“To be recognized as Best Overall IT Company for a second consecutive year is a tremendous accomplishment for our team.

Gold Award: Best Overall IT Company of the Year
Arbor leverages its unique customer footprint and experience working with the world’s most demanding network operators to develop more enduring security solutions for the threats faced by enterprises. Arbor does this by focusing on the networks themselves, rather than just specific threats or points in the network.

Arbor customers gain a micro view of their own network, through our suite of products, combined with a macro view of global Internet traffic and emerging threats, through our ATLAS threat intelligence infrastructure. ATLAS collects up to 120Tbps of global Internet traffic from over 330 service provider customers—enabling Arbor to provide a comprehensive, aggregated view of global traffic and threats. Protections are delivered directly into Arbor’s solutions to stop DDoS attacks and malware campaigns. This is a powerful combination of network security intelligence that is unrivaled today.

Gold Award: Security Hardware - Pravail Availability Protection System
The Pravail Availability Protection System is the first on-premise security product focused on securing the network perimeter from threats against availability— specifically, application-layer DDoS attacks. Purpose built for the enterprise, the Pravail Availability Protection System delivers out of the box, proven attack identification and mitigation capabilities that can be rapidly deployed with little configuration, even during an attack. In addition to its on-premise protection, the Pravail Availability Protection System allows organizations that are experiencing a DDoS attack to alert their ISPs or cloud providers to the attack and provide salient details that can assist the providers in blocking the attack upstream.

Bronze: Insider Threat Detection Solutions – Pravail Security Analytics
The Pravail Security Analytics platform enables organizations to deal with advanced threats by offering an unprecedented and detailed view of the attacks in any captured network traffic. It allows security analysts to assess an organization’s security posture at a glance, displaying attack trends and severity across long periods of time. Powerful visualizations display the data from multiple perspectives (attacker, target, location or attack type) enabling the analyst to quickly compare attack statistics from different periods or locations, over years or terabytes of traffic. Once an indicator of compromise has been identified, Pravail Security Analytics provides the analyst with actionable intelligence, allowing confirmation of the exact details and extent of the attack. Further, Pravail Security Analytics provides a look back in time, re-evaluating existing data with new attack information to ensure a complete picture of compromise.
