News | 23.02.2023

Security Today selected NETSCOUT’s Omnis Arbor Edge Defense as a winner of the 2022 CyberSecured Award in the category of Network Security. Omnis Arbor Edge Defense (AED) was recognized for its ability to stop both inbound and outbound threats, allowing this powerful solution to act as the first and last line of defense for security-minded organizations.

Omnis AED works via deployment between the firewall and internet router, where it is able to see all network traffic. Using state-of-the-art, highly scalable stateless packet processing technology, Omnis AED provides a network edge threat intelligence enforcement point, tasked with blocking inbound cyberthreats such as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks and other indicators of compromise (IOCs) as well as any outbound malicious communications.

This solution is particularly robust because it relies on continuous reputation-based threat intelligence received from NETSCOUT's Omnis ATLAS Intelligence Feed. This feed is a unique data repository that provides unmatched visibility into 190-plus countries, 500-plus industry verticals, 50,000 autonomous system numbers, global botnet activity, and more than 10 million DDoS attacks per year. This unprecedented level of visibility is instrumental to enabling automatic detection of threats, empowering security teams to better protect vital networks and assets.

The CyberSecured Awards honor the outstanding product development achievements of manufacturers and suppliers whose products or services are considered particularly noteworthy in the transformation of cybersecurity.

Omnis AED’s award win is a direct reflection of the industry-leading nature of this solution and NETSCOUT’s unwavering commitment to meeting the evolving security needs of businesses around the globe.
