Which is the best DDoS protection solution for a big ISP for monitoring and mitigating?


I have around ten years of experience working as a technical manager for a Telecom company with more than 10,000+ employees. 

We are currently researching DDoS protection solutions. Which is the best DDoS protection solution for a big ISP with more than 1.5 terabytes for monitoring and mitigating? 

Thanks! I appreciate the help.

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.

What type of DDoS protection are you looking for? There are many types of attacks, which vary from volumetric (L3/L4), protocol attacks, and application-layer attacks.

There are also in-band solutions, out-of-band solutions, and hybrid solutions.

I would be happy to discuss in more detail, but I can't suggest a specific vendor/solution without knowing more about the specific customer needs.

I would recommend A10 Networks due that it delivers high performance in a small form factor to reduce OPEX with significantly lower power usage, rack space, and cooling requirements compared to other vendors.

I am a gold partner for A10 Networks. Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact me on d.theron@tracenetops.net.

Cloudflare. We are moving from Akamai prolexic to Cloudflare. Cloudflare anycast network outperforms Akamai static GRE tunnels. We have decreased site load times on Mobile 3G from 8 to 1,6 seconds by moving to Cloudflare and don't have to care about tuning our own WAF and DDOS protection.

My recommendation is Imperva.
