NetOps and SecOp teams have become bystanders to solutions that continue to miss low volume, socially engineered, and highly-damaging phishing campaigns, but remain vigilant in the goal to become active participants in the mission to identify how to stop phishing attacks across all traffic vectors.
Area 1 Security works to identify phishing campaigns, attacker infrastructure, and attack delivery mechanisms during the earliest stages of an attack cycle, and utilizes Garland Technology’s Network test access points (TAPs) to ensure maximum visibility and reliability for their globally-distributed sensors, massive scale web crawling, and comprehensive pre-attack analytics requirements.
Existing defenses struggle with highly-focused and sophisticated campaigns and users are constantly getting lured into taking phishing baits, leading to significant financial damage or data loss.
Area 1 Security needed to support global deployments and massive scalability requirements of 1G through 100G utilization, supporting the volume and variety of data that each data center received to keep customers ahead of phishing attacks instead of dealing with the consequences of a breach after the fact.
Provide maximum reliability and functionality for globally-distributed sensors, massive scale web crawling, and comprehensive pre-attack analytics requirements.
Garland Technology enabled Area 1 Security to maintain 100% visibility and reliability in the most extreme environments, including large-scale security threats from humans, machines, and natural disasters alike. Thus, complete functionality and comprehensive reliability at their global data centers were the largest determining factors helping their customers stay ahead of these looming cyber-attacks.
Area 1 Security accomplished this by deploying Garland Technology's high quality AggregatorTAPs, allowing them to maintain comprehensive reliability and ensuring complete functionality at their global data centers against recent and large-scale security threats, helping their customers stay ahead of looming cyber-attacks. AggregatorTAPs are used to capture 100% full duplex traffic; the traffic can then be sent to multiple monitor appliances to analyze your network
"After utilizing other similar TAPs, Garland Technology remains second-to-none delivering 100% reliability, pricing, and logistics at full scale.”
- Blake Darche, AREA 1 Security
Area 1 Security now provides 100% accurate False Tolerance analysis, granting a proactive view into early stage DDoS attacks, resulting in Area 1 Security customers being able to take quick action and respond to looming threats. While proactive patterns are critical, the ability for Area 1 Security’s global data centers to obtain and maintain 100% full power with the magnetic failover feature from Garland Technology TAPs, have yielded their only full-scale and 100% reliable network TAP solutions to date.
Area 1 Security continues to turn to Garland Technology for the speed of their global logistics, the unparalleled integration support, capacity planning, and modeling surrounding future deployments.
“Garland Technology triumphs in highly - volatile and critical environments, allowing us to provide visibility into our customers’ formation, and help enterprises take proactive action against cyber-attacks.”
