BURLINGTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 10/07/13 -- Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, announced today that their Pravail Availability Protection System has been named Gold winner in the Security Hardware category at the 2013 Golden Bridge Awards.

The Golden Bridge Awards are an annual industry and peers recognition program honoring Best Companies of all types and sizes in North America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific and Latin America.

"Enterprises are beginning to understand that preferred DDoS protection includes an on-premise component together with cloud-based protection to address the full spectrum of DDoS attacks today," said Arbor Networks President Colin Doherty. "The Golden Bridge Award is recognition for the team of engineers and developers who deliver world-class products for our customers, some of the most demanding network operators in the world."

Pravail APS 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, Pravail 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, Pravail 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.

According to Infonetics Research's most recent DDoS Prevention Appliances market report published in June 2013, Arbor's Pravail® Availability Protection System is the most broadly deployed enterprise DDoS detection and mitigation solution in the market today.

More than 40 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2013 Golden Bridge Business Awards winners. The winners were honored during the awards dinner and presentation on September 30, 2013, in San Francisco attended by the finalists, industry leaders and judges.
