Arbor Cloud has pioneered the concept of hybrid DDoS defense integrating attack mitigation between the Enterprise and the Cloud. This is the only way to be protected from modern DDoS attacks. Very large DDoS attacks, the ones that grab headlines, must be mitigated in the Cloud, away from the intended targeted. More difficult to defend are “low and slow” attacks target critical business applications. To defend against these attacks, as well as attacks that target existing infrastructure, like Firewalls, requires on-premise protection. Arbor has led the industry in pushing hybrid defense and today it is the accepted best practice according to industry analysts, including IDC, Infonetics, Forrester, Frost & Sullivan and Ovum. Arbor has patented cloud signaling capability that tightly connects on-premise and cloud-based mitigations, speeding time to mitigation significantly.
Frost & Sullivan, “Frost & Sullivan strongly recommends a multi-layer defense as best practice for DDoS protection. Arbor is now enabling that in a variety of ways”
