BURLINGTON, Mass., December 1, 2015 – Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT (NASDAQ: NTCT), announced today that it has earned recognition in three separate categories as part of this year’s Golden Bridge Awards. The company took home Gold for Arbor Networks APS in the Best Security Hardware category, Bronze for Arbor Networks SA in the Network Visibility Innovations category, and another Bronze award for Innovative Company of the Year.

The annual Golden Bridge Awards program encompasses the world’s best in organizational performance, innovations, products and services, executives and management teams, women in business and the professions, innovations, case studies, product management, public relations and marketing campaigns, and customer satisfaction programs from every major industry in the world. Organizations from all over the world are eligible to submit nominations including public and private, for-profit and non-profit, largest to smallest and new start-ups.

“Innovation is at the heart of who we are as a company,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan. “It is a credit to the engineering and product management  talent we have as an organization that Arbor itself, an advanced threat product and a DDoS mitigation product were all recognized by the Golden Bridge awards.”

GOLD WINNER: Arbor Networks Availability Protection System (APS)
Arbor Networks APS provides proven, on-premise distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) protection for the world’s most critical enterprise and government networks. Enhanced by automatic security updates delivered by Arbor’s Security Engineering and Response Team (ASERT), APS defends against both known and emerging availability threats so organizations can maintain business continuity – no matter what.

BRONZE WINNER: Arbor Networks Security Analytics 
Arbor recognizes that targeted attacks against today’s enterprises are rarely a singular event, but instead a long running orchestrated campaign that starts with a simple compromise and escalates into a larger incident involving unauthorized access and data theft. Arbor Networks Security Analytics swiftly mines terabytes of data from the richest source of network information – full packet captures – to identify activity that indicates the system has been compromised. Powerful visualizations display the data from multiple perspectives, enabling the analyst to quickly compare attack statistics from different time periods or geographic locations, over years or terabytes of traffic.
