three6five appointed as first Arbor Networks Select Partner in South Africa

on 29 May, 2015

three6five, a specialist IP networking service integrator, has announced that it has been appointed by Arbor Networks as the first Select Partner in South Africa, specialising in Arbor’s Pravail product suite.

three6five is a value added reseller that provides first-world services to enterprises and carriers in 19 countries across Africa.

“three6five is proud to be Arbor’s first Select Partner in the country,” says Charles Glass, Chief Technical Officer at three6five. “Volumetric DDoS attacks are an unfortunate reality for service providers, are difficult to mitigate and often result in lengthy outages. With Arbor, operators understand the nature of these attacks and are able to take action to mitigate them. Arbor has established a reputation amongst network engineers as an invaluable tool in all aspects of network operations, and we consider Arbor to be the cornerstone of any comprehensive network security strategy.”

According to Chantél Hamman, Arbor Product Manager at Networks Unlimited (Distributor for Arbor Networks in Sub Saharan Africa), three6five has invested heavily in the Arbor partner program to ensure that it certifies as the leading partner in the region.

“three6five’s commitment to the Arbor brand and product is remarkable, and I am confident that it will be more than able to support its focus customers,” she says. “Ten of three6five’s engineers have already attended the ISP/Carrier Specialisation training, and the company’s aim is to certify as an Arbor Premier partner specialising in both the ISP/carrier and DDoS specialisations by the end of 2015.”

Arbor has solutions that specifically address the needs of enterprises, service providers, data centers and cloud operators, all available through the South African reseller channel. Arbor’s Pravail product portfolio has three areas of focus: external protection from DDoS attacks; internal network visibility and threat detection; and security analytics to help isolate and identify malicious activity by rapidly combing through massive amounts of data.
