We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Arbor is striking a good balance between pricing and what they deliver."
"The solution is a bit costly if you're a small organization, but I think it's worth the price that they are charging."
"Arbor DDoS is quite expensive, but all these solutions are expensive because they deal with confidential information."
"We do not use the Arbor Cloud DDoS solution because it is too costly."
"You need to find a way to get a good offering from Arbor by negotiating a price. That is the challenge."
"There is room for improvement with the pricing. It is an expensive solution. The issue with the pricing is more the way it is built. Right now we're paying per router, and there's a limitation there. I would like to see bundle-pricing where there is an overall solution cost."
"The licensing of a complete Arbor solution, including fire-walling and unified site management, can get expensive."
"The price of this solution is a little high in the African market, it should be lower."
