iomart Group has selected the Arbor Peakflow SP platform to protect its infrastructure from distributed denial of service attacks that are the primary threat to the availability of their services..

"Everything we've built at iomart, from our world-class infrastructure to our dedicated 24x7 support team, starts with the availability of our services. DDoS has become a primary threat to availability, especially within an infrastructure environment like ours where multiple enterprise customers exist side-by-side. That's why we've chosen to be proactive and deploy the world's leading DDoS mitigation technology from Arbor Networks," said iomart Chief Executive Angus MacSween.

"The Cloud Hosting market is a highly competitive one, and businesses have many options. iomart has been able to distinguish itself because of its combination of world-class infrastructure, service and support. Many organisations wait until they've been taken offline to get serious about DDoS protection. Not iomart. They're moving proactively to secure their own infrastructure and offer their customers availability protection as part of their core services. With a commitment to quality like that, it's no wonder that their customers are so satisfied with their services," said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan.

The Peakflow SP platform includes two main components, Peakflow SP and the Peakflow Threat Management System. Peakflow SP combines network-wide anomaly detection and traffic engineering with TMS's carrier-class threat management, which automatically detects and surgically removes only attack traffic, while maintaining other business traffic. With the ability to mitigate only the attack traffic, customer-facing services remain available while providers actively mitigate attacks. The platform powers many of the world's leading cloud-based DDoS managed security services.
