Today, a majority of the world’s network service providers use Arbor’s Peakflow® solution for network visibility and advanced threat protection for their fixed networks. As the lines blur between fixed and mobile connectivity, Arbor’s Peakflow Mobile Network Analysis product enables multi-service network operators to deploy a single solution providing pervasive network visibility and advanced threat protection for their fixed, HSPA/LTE and cloud infrastructures.
Today’s service provider networks have become much more complex environments as mobility and cloud-based services have become essential enablers of our digital lifestyle. Along with these innovations have emerged new classes of threats to mobile network service performance and availability. For example:
- According to Heavy Reading’s 2013 Mobile NetworkSecurity Survey, 60% of mobile network operators have experienced a network outage or service degradation lasting at least an hour due to malicious attacks.
- Similar trends are corroborated in Arbor’s 9th Annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Survey Report, in which 25% of respondents have experienced attacks against their mobile users, RAN, back-haul or packet core - and another 29% aren't sure due to lack of visibility.
