NETSCOUT’s Arbor Cloud Expands DDoS Protection Across Asia

October 24, 2018

Distributed Architecture Allows for Greater Scale While Also Addressing Emerging Data Privacy Considerations for Cloud Services

WESTFORD, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- NETSCOUT SYSTEMS, INC. (NASDAQ: NTCT), a leading provider of service assurance, security, and business analytics, today announced that it has expanded attack mitigation scrubbing centers for its Arbor Cloud DDoS managed service in Japan and Singapore while also opening a new scrubbing facility in Australia. Additionally, the Company has added new regional resources to its security research organization, the ATLAS Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT).

By distributing mitigation capacity across more scrubbing centers in Asia, attacks can be mitigated faster and with greater efficiency since they will be closer to the source. This distributed model enables customer traffic to stay in-region and, in some cases, in-country. The Arbor Cloud scrubbing centers in Tokyo, Singapore, and Sydney strategically expand coverage that is in closer geographic proximity to many of its largest customers and prospects in the Asia Pacific region. Not only does this allow for quicker remediation, it provides additional value by addressing emerging data privacy considerations on cloud service providers.

Building on NETSCOUT’s Position as Frost & Sullivan’s Asia Pacific ‘Anti-DDoS Solutions Vendor of the Year’

These investments by NETSCOUT follow a recent announcement from Frost & Sullivan, one of the foremost technology research firms tracking the DDoS market, naming Arbor as the best ‘Anti-DDoS Solutions Vendor’ in Asia Pacific for the third consecutive year.

“NETSCOUT’s Arbor solutions provide customers with comprehensive, high-performing and cost-effective solutions to help them protect against volumetric and sophisticated DDoS attacks. Vast global intelligence, outstanding expertise in DDoS attack management, extensive network partners around the world, and commitment to automation and innovation allow NETSCOUT to outshine competitors and gain greater popularity among organizations in the region, particularly telcos, governments, and enterprises that run critical information infrastructure,” said Vu Anh Tien, Industry Analyst, Cybersecurity Practice at Frost & Sullivan.

ASERT’s Unique Global Perspective

ASERT’s global view into the threat landscape and attack trends reflects the substantial investment in the ATLAS infrastructure, a collaborative project with hundreds of network operators who have agreed to share anonymous traffic data covering approximately one-third of all internet traffic. From this unique vantage point, ASERT develops campaign-oriented threat intelligence for customers, complete with the context and confidence information required to detect and stop specific threats and enhance security posture over time. ASERT shares operationally viable intelligence with international Computer Emergency Response Teams (CERTs) and with network operators around the world via intelligence briefs and security content feeds.
