Burlington, Mass. (November 17, 2014)Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, today announced that the Company won multiple awards at the 2014 Fierce Innovation Awards.

The 2014 Fierce Innovation Awards is an annual awards program that highlights products, solutions and services that help to solve critical challenges facing service providers today. It is an operator-reviewed awards program from the publishers of FierceWireless, FierceTelecom and FierceCable.

Arbor Networks Peakflow® Threat Management System won two awards from the annual Fierce Innovation Awards program. Not only was the Peakflow Threat Management System chosen as the winner for best network and device security, but it was also chosen for ‘Best in Show’ in technological problem-solving. Only five companies are selected for “Best in Show” honors based on a second round of judging once overall category winners are selected.

“Arbor is a company founded out of groundbreaking research at the University of Michigan nearly 15 years ago. At the core of the company, we’ve always been about research and innovation,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan. “When you think about the importance of the world’s largest network operators being able to maintain the availability of their networks and services, then you realize what a special and important product the Peakflow Threat Management System is. The ability to filter and mitigate DDoS traffic from legitimate traffic in real-time was a critical innovation that allows network operators to maintain availability of websites and services even while under attack.”

Many of the world's leading cloud, hosting and service providers rely on Arbor's Peakflow DDoS protection platform to proactively fend off malicious threats such as botnets and volumetric and application-layer distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, while strengthening the availability and quality of their services.

The Peakflow platform includes two main components, Peakflow and the Peakflow Threat Management System. Peakflow combines network-wide anomaly detection and traffic engineering with the Peakflow Threat Management System’s carrier-class threat management, which automatically detects and surgically removes only attack traffic, while maintaining other business traffic.
