Global Threat Intelligence

Arbor has a long history in botnet research and DDoS mitigation. However, as DDoS has moved from just a diversion to be a feature of malware and botnets used in cybercrime and APT attacks, Arbor has expanded its research team and research capabilities to tackle additional threat types.

What separates Arbor’s threat intelligence from other vendors is how the team uses its pervasive service provider footprint and critical partnerships to obtain and analyze security events. The rich data that comes from this intelligence is passed on to customers through the ATLAS® Intelligence Feed, giving them both a micro view of their own network combined with a macro view of global Internet traffic; this is a powerful combination of network security intelligence that is unrivaled today.

Critical components include:


ATLAS is the world’s first and largest globally scoped threat analysis network. Launched in 2007 in partnership with a group of Arbor service provider customers, ATLAS delivers unparalleled visibility into the backbone networks that form the Internet’s core. As the power of this data became evident, participation has grown to more than 330 customers who have agreed to share anonymous traffic data, 140 Tbps or approximately one-third of all Internet traffic. With the actionable intelligence provided by ATLAS, Arbor customers can make timely and informed decisions about their network security, as well as service creation, market analysis, capacity planning and application trends.

Red Sky Alliance

Arbor Networks is a founding member of the Red Sky® Alliance—a private social network of trusted security experts that collaborate on the identification and neutralization of malware and other advanced threats. As a member, Arbor has access to more than 23 million PCs being actively monitored for threat intelligence.

Other resources

The research team uses a rich malware analysis backend system comprised of both external partner technology along with internally developed analysis and processes.
