LEXINGTON, Mass. -- Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of secure service control solutions for global business networks, announced today the first 10G DDoS detection and mitigation system with application-layer attack detection and counter measures. The Threat Management System 3100 (TMS) delivers deep packet inspection (DPI) of more than 80 critical IP services and applications running on the network, such as DNS, HTTP, VoIP, IM and P2P, while also delivering application-layer attack detection, surgical mitigation and reporting. This unique combination allows service providers to maintain availability, reduce support costs and optimize current or future business services.

By tightly integrating TMS into the Peakflow SP platform (“Peakflow SP”), Arbor Networks delivers a solution that combines network-wide anomaly detection and traffic engineering with carrier-class threat management that automatically detects and surgically removes only attack traffic while maintaining legitimate business traffic. Additionally, TMS complements Peakflow SP’s other mitigation techniques including fingerprint sharing, Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) black-hole routing, BGP flow-spec and support for other mitigation technologies.

The Peakflow SP platform offers an industry-unique combination of macro-level (IP flow) and micro-level (deep packet inspection) analysis to address all network security threats. Competitive solutions require operators to log in to multiple devices to address a single security threat. This creates a cumbersome and inefficient process at a time when split-second decision making is paramount. TMS streamlines operations and speeds reaction time by providing users with a single console and common user interface for thwarting multiple attacks. In addition, TMS can reduce operating expenses through simplified provisioning and uncomplicated ongoing maintenance. As a result, it can provide a much lower total cost of ownership than competitive solutions.
