Pricing and Cost Advice
"As far as I know, they are the best in this sector, in DDoS protection. They know it, I know, because their service prices are too high. They provide cloud DDoS protection for ISPs, but that is also too expensive.""Arbor's products are very expensive. Their competitors are cheap when compared with Arbor.""I'm a technical guy. But I know it's expensive compared to its competitors. After you have the on-premise solution, for your solution to be effective you have to subscribe to an "upper level," so there's another cost. There is also a subscription to cloud services, which is another cost.""Pricing is slightly on the higher side.""Arbor is striking a good balance between pricing and what they deliver."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: I would say if it’s an ISP that will build a scrubbing center, Netscout/Arbor is a good solution. In all other solutions, Imperva is a great choice.
Top Answer: Arbor would be the best bid, apart from Arbor, Palo Alto and Fortinet have good solutions. As this is an ISP, I would prefer Arbor.
Top Answer: Arbor has the end to end solution for DDoS protection, while Radware needs to work with their 3rd party partners.
