Evaluating the Network-based Approach to Advanced Threat Protection

Arbor Networks LogoArbor Networks has announced that leading global telecoms analyst firm Ovum has published a strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats (SWOT) analysis of version 2.1 of Arbor Networks Spectrum, its network-based advanced threat detection and analytics platform. Arbor Spectrum empowers security teams to uncover, investigate and prove sophisticated attack campaigns within minutes, not hours or days.

Quote from Ovum report: Why consider Arbor Spectrum?
“Arbor Spectrum deals with the threat identification issues that security managers need to address on a day-to-day basis. Security professionals have concerns about zero-day and advanced persistent threats (APTs), and their ability to spot serious attempts to steal sensitive data among all the other noise generated by everyday traffic flowing across their networks.

Arbor Spectrum combines the delivery of global attack intelligence with the network visibility needed to identify suspicious activity as it happens. Its network-based platform has been designed to make security investigations more focused and help security managers deal with the threats that matter most to their organisations.”
