Europe’s Leading Social Networking Website, Netlog Selects Arbor Networks for Network Security and Traffic Engineering
Strategic Business Partner Infradata Delivers Major Deployment for Arbor September 23, 2008 – Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of secure service control solutions for global business networks, announced today that Netlog, Europe’s premier social networking portal, has deployed the Arbor Peakflow SP platform (“Peakflow SP”) for greater network visibility and to enhance its protection against distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks, botnets, worms and other network vulnerabilities. Netlog has more than 34.3 million members throughout Europe, is available in fifteen languages, and has more than 150 million visits per month. Netlog enlisted Infradata, a leading network integrator focused on Next Generation Networks, to assist with the selection and deployment of technology to improve their network-wide visibility into traffic and security threats. “Netlog was looking for network-wide visibility into traffic, as well the ability to identify and mitigate security events as they happen,” said Pieter Vogelaar of Infradata. “Arbor is clearly the leader in delivering service provider quality traffic engineering and security solutions. It was a great fit.” Peakflow SP leverages IP flow data to deliver a unique combination of pervasive visibility into network, application and routing traffic with real-time detection, mitigation, and comprehensive reporting of network anomalies, all from one fully integrated platform. This enables Netlog to minimise the adverse impact of security threats such as DDoS attacks, botnets, and worms as well as network issues such as traffic and routing instability on their network. “Millions of people across Europe make Netlog a part of their day, every day. We have become Europe’s leading social networking platform because our users enjoy a rich, rewarding experience,” said Lorenz Bogaert, chief executive officer of Netlog. “Rapid growth, combined with the security challenges facing all network operators today, led us to investigate solutions that would ensure that same quality experience today, tomorrow and into the future. Peakflow SP is an integrated platform that has delivered multiple benefits to our network, from improved security to more efficient operations.” “As one of Europe’s most popular online destinations, Netlog had a need for pervasive network-wide visibility into traffic because of the implications it can have on network and application performance,” said Tony King, Arbor’s vice president of European operations. “Additionally, Netlog was also concerned about the myriad of security challenges facing network operators today. Peakflow SP is a fully-integrated solution that was able to address these challenges in a cost effective and meaningful way.” About Arbor Networks Arbor Networks is a leading provider of security and network management solutions for global business networks, including more than 70 percent of the world’s Internet service providers and many of the largest enterprise networks in use today.
