ATLAS (Arbor Threat Level Analysis System) is Arbor Network's network monitoring product. It takes global traffic and routing  information supplied by major internet service providers worldwide to monitor and provide actionable intelligence regarding threats to the network infrastructure and the services that run on it. This information is made available to customers via a security portal that visually displays threats and provides up-to-date information regarding those threats and how to mitigate them. ATLAS also provides protection against DDoS attacks before they are able to threaten networks via its Peakflow product.
