Arbor Networks’ Pravail® Availability Protection System Honored with Silver Award in the 2013 Best in Biz Awards

BURLINGTON, Mass.--()--Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, has been named a silver winner in the Best in Biz Awards for the Pravail® Availability Protection System (APS). Pravail® APS was chosen in the ‘Best New Version of the Year’ category. The Best in Biz Awards are the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts.

“This year has proven to be a challenging one for enterprises who are faced with increasingly complex DDoS attacks, particularly those targeting the application-layer. A successful attack can mean lost availability of Internet-facing services, unhappy customers, lost revenue and tarnished reputation,” said Colin Doherty, President of Arbor Networks. “We’re very happy to be recognized by Best in Biz – it is confirmation of the hard work everyone at this company puts in every single day to help keep our customers safe from the constantly evolving DDoS threat.”

Pravail APS is the first on-premise security product focused on securing the network perimeter from threats against availability – specifically application-layer DDoS attacks. Purpose built for the enterprise, Pravail delivers out-of-the-box, proven attack identification and mitigation capabilities that can be rapidly deployed with little configuration, even during an attack. In addition to its on-premise protection, Pravail allows organizations that are experiencing a DDoS attack to alert their ISPs or cloud providers to the attack and provide salient details that can assist the providers in blocking the attack upstream.

According to Infonetics Research's most recent DDoS Prevention Appliances market report published in June 2013, Arbor's Pravail Availability Protection System is the most broadly deployed enterprise DDoS detection and mitigation solution in the market today.

The third annual Best in Biz Awards program, focusing on companies based or operating in North America, was the most competitive in its history, with the highest number of awards submissions to date and the most distinguished judging panel yet assembled. More than 500 entries were received this year, from a wide array of public and private companies of all sizes and from a variety of industries and geographic regions in the U.S. and Canada. The Best in Biz Awards 2013 honors were presented in more than 50 categories, and were determined by an independent panel of 50 judges from top-tier news, business and technology publications, as well as broadcast outlets and analyst firms from all over the country.

“This year’s Best in Biz Awards nominees offer services and products that reflect the most current trends in technology, from cloud computing through mobile devices to network connectivity,” said Samara Lynn, lead analyst of networking and business at PC Magazine, judging her second Best in Biz Awards program. “Truly, all of the nominees and winners represent the ongoing innovation and trends in technology that we who cover the space see on a daily basis.”
