April 23, 2013

RICHMOND HILL, ON, April 23, 2013 /CNW/ – FlexITy Solutions Inc, a
leading Unified Communications and Collaboration solutions provider,
announced today that it has added Arbor Networks, a global provider of network security and management solutions for
enterprise and service provider networks, to its select portfolio of
technology partners.

Founded in 2000, Arbor Networks has focused exclusively on researching,
detecting and mitigating network-based threats. Arbor’s customers
include the vast majority of the world’s service providers and many of
the largest hosting, cloud providers and enterprise networks in use
today. According to the most recent DDoS Prevention Appliance Market
Outlook report from Infonetics Research, Arbor was cited as top
supplier of DDoS prevention solutions overall as well as in the
Carrier, Enterprise and Mobile market segments.  Arbor was recently
recognized as Best Security Company at the 2013 Info Security Products
Guide Awards in San Francisco. Arbor Networks® Enterprise Solution Arbor’s Pravail enterprise solutions addresses a broad array of
threats, including DDoS, malware, botnets, advanced and insider and
BYOD challenges.

Arbor’s Pravail APS represents a new type of on-premise security
solution, focused on helping to secure the enterprise perimeter from
threats to the availability of a business’ applications and services –
in essence, its livelihood. Pravail APS specifically helps protect
against application-layer distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks,
and was built to stop attacks promptly without upfront configuration or
any user interaction. It delivers DDoS attack identification and
mitigation capabilities that can be rapidly deployed, even during an
attack. Enterprises can also integrate Pravail APS upstream with their
service providers’ DDoS protection services to help stop volumetric
DDoS attacks.

Pravail NSI monitors network traffic data and uses advanced analytics to
help organizations close the security gaps left by firewalls and
intrusion prevention systems (IPS). It looks inside the network and
delivers the situational awareness required to identify advanced
threats, internal network misuse or abuse, and also infected mobile
devices connected to the network. With Pravail NSI, Arbor has created a
platform for delivering the actionable security intelligence that is
critical for identifying and stopping attacks.

“We partner with companies around the world that share our passion for
helping customers grow and protect their networks, businesses and
brand. We have that in our partnership with FlexITy,” said Bill Lipsin,
Vice President, Partners and Alliances at Arbor Networks. “By
partnering with us, FlexITy has access to world-class solutions that
address a wide range of threats from DDoS to insider and advanced
