September 2008 by Marc Jacob
Arbor Networks announced that it has been selected by leading research and consulting firm Frost & Sullivan as this year’s recipient of the 2008 Growth Strategy Excellence of the Year Award. Frost & Sullivan selected Arbor because the company has demonstrated excellence in implementing and sustaining growth within shipments, revenues and profitability.
In addition to lauding the company for the successful acquisition of Ellacoya Networks in January, Frost & Sullivan recognises Arbor Networks for the company’s continued product innovation. According to Frost & Sullivan, Arbor products have been steadily enhanced to meet increased bandwidth and user requirements, going from 3 Gbps to 10 Gbps and supporting up to 100 million subscribers. This is a significant challenge for any company, but is particularly challenging for a small company like Arbor; the company retains an impressive customer base that demonstrates and fortifies its products’ reliability, scalability and ability to protect small, medium and very large networks.
Arbor solutions deliver best-in-class network security and visibility, along with the power to improve profitability by deploying differentiated, revenue-generating secure services.
Today, Arbor’s customers include more than 70 percent of the world’s ISPs and many large enterprises. By employing flow-based and DPI technologies, Arbor solutions measure and protect the entire network - from the service provider core to the broadband edge.
Arbor has become a trusted partner of the Internet Service Provider (ISP) community, developing numerous, innovative industry initiatives that require cross-provider collaboration and sharing of anonymised data. To date, Arbor has successfully launched the Fingerprint Sharing Alliance (FSA), a first-of-its-kind industry initiative aimed at helping network operators share Internet attack information automatically; the annual Worldwide Infrastructure Security Report; and ATLAS, the world’s first globally scoped threat analysis network, which uses technology embedded in the world’s largest ISP networks to sense and report on comprehensive worldwide threat intelligence.
