Web Drive Limited Selects Arbor Cloud℠ Multi-Layered DDoS Protection

Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, today announced that Web Drive Limited, a leading web hosting and domain name provider in New Zealand, has selected Arbor Cloud℠ for multi-layered DDoS protection from the full spectrum of modern DDoS attacks that target bandwidth, applications and infrastructure, often at the same time.

Web Drive Limited is New Zealand's largest web hosting provider; trusted by 25,000 customers. In addition to web hosting services, Web Drive also offers cloud server hosting, and reseller domain name systems to make it easier for customers to manage their domain name portfolio.

“At Web Drive, we pride ourselves on providing unsurpassed expertise and innovation to our customers and that now comes in the form of how we protect our customers from the growing constellation of threats targeting their networks,” said Robin Dickie, managing director, Web Drive Limited. “By choosing Arbor’s multi-layered approach to DDoS protection with Arbor Cloud, we’re giving our customers the chance to protect themselves both in the cloud and on-premise, which has become a must-have in today’s threat environment.”

“There’s little doubt that DDoS attacks continue to rise in size, frequency and complexity,” said Nick Race, country manager ANZ, Arbor Networks. “This trend is putting tremendous pressure on providers who are challenged with not having enough capacity to manage very large attacks. With its multi-layered DDoS protection, Arbor Cloud addresses these issues. Web Drive now has the layered DDoS protection solution they need to help protect their own networks and their customers’ networks from the threats posted by multi-layer DDoS threats that combine complex attack techniques with volumetric attacks that flood the network to the point of shutdown.”

Arbor Cloud DDoS Protection for Enterprises

DDoS has become a primary threat to the availability of enterprise networks. DDoS was once a basic high-volume attack that flooded the pipes of its targets. The modern DDoS threat is a complex series of attacks that target not just connection bandwidth, but multiple devices that make up existing security infrastructure, such as firewall/IPS devices, as well as a wide variety of applications that the business relies on, like HTTP, HTTPS, VoIP, DNS and SMTP. These infrastructure and application-layer attacks are low volume and they are designed to evade traditional perimeter defenses, and often target them. Best practice defense recommends a combination of cloud-based protection against high-volume attacks, and on-premise protection against application and infrastructure attacks.

With Arbor Cloud DDoS protection, enterprises can now deploy best-practices defense in a single solution, with integrated mitigation from the premise to the cloud. Arbor Cloud helps protect enterprises against a wide spectrum of DDoS attacks, including volumetric, application-layer, state-exhaustion (e.g. targeting firewall/IPS), blended and multi-vector DDoS attacks. The ease of use of the on-premise Pravail® Availability Protection System enables existing enterprise IT staff to maintain control of the mitigation, and gives them the ability to quickly alert the cloud when attacks reach a certain size that cannot be handled on premise. Arbor Cloud is integrated protection from the cloud to the premise, from the world’s leading provider of DDoS detection and mitigation solutions, according to Infonetics Research.
