What is your experience regarding pricing and costs for Arbor DDoS?

Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Please share what you can so you can help your peers.

The price of this solution is a little high in the African market, it should be lower.

The licensing of a complete Arbor solution, including fire-walling and unified site management, can get expensive. This is a cost-benefit scenario in which the risk of losing everything must be weighed against the increased expense of the solution. This decision lies with the end customer and it depends on his protection policy. Apparently, taking protective measures is not prevalent in our culture, as people have a tendency to think that they will not be the target of an attack, even though this may be the ultimate result.

You need to find a way to get a good offering from Arbor by negotiating a price. That is the challenge. See if it is possible to scale using the cloud service.

Arbor DDoS is quite expensive, especially for the TMS mitigation part

The solution has a huge price, but we are a global company so we receive global pricing, which is why we chose Arbor. We also receive good prices for Russia. We also bought the Sentinel feature to use its flow spec because we needed to know how much traffic will be mitigated on our borders. We haven't used it yet, but we are planning on using it in the Spring. We found that the combination of the Sentinel feature with Arbor DDoS going forward is the most important feature. We do not use the Arbor Cloud DDoS solution because it is too costly. We decided to make our proprietary cloud solution designed by our company.

The solution is a bit costly if you're on a tight budget, but it's worth the price that they are charging - the ROI is notable in a long run.

You pay for what you get. Like any other consumer product, there are things out there that are extremely cheaper than Arbor, but you're also not going to get the type of information that you do with Arbor. And there are some other companies out there that are a little pricier than Arbor, that are not going to mitigate and give you the type of information that you want. Arbor is striking a good balance between pricing and what they deliver. In terms of costs in addition to their standard licensing fees, it depends. There are other feeds that you can subscribe to. There are different services that they're starting to bundle up with NETSCOUT, that you'll be able to subscribe to. There are some feeds on proactive alerting. Because they have such a big visibility into the global internet network, they're able to see botnets discussing or targeting potential customers of yours, and they can actually make you aware of such. They have different feeds that they get from their security team that help you mitigate DoS attacks without any kind of intrusion on your part. You don't have to make any kind of adjustment to countermeasure. These are pre-configured signatures that they see in the wild and that feed is delivered straight to your mitigation device and can mitigate DoS attacks that common users wouldn't be able to do by themselves. That is great for those who are first taking on the product and getting into taking on DDoS attacks.

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.

Licensing is based on features, I believe.

Pricing is slightly on the higher side.

To be honest, I don't care about numbers. 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. Now we are using Arbor, but in the future, if the price remains expensive, we might PoC the competitors. If we have the budget, we want to use Arbor, but in the future, if we have budget problems we may try other products.

Licensing is good and they are very helpful to us. Without licensing you cannot get the complete features of the product, as well as the complete level of support, so licensing is obviously a good option.

As far as I know, they are very successful in DDoS protection. Because they know it, 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.
