Arbor Networks Inc., the security division of NETSCOUT (NASDAQ: NTCT), today announced new cloud-based licensing options for its Arbor Networks® SP network visibility platform. These new options unlock significant performance and scalability gains – giving service providers, cloud/hosting providers, large enterprises and other large network operators the ability to flexibly and dynamically expand their Arbor Networks SP deployments in ways that best meet their unique business and infrastructure needs.
For over a decade, Arbor Networks® SP has been the preferred solution large network operators use to understand how traffic is flowing through their networks so they can keep the network and services running, create business insights – not just data – and enable new services. Arbor Networks SP Flexible Licensing (SP Flex) is Arbor’s new cloud-based licensing model that allows customers to quickly and easily expand visibility coverage from their peering points to the backbone to the network edge in an operationally flexible way that accommodates CAPEX- or OPEX-centric business models.
“We strive to ‘think like our customers’ when it comes to all aspects of deploying and using our technology. With these new SP Flex options, we’re providing them with more flexible growth options, increasing their operational agility and lowering their total cost of ownership while delivering industry-leading innovation around network visibility,” said Arbor Networks President Matthew Moynahan.
