Arbor Networks has taken the wraps off version 5.8 of Peakflow SP, its network-wide infrastructure security and traffic-monitoring platform for service, hosting and cloud providers.
Burlington, Mass.-based Arbor says its Peakflow SP platform proactively fends off malicious threats such as botnets and volumetric and application-layer distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, while strengthening the availability and quality of their services.
"For more than 12 years, Peakflow SP has been deployed in the most demanding network environments in the world," said Arbor Networks President Colin Doherty. "The robust platform has evolved significantly over the years. Today, Peakflow SP addresses security issues like DDoS, operational issues such as service quality and network performance and even serves as a platform for revenue generation as a feature of managed security services, which are increasingly in demand by enterprises looking for an added layer of security protection."
New features in Peakflow 5.8 include a new application processor module (APM) card for the TMS 4000; CDN and proxy-aware mitigation; BGP Flowspec Offramp to TMS; profiled interface alerts; and user account scale increase.
