Dubai, UAE, United Arab Emirates, 2014/08/18 - The Common Criteria certification ensures the trustworthiness of information technology security products and is an important third-party validation for Arbor Networks' solution - ArborNetworks.com.
Arbor Networks, Inc., a leading provider of DDoS and advanced threat protection solutions for enterprise and service provider networks, today announced that the Pravail Availability Protection System has earned the Common Criteria Evaluation Assurance Level 2 (EAL 2) certification.

Evaluations involve formal rigorous analysis and testing to examine security aspects of a product or system. Extensive testing activities involve a broad and formally repeatable process, confirming that the security product functions as claimed by the manufacturer. Security weaknesses and potential vulnerabilities are specifically examined during an evaluation.
“This is an important third-party validation for the Pravail Availability Protection System,” said Matthew Moynahan, Arbor Networks President. “This certification involved rigorous evaluation and testing, the results of which show just how reliable our technology is. This product is playing a critical role in ensuring the availability of the world’s most complex and valuable network infrastructure, including some of the largest government, enterprise and financial institutions in the world.”

Arbor Networks' customers include many of the world's ISPs and many of the largest enterprise networks in use today. According to a report published in June 2014 from Infonetics Research titled, DDoS Prevention Appliance Market Outlook, Arbor’s Pravail Availability Protection System is the most broadly deployed enterprise DDoS detection and mitigation solution in the market today.
