Tektronix buys DDoS mitigation firm Arbor Networks

Boosts network security credentials

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Telecoms test and network intelligence firm Tektronix Communications has acquired DDoS mitigation firm Arbor Networks. The terms of the deal, announced Monday, remain undisclosed.

Arbor's Peakflow is widely used by carriers as a DDoS prevention platform, while its eSeries platform is used for broadband service optimisation.

Tektronix said Arbor's technology will position it to offer network security for converged carrier networks and next-generation data centers, even as cybercrooks move from volume-based attacks to more sophisticated application strikes targeted at specific services, including Domain Name System (DNS) and cloud-based infrastructures. ®
