S E C U R I T Y l CASE STUDY l Customer Profile This Western European organization is in the business of consulting on network infrastructure with insurance, government, and financial institutions in the region. They also offer hosting services through two local service providers for some of their client's networks. When we first encountered them, they were a small company but are currently on an accelerated growth path. Initially they had two Data Centers housing their customer networks but only one had DDoS protection and it was in the form of and always on cloud implementation. They shared with the NETSCOUT Team that they still had some identified DDoS activity that seemed to get by the cloud solution. The Challenge Due to the accelerated growth of the organization and increased regulations around banking customers, they realized they had to upgrade their DDoS protection immediately. Because of a trusted relationship with a common reseller and that resellers recommendation around Arbor's reputation in the DDoS Security field, the organization looked to us for guidance. Even with that resellers high praise, when the NETSCOUT team arrived on site for an executive meeting it seemed that everyone in the room felt that they already had a solution and were still leaning toward an always on cloud solution. The Solution What the customer did not realize was that the NETSCOUT Team had a very persuasive ally in Omnis Threat Horizon. Prior to arriving for the meeting, the team prepared a report from the Omnis Threat Horizon Kiosk which showed several attacks on their datacenters in the form of attacks that regularly get by always on cloud solutions including attacks at the application layer and attacks identified in encrypted traffic. The executive team agreed that the report synced up almost 100% with the attacks that the organizations security personnel had experienced over the past two years. The NETSCOUT Team now had everyone's attention in the room. OVERVIEW The Challenge Increased regulation compliance drives need for organization to rethink DDoS protection strategy. The Solution • Omnis ® Threat Horizon • Arbor Edge Defense ® (AED) • Arbor Cloud ® The Results With the understanding of the complexity of current DDoS attacks provided by NETSCOUT ® , organization chooses a hybrid approach and meets newly created protection goals.
