Arbor Networks is a software company founded in 2000 and based in Burlington, Massachusetts, United States, which sells network security and network monitoring software, used – according to the company's claims – by over 90% of all Internet service providers. The company's products are used to protect networks from denial-of-service attacks, botnets, computer worms, and efforts to disable network routers. Wikipedia.

A method and system for managing data traffic and protecting computing assets. The method and system includes analyzing HTTP requests to determine if the HTTP requests are overly segmented, and, if the HTTP request is overly segmented, blocking and/or black-listing the malevolent communications and computing device. The analysis to determine if an HTTP request is overly segmented includes comparing the packets size to a threshold, identifying the packets content or lack thereof, identifying whether the packet is the last packet in a communication, and identifying whether the packet ends with the \n ASCII character.

A method and system for managing data traffic and protecting computing assets. The method and system includes intercepting queries and messages, such as EDNS0 queries, and sending probe queries and reply queries to the originating computing device to determine whether the originating computing device may be sufficiently validated so as to justify forwarding resource-intensive queries and messages to the targeted computing device.

A system and method performed by a computing device connected to a network and having one or more processors and memory storing one or more programs for execution by the one or more processors. At least one packet is received over a network. The packet is analyzed to detect predetermined content. The predetermined content is selected if it is determined that the packet contains the predetermined content. Future transmission of any packet containing the predetermined content is prevented in response to selection of the predetermined content.

A system, method and computer readable storage medium that blocks network traffic exceeding a user selected value. Received data packets are analyzed to determine volumetric traffic flow so as to graphical represent the determined volumetric traffic flow for the received data packets on a display device. A countermeasure filter is provided having at least one traffic setting operational to block data packet traffic flow from the one or more external devices when the volumetric data packet flow exceeds a prescribed threshold value. The prescribed threshold value is determined by a user positioned indicator on a display device graphically representing the determined volumetric traffic flow.

A node in a communication network determines a data rate capacity of one or more nodes of the communication network and creates a single managed object grouping for each node of the one or more nodes having a same data rate capacity. The node establishes one or more static thresholds for the single managed object grouping based on the data rate capacity. The static thresholds are independent of a baseline condition of detected data rates at each node of the single managed object grouping. The node further detects a current rate of received data at each node of the single managed grouping and triggers at least one alert for each node of the single managed grouping when the current rate of the received data at a particular node exceeds the one or more static thresholds.
