Let’s face it. There is no peace time. Whether it be new forms of DDoS attacks, ransomware, phishing attempts compromised BYOD and IoT devices, organizations are under constant threat from all types of advanced cyber threats. To address these evolving threats, overtime, the modern-day security stack has become larger, more complex but unfortunately still is failing as evidenced by the daily reports of data breaches and downtime.

Security teams need best of breed cyber security solutions that can detect and stop all types of cyber threats - both inbound threats and outbound malicious communication from compromised internal devices. As importantly, these solutions must also be able to integrate into an organization’s existing security stack and/or consolidate functionality to reduce cost, complexity and risk.

NETSCOUT’s Arbor Edge Defense (AED) is such a solution. Arbor Edge Defense’s unique position on the network edge (i.e. between the router and the firewall), its stateless packet processing engine and the continuous reputation based threat intelligence it receives from Arbor’s ATLAS Threat Intelligence feed enable it to automatically detect and stop both inbound threats (e.g. DDoS attacks, malware) and outbound communication from internal compromised hosts – essentially acting as the first and last line of defense for organizations.
