Arbor Networks announced that "Japan’s KDDI .. has deployed Arbor’s Peakflow SP platform .. among the first providers in the world to include the new ATLAS Intelligence Feed (AIF) in a service offering. The AIF provides automated, up-to-date protection against the growing threat of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks ensuring that KDDI is offering leading edge security solutions".
"Peakflow SP combines network-wide anomaly detection and traffic engineering with TMS’s carrier-class threat management capabilities. When Peakflow SP identifies an attack, customer traffic is diverted to the Arbor Threat Management System where it is scrubbed, and network and application-layer attack traffic surgically removed, while legitimate business traffic is passed through to the customer without interrupting services. This powerful combination of visibility and security helps enable KDDI to maintain availability, reduce support costs and optimize current or future business service .. A new feature within the Peakflow platform is the ATLAS Intelligence Feed (AIF) which delivers deep DDoS signatures in real-time to keep networks protected against hundreds of botnet-fueled DDoS attack toolsets and their variants".
