We performed a comparison between Arbor DDoS and Cloudflare based on real PeerSpot user reviews.
Find out in this report how the two Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) Protection solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"It is fully mitigating the attacks. We've dealt with other ones where we didn't necessarily see that. The detection is very good. It's also very simple to use. Arbor is a single pane of glass, whereas with other solutions you might have a detection pane of glass and then have to go to a separate interface to deal with the mitigation. That single pane of glass makes it much simpler."
"We have taken on the Arbor Cloud subscription, which is really useful because you secure yourself for anything beyond your current mitigation capacity. This is a really good feature of Arbor that is available."
"The most valuable feature is mitigation, which can blackhole the IP."
"The technical support of Arbor DDoS is good."
"The most valuable features include the traffic categorization and control of the traffic. The filtering of the traffic is very precise. When you want to stop some traffic, you precisely stop that traffic."
"The solution provides good protection against volumetric DDoS attacks."
"The stability is okay and we have not encountered problems with the solution."
"The artificial intelligence feature is most appreciated. This solution can lower the throughput and clear the traffic, which is something really important for us. It also provides good protection. It is user-friendly, and its integration has also been really fast. We have many critical applications, and it was easy to integrate Arbor DDoS with our website, mobile application, and web banking."
"The DDoS protection is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"There are key things that are used for our enterprise customers, such as Lambda and DNS."
"It's very user-friendly."
"From what I've seen so far, there are no negatives to report as of yet"
"An improvement would be to provide information on how pricing is done on different customer levels."
"The regional support here in African could improve, such as marketing and account managers."
"There is always room for improvement for any product or service. If we can bring in more agility when deploying services, that is definitely a scope which we can work towards. Nowadays, everything is being offered as a service model. It is not that we have to deploy the physical hardware, many things move up to the cloud, or even can be delivered in the VNS form in the customer's environment as well. So, in that space, if we can add more features to make it more seamless for customers to use and make it available through some marketplace, not only at the hyperscalers, but also for any on-prem deployment, that definitely would be a big plus."
"They should improve the reporting section and make it a little bit more detailed. I would like to have much better and more detailed reports."
"The solution could be more granular to include logs per second and enhanced pipeline monitoring for router licenses."
"When it comes to some false positives, we need to tweak the system from time to time. There is room for improvement when it comes to the actual mitigation because of some false positives."
"An issue which needs to be addressed concerns information I received of attacks on the radar and Arbor, allegedly, not taking any action."
"On the application layer, they could have a better distributed traffic flow. They could improve that a bit. For network data it is very effective, but the application layer can be improved."
"The solution could work at being less expensive. It costs a lot to use it."
"Although I think it's quite good, it doesn't provide me with all the features I would expect to have if I were using Imperva."
"There are some issues with the CDN services."
"Latencies are always a problem."
Arbor Networks, the security division of NETSCOUT, is driven to protect the infrastructure and ecosystem of the internet. It is the principle upon which we were founded in 2000; and remains the common thread that runs through all that we do today. Arbor’s approach is rooted in the study of network traffic. Arbor’s suite of visibility, DDoS protection and advanced threat solutions provide customers with a micro view of their network enhanced by a macro view of global internet traffic and emerging threats through our ATLAS infrastructure. Sourced from more than 300 service provider customers, ATLAS delivers intelligence based on insight into approximately 1/3 of global internet traffic. Supported by Arbor’s Security Engineering & Response Team (ASERT), smart workflows and rich user context, Arbor’s network insights help customers see, understand, and solve the most complex and consequential security challenges facing their organizations.
With Arbor DDoS you can automatically identify and stop all types of DDoS attacks and other cyber threats before they impact the availability of business-critical services.
Arbor DDoS is an intelligently automated combination of in-cloud and on-premises DDoS attack protection that is continuously backed by global threat intelligence and expertise.

Reviews from Real Users:
Below are some of the many reasons why PeerSpot users are giving Arbor DDoS an 8 out of 10 rating:
"We use it not only for DDoS detection and protection, but we also use it for traffic analysis and capacity planning as well. We've also been able to extend the use of it to other security measures within our company, the front-line defense, not only for DDoS, but for any kind of scanning malware that may be picked up. It's also used for outbound attacks, which has helped us mitigate those and lower our bandwidth costs.” - Roman L, Sr. Security Engineer at Rackspace
"We have taken on the Arbor Cloud subscription, which is really useful because you secure yourself for anything beyond your current mitigation capacity. This is a really good feature of Arbor that is available.” - Assistant General Manager at a comms service provider
