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
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

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.
The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

What are the new priorities for the connected business? First: businesses need to think differently about the types of connections they will need to make – these span well beyond the traditional app to app into more modern forms of integration including SaaS integrations, mobile integrations, APIs, device integration and Big Data integration. It’s important these are unified together vs. doing them all piecemeal. Second, these types of connections need to be simple to design, adapt and configure...

Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of ...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies.
