20 Jul 2017

Frost & Sullivan has presented Arbor Networks the 2017 Asia Pacific Anti-DDoS Vendor of the Year award.

The accolade was given to Arbor Networks at the annual Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific ICT Awards Banquet, held recently in Singapore.

The recipients of the various awards were chosen based on in-depth research conducted by Frost & Sullivan analyst.

Short-listed companies were evaluated on a variety of actual market performance indicators which include revenue growth; market share and growth in market share; leadership in product innovation; marketing strategy and business development strategy.

Industry analyst of Cyber Security Practice at Frost & Sullivan, Mr. Vu Anh Tien says Arbor Networks maintained its tremendous growth of 37.7 percent on a YoY basis to extend its leadership in the DDoS solution market in Asia Pacific in 2016.

"Aiming to provide customers with comprehensive solutions to protect against volumetric and sophisticated DDoS attacks, the company continued to strengthen its security ecosystems by advancing its detection capability with a stronger integration of its threat intelligence via the ATLAS Intelligence Feed, integrating mitigation automation mechanism, and increasing mitigation capacity on both hardware appliances and cloud-based scrubbing services," says Mr. Vu.

"By providing a hybrid anti-DDoS protection model with its advanced solutions and services, Arbor Networks is able to cater to the rising demand for DDoS protection among service providers and large organizations that need to defend sophisticated and large volumetric DDoS attacks, particularly with the emergence of IoT botnets."

Mr. Vu also commended Arbor Networks on its penetration into a number of different industries, specifically among telcos, Internet service providers, data centre service providers, banks and government organisations across Asia Pacific.

Arbor Networks vice president for Asia Pacific, Jeff Buhl says the company is proud to be presented with the award.

"Arbor Networks is investing to grow in Asia, expanding our research team to Japan and adding new scrubbing centers in Tokyo and Singapore as part of our Arbor Cloud DDoS mitigation infrastructure,” says Buhl.

“We're also focused on delivering low-cost virtualized solutions and managed services to bring the industry's leading DDoS mitigation technology to a broader set of enterprise customers."
