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

Arbor 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 practices.

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.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing.
