Gen-i joins Arbor Networks Cloud Signalling Coalition
Posted on 17-Jul-2012 10:13 | Tags Filed under: News



Gen-i, a division of Telecom New Zealand Limited, has joined Arbor’s Cloud Signalling Coalition, a partnership between service providers, datacentre operators and enterprises with the mission to ensure the availability of their network infrastructure and speed time-to-mitigation for distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks.

Gen-i provides a wide range of hosted and integrated ICT solutions to business and government organisations, including business continuity, cloud computing, contact centre, collaboration, data centre and mobility services. From a security services perspective, Gen-i believes that enterprises must secure the network perimeter in order take control of IT risk management. Gen-i's Safecom service is a suite of security-focused solutions, providing effective, robust protection for the network perimeter 24 hours a day.

Leanne Buer, Gen-i Head of Networked ICT Products, said, “Gen-i is committed to offering our clients ICT solutions that deliver real business outcomes. Our clients expect these services to be available, reliable and secure 24/7. We are pleased to participate in Arbor’s Cloud Signalling Coalition. Arbor is an important part of our Safecom service and we see the CSC as an important tool that will help us further reduce time-to-mitigation for dynamic threats facing our client networks.”

“The Cloud Signalling system is efficient and integrated, bridging the customer premise to the service provider cloud. Arbor is bringing its decade of DDoS mitigation experience in ISP networks to the enterprise at a time when availability threats are top of mind for network operators,” said Nick Race, Arbor Networks’ country manager for Australia and New Zealand.

Arbor Networks’ 450 customers include the vast majority of the world's ISPs and many of the largest enterprise networks in use today. According to a recent report from Infonetics Research titled, DDoS Prevention Appliance Market Outlook, Arbor Networks was cited as “the dominant leader for DDoS prevention” overall as well as in the Carrier, Enterprise and Mobile market segments.
