New ATLAS system promises real-time data on security, routing and traffic trends.
Network security vendor Arbor Networks is collaborating with more than 100 ISPs worldwide to create a more comprehensive Internet monitoring system.
The newly enhanced ‘Net monitoring system, dubbed ATLAS 2.0 by Arbor Networks, now monitors and collects real-time data for global Internet traffic, routing and application performance. Previously, Arbor says the ATLAS system had been used mostly to collect data on security-related traffic such as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attack traffic.
Arbor decided to expand its ATLAS system to more general Internet monitoring to help its client ISPs gather more business intelligence on the traffic and application trends that guide service providers’ business decisions.
