Arbor Networks Debuts Spectrum

PRESS RELEASE — BURLINGTON, Mass., February 9, 2016 Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT (NASDAQ: NTCT), today introduces a new security platform for advanced threat protection. Arbor Networks Spectrum™ is designed for the security team, from the most senior responder to the front line analyst, to allow them to surface and search the entire network to uncover and investigate the most complex attacks in minutes not hours. By accelerating the workflows where security operations spend most of their time, and utilizing Arbor’s unique Internet visibility to connect threat actor activity happening on the broader Internet with the internal conversations and lateral movement of attackers on customer networks, Arbor is delivering a platform to reduce business risk from cyber-threats.

“One of the greatest sources of enterprise risk today is a lack of visibility into, and understanding of, attack campaign activity on the Internet and how it manifests itself on the internal network. This gap is exploited by the most sophisticated and persistent attackers who design campaigns that evade traditional defenses, and then further exploit the event driven incident response process. As a result, CISO’s are often unable to make proper risk based decisions that enable their teams to focus on the most critical advanced threats targeting their organizations,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan.{ad}

ATLAS Global Threat Intelligence Indicators

ATLAS is a collaborative platform with more than 300 service provider customers sharing traffic and threat data, giving Arbor visibility into approximately one-third of all Internet traffic. Arbor’s Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT) utilizes a combination of ATLAS information, in-depth malware research and data from real-time botnet activity monitoring to understand current threats. ASERT knows when an attack is launched immediately, and what data the attackers are receiving back, enabling Arbor to provide much needed risk context. Through this unique global lens, Arbor allows defenders to move at the same speed as the attackers regardless of where and whom they are targeting.

See and Search the Internal Network

Arbor Networks Spectrum integrates ATLAS global threat intelligence with real-time visual workflows and analytics of all network and threat activity, past and present. Arbor Networks Spectrum platform instruments NetFlow and performs packet capture, allowing defenders to surface and then search to detect, investigate and prove threats within and across the network 10X faster than traditional forensics or SIEM solutions.

“There are no magic bullets only better approaches and processes. From the network, you can see all communications immediately, everywhere, you can look behaviorally and with pattern matching, you can look back in time, interrupt C2, updates to bots and tools. No matter how dramatic changes to network infrastructure have become, all roads lead back to …


… the network,” said Arbor Networks Chief Security &Technology Officer Sam Curry.
