Performs great at protecting our customers against attacks

What is our primary use case?

Our business is to provide a DDoS protection solution for our customers. Our customers are banks, financial groups, etc. We might develop some DDoS protection services for our customers under our Internet umbrella. We detect and filter traffic using Arbor DDoS in our network. We use it as a BGP or prompt, as a telecom service provider. We have SP and TMS, and that is all our architecture. We resell on-premise the Arbor edition and install at our customers' site, specifically the Availability Protection System (APS) system.

Pros and Cons

  • "There were huge attacks in October, around 62 attacks at 30 gigabits per second, at one of our banks. We used Arbor DDoS to mitigate these attacks, and it performed great."
  • "We need a SaaS model for the solution."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend using Arbor DDoS. We will buy the next version on virtual machines. We will buy a server separately with the on-premise solution, then install it on our servers where it would be virtual. We have been thinking about creating our own DDoS solution using firewalls from other vendors. We are looking to buy two distributed servers this year that we will need to test locally. I would rate this solution as an eight (out of 10). Arbor DDoS is a stable solution that fulfills our requirements for DDoS protection services.
