Arbor DDoS Review

The implementation was done by a vendor team, and they were excellent


What is most valuable?

  • Very user-friendly GUI
  • Simplest way of mitigation
  • Predefined filters/techniques to easily stop the attacks and start mitigation.

How has it helped my organization?

My last project was with the biggest banks of India (almost all of them) and MNC, so it helped us to protect their network from present DoS/DDoS attacks.

What needs improvement?

Auto mitigation is a feature provided when DDoS is observed on any of link/customer (configured under auto mitigation). It automatically starts mitigation with default filters. In default filter mode, there could be an impact on the customer’s link,

E.g., if we have enabled monitoring of internal traffic for that link/customer, it starts mitigation on legitimate traffic. It can also creates looping in the network for any misconfiguration, which can impact the ISP’s internal network and the customer's link utilization.

Two years.
