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.

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered.

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures.
Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer.
Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
