Most Helpful Review
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We also use it by serving our customers' cloud signaling services with on-premise APS devices."
"It's very flexible and we can easily deploy it to our network. It's very user-friendly. We can do everything via the web interface and troubleshoot easily from the CLI. It's not complicated."
"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."
"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."
"There are a number of valuable features in this product, like Cloud Signaling and Threat Intelligence feeds."
"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."
"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."
"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."
"One of the valuable features is its ability to detect new threats."
"The most valuable feature was the EDR, endpoint detection and response."
"The most valuable feature is the protection and the way it works, the technology is what I like the most."
"The solution is very good because it catches a lot of threats in emails."
"he solution's GUI is good."
"The technical support is very good."
"What I find most valuable, is that it is easy to use."
"The analysis engine is a very valuable feature."
"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."
"I think the diversity of protection is extremely limited. It must be expanded in future upgrades and versions."
"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."
"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."
"The following areas need improvement: opening and tracking support tickets, online support resources, software upgrades/updates and replacement media, and event management guidelines."
"On the main page there are alerts that we are unable to clear, even though the issue has been resolved."
"There is definitely room for improvement in third-party intelligence and integrations."
"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."
"The product is good but it could be speedier. In addition, it's quite complex."
"In the next release, I would like to see machine learning and anti-exploitation included."
"The licensing can be very confusing. It needs to be simplified."
"The response time from technical support should be improved."
"At least once a week we have a false alarm. This needs to be adjusted so that we get fewer of these occurrences."
"Most people are confused about how to use the right integration of the right Fortinet product."
"Something that needs to improve, is the end-point protection."
"Product could include a user interface and be made simpler for customers to configure."
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."
"There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees."
"There are additional costs, which isn't included in the licensing fee."
"The solution is not expensive at all."
"Altogether, it is about €10,000 for the Sandbox and Email Gateway."
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.

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.
Today’s threats are increasingly sophisticated and often bypass traditional malware security by masking their malicious activity. A sandbox augments your security architecture by validating threats in a separate, secure environment. FortiSandbox offers a powerful combination of advanced detection, automated mitigation, actionable insight, and flexible deployment to stop targeted attacks and subsequent data loss. It's also a key component of our Advanced Threat Protection solution.
