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 most valuable feature is the ability to create signatures on-demand.
All of our traffic has to pass through the appliance, so we can very quickly mitigate the attack. This is a very valuable feature. On top of that, it's not only volumetric attack protection that the solution offers, but also layer 7 attack protection as well.
The DDoS protection that the solution provides is its most valuable feature.
A flexible affordable solution for defense against DDos attacks.
With the secure signature feature, the Radware DefensePro is a big assistance. It is a big help to our customers to improve their productivity and performance. The prompt response from the Radware team is definitely increasing in the new era.
A valuable feature is the speed of signature updates.
SSL-based mitigation from DDoS attacks is good from their side. They are capable of preventing SSL-based attacks with certifications and everything loaded onto them.
It has not gone down for a quite long time. It's working fine.
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.
I would like to see more focus on layer seven protection.
The solution needs a bit more functionality. It would be good if DefensePro could have anti-bot functionalities in order to stop bots like web scrapers from getting onto our customers’ network.
I had some trouble in the registration account prior to deployment, but it was fixed. They were not very fast or responsive, however. It took about one week to resolve the issue.
It could incorporate more intelligence for reacting with web site visitors.
Radware DefensePro requires a continuous learning process. Using this technology, we can improve our network. Based on the different attack mechanisms, we use Radware DefensePro to provide security for our clients' networks very effectively.
If they would go to a cloud-based approach, that would give much more flexibility in terms of working with them.
They should add artificial intelligence to the platform. It is currently missing the machine learning piece.
I would like to see better implementation of a zero-day attack implementation strategy with self-mitigation.
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 Radware DefensePro was bundled together with our security platform.
It is sort of middle-of-the-road for this type of solution.
The product's pricing is a good value.
The cost for maintenance is cheaper because the majority of the deployments using the solution are in areas where cost of maintenance is also lower.
Licensing of Radware is quite simple and straightforward, while Arbor DDos is a bit complicated.
