Security Announcements: ALU Integrated Arbor's DDoS Mitigation into its Routers

Alcatel-Lucent and Arbor Networks announced that are ".. offering a joint solution that provides advanced DDoS protection and security capabilities to help address this escalating challenge .. Service providers can deliver denial-of-service ‘scrubbing’ as a cloud-based service from the same platform as virtual private network (VPN) and business Internet services, with minimal incremental investment"

ALU integrates Arbor's Peaklflow SP TMS into its 7750 Service Router. Recently, ALU positioned the 7750 as a mobile gateway (here) and published some data on it DPI capabilities (here).

ALU solution page explains the DDoS mitigation facility protects ".. networks and enterprise services from a wide range of threats, including:
  • TCP stack/generic flood attacks
  • Fragmentation attacks
  • Application layer attacks
  • Vulnerability exploit attacks
  • Malware pipes
