Arbor Networks adds to its security products portfolio with the purchase of platform and packet inspection technology firm Ellacoya Networks.

An excerpt from

While the combined company will maintain separate products lines, Arbor is aiming to infuse its network security monitoring and reporting capabilities into Ellacoya’s platform and Ellacoya’s deep packet inspection technologies will be mixed into Arbor’s products. The end goal is dish up technology that can detect and address a range of network-based attacks from the core of an ISP’s network to the edge of the broadband service.

The acquisition will boost Arbor’s portfolio of products for security monitoring and reporting.
