Threat protection reinforced with ‘Arbor Networks Spectrum’

Arbor Networks, the security division of NETSCOUT , has introduced a new security platform for advanced threat protection. Arbor Networks Spectrum is designed specifically for security teams, from the most senior responder to novice analysts, to search the entire network to uncover, investigate and prove sophisticated attack campaigns within minutes, not hours or days.

By integrating intuitive “speed of thought” workflows and Arbor’s unique visibility into threat actor activity happening on the global Internet, Arbor Spectrum uncovers the internal conversations and lateral movement of attackers on customer networks to reduce business risk from advanced cyber-threats.

ATLAS Global Threat Intelligence Indicators

Active Threat Level Analysis System (ATLAS) is a global collaborative platform with more than 300 Arbor service provider customers sharing traffic and threat data, giving Arbor visibility into approximately one-third of all Internet traffic. Arbor’s Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT) utilises a combination of ATLAS information, in-depth malware research and data from real-time botnet activity monitoring to understand current threats. ASERT knows when an attack is launched immediately, and what data the attackers are receiving back, enabling Arbor to provide much needed risk context. Through this unique global lens, Arbor allows defenders to move at the same speed as the attackers regardless of where and whom they are targeting.

See and Search the Internal Network

Arbor Networks Spectrum integrates ATLAS global threat intelligence with real-time visual workflows and analytics of all network and threat activity, past and present. Arbor Networks Spectrum platform instruments flow and performs packet capture, allowing defenders to surface and then search to detect, investigate and prove threats within and across the network 10X faster than traditional forensics or SIEM solutions.

Arbor Networks, President, Matthew Moynahan, “One of the greatest sources of enterprise risk today is not understanding that the attack environment has become personal. Sophisticated and persistent attackers design campaigns that evade traditional defenses, and then exploit an incident response process that is noisy, event driven, and managed by overwhelmed and understaffed teams. As a result, CISOs are often unable to make proper risk-based decisions and guide their teams to focus and find the true threats that represent the highest source of risk to their organisations, while they are in process.”

Arbor Networks, Chief Security and Technology Officer, Sam Curry, “The good guys deserve an unfair advantage though smarter approaches and processes. From the network, you can see all communications immediately and everywhere. You can look behaviorally and with pattern matching, you can look back in time, interrupt command and control, and updates to bots and tools. No matter how dramatic the changes to network infrastructure have become, all roads lead back to the truths that only network traffic reveals.”
