NETSCOUT’s Arbor Insight Leverages ASI Technology to Enhance Security

NETSCOUT SYSTEMS INC., a provider of cybersecurity, service assurance and business analytics solutions, introduced Arbor Insight, a technology that when combined with Arbor Sightline enhances and extends threat detection, service delivery and network operator visibility to address the evolving threat landscape.

With DDoS attack traffic exceeding pre-pandemic levels and ISPs presenting a broader threat surface, network operators need unconstrained, multi-dimensional visibility into the traffic running across their networks to optimize their defenses.

The combined solution set of Sightline with Insight leverages ASI, NETSCOUT’s metadata technology, to correlate multiple sources of network telemetry with global intelligence and local configuration to deliver an 80-plus facet record for each monitored network communication.

Arbor Insight provides security and network operations teams with the optimal dataset to perform critical tasks – including time-series analysis of critical traffic dimensions and annotated flow data for in-depth investigations, forensics and retrospective analysis.

Additionally, by using configurable, optimized datasets, Insight delivers access to high-fidelity data with minimal storage and compute requirements, extending the value of existing Sightline deployments.

Insight delivers flexible, multi-dimensional time-series threat and traffic analytics using customizable Advanced Traffic Reports (ATRs). ATRs augment users’ operational workflows with n-dimensional visibility into key areas of interest, facilitating speed-of-thought drill downs and sub-filtering to expose network dynamics such as top attack targets and vectors, top talkers/services/protocols, historical anomalies, threat signatures, and more.

In addition, ATRs maintain the desired data fidelity and granularity, allowing instant response to any query, supporting long- and short-term visibility needs, and optimizing total-cost-of-ownership. These capabilities help network operators tune their defenses, scale their mitigation capabilities and more quickly onboard new service customers – reducing costs and increasing revenue.
