Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"The most valuable features include the traffic categorization and control of the traffic. The filtering of the traffic is very precise. When you want to stop some traffic, you precisely stop that traffic.""We have taken on the Arbor Cloud subscription, which is really useful because you secure yourself for anything beyond your current mitigation capacity. This is a really good feature of Arbor that is available.""The stability is okay and we have not encountered problems with the solution.""There were huge attacks in October, around 62 attacks at 30 gigabits per second, at one of our banks. We used Arbor DDoS to mitigate these attacks, and it performed great.""We use it not only for DDoS detection and protection, but we also use it for traffic analysis and capacity planning as well. We've also been able to extend the use of it to other security measures within our company, the front-line defense, not only for DDoS, but for any kind of scanning malware that may be picked up. It's also used for outbound attacks, which has helped us mitigate those and lower our bandwidth costs...""The artificial intelligence feature is most appreciated. This solution can lower the throughput and clear the traffic, which is something really important for us. It also provides good protection. It is user-friendly, and its integration has also been really fast. We have many critical applications, and it was easy to integrate Arbor DDoS with our website, mobile application, and web banking.""Arbor DDoS is easy to use, provides effective blocking of DDoS attacks, and can be used for DNS, web, and main servers. Additionally, this solution is far easier to operate than others solutions, such as Fortinet DDoS.""The auto-mitigation, that signaling feature, where it automatically raises an alarm that a line is under attack, is important. The upstream service provider will then do something to reduce the load on our internet lines. The fact that it's automated means I don't have to sit and always be looking at threats coming through. It does it almost automatically, without any intervention by me."

"The reporting is very good and provides us with a comprehensive description of where attacks are emanating from.""The pricing is reasonable. It's not overly expensive.""The most valuable feature is the ability to create signatures on-demand.""The product integrates well with Cisco.""They have a hybrid model approach if a client wants to go that way.""It has kept us up and operational on a day-to-day basis, without being interrupted by an attack from outside sources."

Cons
"The regional support here in African could improve, such as marketing and account managers.""We need a SaaS model for the solution.""An issue which needs to be addressed concerns information I received of attacks on the radar and Arbor, allegedly, not taking any action.""When it comes to some false positives, we need to tweak the system from time to time. There is room for improvement when it comes to the actual mitigation because of some false positives.""The upgrade process is mildly complex requiring treatment of the custom embedded OS separately from the application. The correlation of the underling OS to the application version can be easily missed.""Implementation could be better.""On the application layer, they could have a better distributed traffic flow. They could improve that a bit. For network data it is very effective, but the application layer can be improved.""I would also like more visibility into their bad actor feeds, their fingerprint feeds. We try to be good stewards of the internet, so if there are attacks, or bad actors within our networks, if there were an easier way for us to find them, we could stop them from doing their malicious activity, and at the same time save money."

"This product would be improved if ongoing live monitoring with dashboards were added.""The solution is a little more pricey than other options on the market.""The dashboard could be updated.""There needs to be more reporting.""I would like to see more focus on layer seven protection.""This solution may not cover all of the requirements in situations for which I am unfamiliar, and there is always room for improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We do not use the Arbor Cloud DDoS solution because it is too costly.""There is room for improvement with the pricing. It is an expensive solution. The issue with the pricing is more the way it is built. Right now we're paying per router, and there's a limitation there. I would like to see bundle-pricing where there is an overall solution cost.""The solution is a bit costly if you're a small organization, but I think it's worth the price that they are charging.""The price of this solution is a little high in the African market, it should be lower.""You need to find a way to get a good offering from Arbor by negotiating a price. That is the challenge.""Arbor is striking a good balance between pricing and what they deliver.""The licensing of a complete Arbor solution, including fire-walling and unified site management, can get expensive.""Arbor DDoS is quite expensive, but all these solutions are expensive because they deal with confidential information."

More Arbor DDoS Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing is based on the amount of network traffic and the number of packets being inspected.""The price was well over six figures.""The Radware DefensePro was bundled together with our security platform.""The initial cost is over $100,000 for one appliance."

Overview

Arbor Networks, the security division of NETSCOUT, is driven to protect the infrastructure and ecosystem of the internet. It is the principle upon which we were founded in 2000; and remains the common thread that runs through all that we do today. Arbor’s approach is rooted in the study of network traffic. Arbor’s suite of visibility, DDoS protection and advanced threat solutions provide customers with a micro view of their network enhanced by a macro view of global internet traffic and emerging threats through our ATLAS infrastructure. Sourced from more than 300 service provider customers, ATLAS delivers intelligence based on insight into approximately 1/3 of global internet traffic. Supported by Arbor’s Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT), smart workflows and rich user context, Arbor’s network insights help customers see, understand and solve the most complex and consequential security challenges facing their organizations.

DefensePro is a real-time, perimeter attack mitigation device that secures organizations against emerging network and applications threats.

Part of Radware’s attack mitigation solution, DefensePro protects the infrastructure against network and application downtime (or slow time), application vulnerability exploitation, malware spread, network anomalies, information theft and other types of attacks.
