Stopping modern-day DDoS attacks requires the collaboration of enterprises, governments and in-cloud managed security service providers. To help facilitate collaboration and address this complex, growing problem, Arbor Networks created the Cloud Signaling Coalition (CSC).
Based on Arbor’s 12 years of experience solving the DDoS attack problem, Arbor believes that best practice dictates an intelligent, layered approach to DDoS protection -- in other words, a combination of in-cloud and on-premise based DDoS attack mitigation. Members of the Cloud Signaling Coalition endorse the concept of intelligent, layered DDoS Protection – all backed by Arbor products and services:
In the cloud, the powerful combination of Peakflow SP—used for pervasive network visibility and threat detection—along with the Peakflow SP Threat Management System (or “TMS”)—used for surgical mitigation of DDoS attacks—offers the ideal solution for in-cloud DDoS protection.
For the network perimeter, Arbor’s Pravail™ Availability Protection System or “APS” protects the availability of services from application-layer attacks.
And finally, Arbor’s powerful and unique Cloud Signaling feature provides active, intelligent communication between network perimeter and in-cloud based DDoS protection systems.
Together Arbor and Cloud Signaling Coalition members offer the most comprehensive DDoS attack protection in the industry today.
