This week's podcast features an Australian exclusive -- an interview with Robert Malan. He's the founder and CTO of Arbor Networks, a company that does all sorts of cunning things "in the cloud" to mitigate the effects of DDoS attacks. Take that, Ruskies!

Arbor recently acquired Ellacoya networks. They want to start operating closer to the edge of carrier networks, clamping down further on other bot nets badness through policy enforcement.

This week's podcast is brought to you by McAfee and is hosted, as always, by Vigabyte virtual hosting.

On this week's show:

  • ZDNet Australia's Munir Kotadia discusses the week's news with Patrick Gray
  • Patrick Gray mispronounces Robert Malan's last name several times, then interviews him.
  • Mike Sentonas from McAfee pops in for this week's sponsor interview

NOTE (20/3): After wondering why this week's download numbers were a bit slow, I realised the post didn't actually go into the RSS feed. Argh. Reposted now, two days later. Sorry!
