Cisco, Arbor Partnering For Threat Defense Tech; Tom Bienkowski Comments

CiscoLogoCisco is collaborating with Arbor Networks to deploy a unified threat management offering for helping defend against distributed denial-of-service attacks.

Tom Bienkowski, Arbor director of product marketing at Arbor,  told NetworkWorld.com Cisco will embed Arbor’s Peakflow SP Threat Management System into a module on its carrier-class CRS-1 routers.

Ellen Messmer writes the companies are aiming to detect threats and scrub attack traffic.

Bienkowski told the website each Cisco Carrier Grade Service Engine module could mitigate DDoS attacks at a rate of 10 gigabytes per second.

The partnership extends the two companies' anti-DDoS collaboration, which started after Cisco stopped selling its own DDoS defense system in 2010.
