Learn to Safeguard Your Network and Protect Your Data Center

Whether you are a large enterprise, e-commerce company or traditional service provider trying to replace diminishing Internet access revenue with outsourced IT services such as email, Web hosting or software as a service (SaaS), your Internet data center (IDC) plays a vital role in the success of your business.

Virtualization, the latest trend for IDCs, was designed to consolidate the sprawling IDC and reduce costs. However, it brings a new level of complexity that raises issues such as outsourcing applications and data security. To make matters worse, traditional security mechanisms such as firewalls and intrusion detection systems (IDSs) were not designed for these virtualized environments and thus are not protecting today’s modern IDCs. In fact, there are known cases where these traditional security systems are the targets of attacks.

Today’s IDC needs a security solution that can simultaneously protect its network infrastructure, IP-based services and data—all of which are vulnerable to attacks or compromise. This white paper outlines the need for additional security around the modern data center and how the Arbor Networks’ Peakflow technology can provide new types of security measures.

Download this white paper today to learn about the three pillars of protection required for the modern IDC. This includes:

  • Pillar 1: Network Infrastructure Protection
  • Pillar 2: Application/Service Protection
  • Pillar 3: Data Protection

Regardless of what your data center is hosting – it’s important to have the right security solutions in place to ensure optimal infrastructure integrity. Find out how the Arbor Networks’ Peakflow product family can help today’s IDC operators overcome new types of security challenges by securing critical network infrastructure, applications/services and data—thereby providing the pillars of protection needed to optimize IDC operations.
