Cyber threats – or more specifically, DDoS attacks – are an ever-growing, ever-evolving phenomenon – where today, any company can become a target either directly or indirectly, leaving behind a long-lasting impact beyond simply shutting down services for a period of time. Customer trust can be lost, a company’s brand negatively impacted, and perhaps the most obvious one: lost revenue and profit.

Most security vendors are able to offer excellent visibility across customer networks. After all, you can’t protect against threats that you cannot see. What makes the Arbor Networks Active Threat Level Analysis System (ATLAS) so unique and valuable to customers is that not only do we provide visibility about the traffic and threats on their own network, but we can do it across the Internet itself.
Fueled by their subscribers’ insatiable demand for smarter mobile devices and multimedia content, mobile network operators (MNOs) have seen tremendous growth in mobile traffic on their networks. Along with this growth, MNOs face the ever-increasing challenge of maintaining the availability and performance of their mobile network and services to enhance their customers’ quality of experience.
However, not all threats to the availability and security of mobile networks are created equally. This is a big topic for us, particularly this week as we head to CTIA in Las Vegas (booth #4018) where we look forward to talking to MNOs who struggle with this growing issue.
