Arbor DDoS Scalability

Usman Khan
Team Lead for DDoS Protection at a comms service provider with 10,001+ employees
If the network is expanding, of course, we would expect to need to add more equipment. We would need to expand our solution. We had two customers from the government which came in, and they are super-important. Their services cannot go down. We had another solution from Arbor called Pravail. We had that installed for those two customers specifically. Their expected traffic is almost 8 MB, and their throughput is 12 MB. Any noise or malformed packets or out-of-sequence packets get filtered by the Pravail Solution. The bigger attacks will be handled by the TMS, the Threat Mitigation System. Scalability is not a problem for Arbor. View full review »

Scalability is pretty good because you have the SP, which is a controller, and you can add TMS's based on your needs. There's a problem when using Arbor, but it's mostly not related to Arbor itself, it's connected to scaling. What happens is, you will design a deployment and, after some time, you find that the deployment is not enough for the throughput of your network. Then you have CPU spikes, memory spikes, and some other issues. View full review »

The scalability is really amazing. That was part of the equation for one particular customer. When they understood how the bandwidth can be shared between different branches of their backbone, that they could really grow by correctly re-routing traffic, they were really happy with the solution.

It's very scalable. It has a central management platform that manages all appliances, so if you have a few sites, you can scale it to other sites with new devices and you can manage them from the central management platform. View full review »

Arbor is good for expansions or forecasts, and helps us as well. Their pre-sales team is very dedicated and focused and they just nominate the POC, who then provides the capability, descriptions and presentations to us. View full review »

The scalability is good. Configuration-wise, an administrator could create issues. But the product itself is good. I have implemented it multiple times in industries like oil and gas, banking, and insurance. View full review »
