Arbor Networks acquires security analytics innovator packetloop

Arbor-Networks-logoNew Delhi, India, November 6, 2013: Arbor Networks announced that it has acquired privately held Packetloop, an innovator and leader in the field of security analytics. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. Arbor plans to invest in and expand Packetloop’s Sydney, Australia-based operations.

Packetloop’s solution delivers real-time, network-wide situational awareness through a combination of packet capture, big data analytics, security forensics and visualizations that help enterprises identify malware, targeted attacks and attackers. Packetloop’s capabilities complement Arbor’s market leading NetFlow visibility, anomaly detection, application intelligence and identity tracking. Arbor will integrate Packetloop’s capabilities into its enterprise solution platform this year, delivering a broad, integrated set of network visibility; threat detection and mitigation; incident response; and forensics capabilities that become the foundation of Arbor’s next-generation threat monitoring and mitigation platform.

Arbor Networks President Colin Doherty said, “The Packetloop technology and people are a great addition to the Arbor team. They bring tremendous insight and knowledge in applying security analytics to the advanced threat landscape. They have developed a really innovative and powerful solution that brings context to data, quickly, and in a meaningful way for those who need it.”

Packetloop co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Scott Crane said, “Arbor shares our belief that detection is the key, prevention is the goal and it all starts with great visibility. We also believe that data without context is meaningless. Arbor is a successful and well-established company, yet they still have the heart of a startup, an innovator, a disruptor. They’re continuously pushing the envelope. That type of environment, with their people and technology, is a great fit for Packetloop.”

Research manager for Security Products at IDC John Grady said, “Arbor is building a network security and analytics platform that goes far beyond DDoS detection and mitigation. Adding a big data security analytics and forensics platform like Packetloop’s makes sense as they extend into the broader advanced threat market. Arbor now has a unique combination of NetFlow, packet capture and global threat intelligence from their ATLAS infrastructure to address today’s dynamic threats that evade signature-based solutions.”
