Ubiquity Servers Depends on Arbor Networks for Greater Infrastructure Visibility, Security and DDoS Mitigation

Burlington, MA (PRWEB) February 12, 2013

Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of network security and management solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, today announced that Ubiquity Servers, a leading hosting provider of dedicated servers, cloud hosting and co-location services, has deployed Peakflow SP, the leading network-wide infrastructure security and traffic-monitoring platform for service, hosting and cloud providers.

Ubiquity Servers faces a higher risk of distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks than other online businesses because they aggregate the risk of all their customers. An attack on one customer can affect others and potentially the entire hosting operation because of the heavy reliance on shared infrastructure.

In our business, network connectivity and availability is as fundamental as electrical power. Our customers expect their data to be available, period. For something so fundamental to our business, we choose to work with the best vendors and deploy the most cutting edge solutions. Arbor has delivered, as advertised, said Clint Chapman Co-CEO of Ubiquity Servers.

The number one concern for enterprises considering a hosted environment is security and availability of their data. The move to the cloud is exciting for many reasons related to scale and cost savings, but it can be terrifying as well when you consider the loss of control over company assets, said Arbor Networks President Colin Doherty. We have done exceedingly well in the hosting market because weve built DDoS solutions specifically for a multi-tenant environment so we can mitigate attacks in real-time, while services and data remain available to customers. Ubiquity Servers has been a great partner and has taken a proactive and aggressive approach to securing their hosting facilities.

Integrated DDoS Detection & Mitigation

The vast majority of the worlds leading hosting providers rely on Arbors Peakflow SP to proactively fend off malicious threats such as botnets and volumetric and application-layer DDoS attacks, while strengthening the availability and quality of their services. Ubiquity Servers deployment helps ensure that DDoS attacks are identified and mitigated before they impact customers. Peakflow SP monitors customer access points at the edge of their infrastructure, in addition to constantly monitoring the entire Internet via Arbors ATLAS Intelligence Feed (AIF), looking for attacks that could disrupt or impact the availability of customer data and services. With AIF, updates for new threats are automatically delivered to Peakflow customers, lending critical insight because botnets are constantly changing to thwart detection. When Peakflow SP identifies an attack, traffic is scrubbed and malicious traffic is removed, while the remaining traffic is passed through. This means that customer-facing services remain available while Ubiquity Servers actively mitigates attacks.
