Security teams face increasing asymmetry with their attackers.

The Mean Time to Detect an attack is typically greater than 150 days yet the Mean Time for the adversary to initially compromise a network is under 10 minutes. Arbor Spectrum can dramatically increase the entire security team’s Mean Time To Know when an attacker is already inside, and take swift action to eject or contain them.

The new defender’s reality is now one where the attack tools, such as malware, typically used to initially compromise a network are no longer the weapons of choice. Greater than 50% of attacks in 2016 used tools that did not contain malware and were often undetectable using traditional perimeter security solutions and SIEMs. Instead attackers today gain access to user accounts and manipulate well known IT applications or operating systems.

That’s why you need a comprehensive visibility strategy that provides unprecedented awareness of the traffic flowing throughout your organization.

Arbor Spectrum is a high-performance network traffic analysis solution that detects and confirms previously hidden threats faster and more accurately than ever before. Leveraging our ATLAS threat intelligence platform, Arbor Spectrum arms security teams with the right information to neutralize attackers in near real time.
