Arbor reveals security research capability and new intelligence feed built into Pravail solutions
DUBAI, UAE: Arbor Networks Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, announced a new reputation-based threat feed as part of its ATLAS Intelligence Feed (AIF) service.
AIF is a research-driven feed of security policies designed to update Arbor's Pravail products quickly and accurately by identifying threats based on real-world attack activity, reputation and behavior.
The introduction of AIF comes at a time when organizations are feeling ill-prepared for the variety of threats targeting their networks. According to a recently-released global survey of CISOs and senior IT executives that was sponsored by Arbor and conducted by the Economist Intelligence Unit, only 17 percent of business leaders feel fully prepared for an incident.
The report, titled Cyber Incident Response: Are business leaders ready? also found that 41 percent of business leaders noted that a better understanding of potential threats would help them feel better prepared to respond to those threats. The ATLAS Intelligence Feed helps to address this problem of visibility and threat context that business leaders are looking for.
