Thailand’s CAT Telecom Joins Arbor Networks’ Cloud Signaling℠ Coalition for Multi-Layer DDoS Protection
|By Business Wire

Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat
protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks,
announced today that Thailand’s CAT Telecom has joined Arbor’s Cloud
Signaling Coalition (CSC). Arbor’s powerful and unique Cloud
SignalingSM feature provides active, intelligent
communication between network perimeter and in-cloud based DDoS
protection systems. This integrated, multi-layered protection is
considered best practice when defending against today’s sophisticated
and explosive DDoS attacks.
“Defending against DDoS attacks can be a challenge for an ISP and its
enterprise customers. That’s why we chose Arbor Networks. Not only can
we deploy the market’s leading solution to protect our own
infrastructure, we can simultaneously solve a problem for our customers
by offering DDoS security services,” said Viroj Tocharoenvanith, SEVP of
Marketing and Sales for CAT Telecom.
“CAT Telecom recognizes DDoS for what it is, the primary threat to the
availability of websites, applications and online services. DDoS has
changed greatly over the years. What hasn’t changed is the need for
multi-layered protection, backed by great people and repeatable incident
response processes,” said Arbor Networks Jeff Buhl, Vice President of
Sales for Asia Pacific.
Cloud Signaling In Action
When an enterprise or data center operator discovers that they are under
a service-disrupting DDoS
attack, they can choose to mitigate the attack in the cloud through
the Cloud Signaling system, simply by clicking on a drop down menu and
triggering an alert to the service provider. The signal can also be set
at a predetermined capacity level for more automated protection. A
volumetric DDoS attack congesting the upstream links would immediately
diminish or disappear altogether from the data center’s access links,
and service availability would be protected.
Participation in the Cloud Signaling Coalition allows CAT Telecom to
provide differentiated managed security services, reduces the time to
mitigation and increases the effectiveness of the response against DDoS
threats. Enterprise and managed services customers benefit from
real-time monitoring of the attack mitigation, as well as granular post
mortem reports with details of the attack and the steps taken by the
service provider to mitigate the attack, helping to establish best
At the heart of Cloud Signaling functionality are Arbor Networks’
Peakflow® SP and Pravail® Availability Protection
System solutions. Peakflow SP powers many of the world’s leading
cloud-based DDoS managed security services, while the Pravail
Availability Protection System is an on-premise solution that protects
the network perimeter against threats to availability — specifically,
application-layer DDoS attacks.
World Leader in DDoS Mitigation
Arbor Networks’ customers include a majority of the world's service
providers and many of the largest enterprise networks in use today.
According to a June 2014 report from Infonetics Research titled, DDoS
Prevention Appliance Market Outlook, Arbor Networks was cited as top
supplier of DDoS prevention solutions overall as well as in the Carrier,
Enterprise and Mobile market segments.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.
