BURLINGTON, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat
protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, today
announced that AutoScout 24 has selected Arbor's Pravail
Availability Protection System to help protect their network from
application-layer DDoS attacks that target availability.
AutoScout24 is the largest online car market Europe-wide. Its almost 20
million users a year (ACTA 2013) have more than 2 million vehicles in
four different marketplaces to choose from: new cars, used
cars and motorcycles,
vehicles and parts and accessories. More than 40,000 dealers use
AutoScout24 throughout Europe. In Germany, the AutoScout24 Car
Workshop Portal can also be used to find, compare and book workshop
services. AutoScout24 is part of the Scout24 Group, with its brands
FinanceScout24, FriendScout24, ImmobilienScout24, JobScout24 and
“Our business model is entirely dependent on the Internet to generate
revenue; that is why data security is paramount to us, our business and
hence our customers Europe-wide,” said Thomas Stapfer, Senior Network
Architect of AutoScout24. “By selecting Arbor Networks, we are
partnering with the world leader in DDoS mitigation, further
demonstrating our commitment to ensuring reliable, consistent service,
something our customers expect from us.”
“The complexity of DDoS attacks and the sheer number that target the
application-level is higher than ever as attackers recognize the
criticality of availability to companies like AutoScout24 who conduct
all of their business online,” said Matthew Moynahan, President of Arbor
Networks. “Our technology is purpose-built to defend against these
attacks, unlike traditional security devices that simply weren’t
designed for the DDoS problem. With the Pravail Availability Protection
System, our customers can maintain better control over availability,
using technology that has been tested time and again in the world's
largest and most complex networks."
World Leader in DDoS Prevention
Arbor Networks' customers include many of the world's ISPs and many of
the largest enterprise networks in use today. According to a report
published in June 2013 from Infonetics Research titled, DDoS
Prevention Appliance Market Outlook, Arbor’s Pravail®
Availability Protection System is the most broadly deployed enterprise DDoS
detection and mitigation solution in the market today.
The Pravail Availability Protection System is the first on-premise
security product focused on securing the network perimeter from threats
against availability— specifically, application-layer DDoS attacks.
Purpose built for the enterprise, the Pravail Availability Protection
System delivers out of the box, proven attack identification and
mitigation capabilities that can be rapidly deployed with little
configuration, even during an attack. In addition to its on-premise
protection, the Pravail Availability Protection System allows
organizations that are experiencing a DDoS attack to alert their ISPs or
cloud providers to the attack and provide salient details that can
assist the providers in blocking the attack upstream.
