Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
We can reduce the bandwidth to minimize the attack level. If we see more than 2.5 GBs we drop it directly.
In the GUI, the packet capture is a very good option, as is the option to block an IP address.
It provides packet capture and we can block or whitelist whichever IPs we need to. Whatever traffic we want to block - and we get IPs from internal teams and from national teams - we block at the Arbor level only, because if it gets to the firewall then firewall bandwidth will be taken.
Valuable features include simple and centralized management of user access and capabilities, as well as Web 2.0 interactive attack alerting, traffic visualization, and mitigation service control.
Our customers are very happy when we provide them with the interface... They can check how many attacks they have faced and how many attacks have been blocked.
There are a number of valuable features in this product, like Cloud Signaling and Threat Intelligence feeds.
Arbor has a global ranking in reliability and credibility. They are very unique and can respond to a very wide scope of threats from their global deployment.
It's just one dashboard with mitigation. You decide which mitigation you want and at what threshold to do this or that. Its operation is pretty simple. It's easy.
The initial setup is straightforward.
The analysis engine is a very valuable feature.
What I find most valuable, is that it is easy to use.
The technical support is very good.
he solution's GUI is good.
The solution is very good because it catches a lot of threats in emails.
The most valuable feature is the protection and the way it works, the technology is what I like the most.
The most valuable feature was the EDR, endpoint detection and response.
If we want to see live traffic, we can see do so. But once an attack that lasts for five minutes is done, the data is no longer there. It would be an improvement if we could see recent traffic in the dashboard. We can check and download live traffic, but a past attack, with all the details, such as why it happened and how to mitigate and prevent such future attacks, would be helpful to see.
There is definitely room for improvement in third-party intelligence and integrations.
On the main page there are alerts that we are unable to clear, even though the issue has been resolved.
The following areas need improvement: opening and tracking support tickets, online support resources, software upgrades/updates and replacement media, and event management guidelines.
Because we had some routers that were somewhat old, they were not integrated with Arbor. They did not support the NetFlow version that Arbor was running. That was a challenge. We had to upgrade the routers. Some backward-compatibility would be helpful.
Sometimes it blocks legitimate traffic. If a legitimate user is trying to access the server continuously, the product suspects that this is a DoS traffic file. That is a case where it needs to improve. It needs machine-learning.
I think the diversity of protection is extremely limited. It must be expanded in future upgrades and versions.
For troubleshooting problems, it's not so intuitive. It's not straightforward. This is the core of their kernel, so they need to improve it a little bit... In F5 I have full control of everything.
The integration is limited. The solution needs to offer better integration with multiple vendors.
Product could include a user interface and be made simpler for customers to configure.
Something that needs to improve, is the end-point protection.
Most people are confused about how to use the right integration of the right Fortinet product.
At least once a week we have a false alarm. This needs to be adjusted so that we get fewer of these occurrences.
The response time from technical support should be improved.
The licensing can be very confusing. It needs to be simplified.
In the next release, I would like to see machine learning and anti-exploitation included.
Pricing and Cost Advice
Pricing is slightly on the higher side.
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.
Arbor's products are very expensive. Their competitors are cheap when compared with Arbor.
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.
Because the solutions from competitors are very different, it's not easy to compare. However, the licensing from Arbor is clear and understandable and the pricing is reasonable when looking at the market, in general.
The solution is not expensive at all.
There are additional costs, which isn't included in the licensing fee.
There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.
