BURLINGTON, MA., October 7, 2015 – Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT (NASDAQ: NTCT), today announced Sweden’s Elastx, an independent IT services and cloud platform provider, have entered into an agreement that enables Elastx to deliver DDoS protection to its customers. Elastx is now able to differentiate its services by offering the industry’s leading portfolio of DDoS protection solutions, reducing their customers’ risk profile by defending the network from dangerous application-layer and volumetric DDoS attacks.
”Application-layer attacks are typically hard to discover and manage since they often mimic legitimate events in the user interface,” said Joakim Öhman, CTO of Elastx.
Organizations today are heavily dependent on Internet connectivity to run their operations, making them increasingly vulnerable to network-based attacks. By outsourcing to Elastx’s cloud platforms, which now include world leading DDoS protection from Arbor Networks, customers will further benefit by being protected by the industry’s most proven DDoS mitigation technology.
”As a cloud services platform provider, we need to offer the best solutions possible also from a security perspective. The Arbor deal allows us to do just that.” said Henrik Grankvist, COO at Elastx.
“It is encouraging to see that organizations in the Swedish public sector as well as enterprises recognize the scope and scale of the damage that such attacks can achieve. As a result, they are now mobilizing to establish the best possible protection before they can be targeted.”
“With the Elastx offering it will be possible for enterprises and organizations to identify and manage all types of DDoS attacks that threaten the availability of online services and business continuity,” said Olli Lähteenmaa, Arbor Networks Territory Manager Nordics and Baltics.
Availability: The Elastx cloud platforms including the increased security capabilities from Arbor Networks are available now.
