Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "The solution is a bit costly if you're a small organization, but I think it's worth the price that they are charging."
  • "Arbor DDoS is quite expensive, but all these solutions are expensive because they deal with confidential information."
  • "We do not use the Arbor Cloud DDoS solution because it is too costly."
  • "You need to find a way to get a good offering from Arbor by negotiating a price. That is the challenge."
  • "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."
  • "The licensing of a complete Arbor solution, including fire-walling and unified site management, can get expensive."
  • "The price of this solution is a little high in the African market, it should be lower."
  • "The price is a little high."

    Questions from the Community
    Top Answer:I would say if it’s an ISP that will build a scrubbing center, Netscout/Arbor is a good solution. In all other solutions, Imperva is a great choice.
    Top Answer: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.
    Top Answer:The stateless device format means that the box is very strong for preventing DDoS attacks.

    Overview

    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.

    • Worldwide scrubbing centers: Arbor DDoS offers comprehensive protection from the largest DDoS attacks.
    • Cloud Only and/or Hybrid Protection: The solution provides the flexibility to design comprehensive DDoS protection that fits your specific environment. It can be deployed as a cloud-only and/or an intelligent combination of in-cloud and on-premise DDoS protection.
    • Global Threat Intelligence: Arbor DDoS protection is continuously armed with the latest global threat intelligence from Netscout’s response team.
    • Automated DDoS Attack Detection and Mitigation: DDoS attacks can be automatically detected and routed to Arbor Cloud global scrubbing centers for mitigation.
    • Managed Services: To manage and optimize your on-premise DDoS protection, you can rely upon the industry-leading expertise of Arbor Networks.

    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

    “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." - Erik N., Product Manager, MSx Security Services at TPx Communications

    Today’s Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks are growing in size, frequency and complexity. No enterprise is immune to these threats. Application availability, website uptime and infrastructure accessibility are all critical for business continuity. Every minute of downtime can result in lost productivity and revenue. Scrubbing center mitigation techniques alone are not designed to manage today’s massive, highly sophisticated and distributed attacks. To defend against a variety of attack types, it’s essential to deploy a multi-layered security approach backed by extensive threat research. CenturyLink provides layers of defense through enhanced network routing, rate limiting and filtering that can be paired with advanced network-based detection and mitigation scrubbing center solutions. Our mitigation approach is informed by threat intelligence derived from visibility across our global infrastructure and data correlation. Tailored for any business and IT/security budget, our flexible managed service can proactively detect and mitigate the threats of today to help ensure business-as-usual for employees, partners and customers.
