British Telecom Chooses Arbor Networks to Protect its Corporate Network

Monday 14 February 2005 13:54 CET | News

British Telecom has chosen Arbor Networks’ Peakflow X to protect its entire corporate network in the United Kingdom from wormsand cyber threats. Peakflow X is being installed across country to monitor worm threats in BT’s critical data centres and buildings.

BT selected Peakflow X to protect its corporate network inside the perimeter firewalls, in what is believed to be the largest internal security deployment to date. BT chose Peakflow X for its ability to monitor for network anomalies as well as its Worm Vaccine™ capability, which enables BT to proactively harden its network before new worms attack and before the vulnerabilities are exploited or even known. While today’s fast-spreading worms have stymied perimeter security products such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems (IDSs) and traditional intrusion prevention systems (IPSs), Peakflow X addresses these challenges by detecting and mitigating threats without the use of signatures. Once a threat is detected, Peakflow X leverages a company’s existing switches, routers, and firewalls to mitigate the attack.
