Arbor acquires eight pending patents

Network security company Arbor Networks announced on Tuesday that the company had bought the rights for eight pending patents on technology for preventing denial-of-service attacks. The intellectual property includes spoof detection, packet marking and trace-back technologies, the company said in a statement.

The eight patents, acquired from former Arbor competitor Asta Networks, bring the company's total portfolio to 16 applications.
