Effect local attack handling, intuitive interface, and scalable
We have been using Corero for government customers.  Corero stands out from other market solutions because of its ability to operate within the infrastructure with a latency of one microsecond. It can quickly detect and respond to threats, unlike other approaches that rely on traffic patterns and…

Helps detect attacks in real-time, and is stable, but the cloud scrubbing capabilities need improvement
Radware DefensePro can defend against Layer 3 and Layer 4 DDoS attacks but it is not capable of protecting against Layer 7 attacks. Radware DefensePro suffers from a high false positive rate of 25 percent and occasionally blocks legitimate traffic, requiring manual unblocking. Additionally, it has been known to miss some threats. We have not seen a reduction in downtime associated with attacks by using DefensePro. Radware DefensePro needs to improve its cloud scrubbing capabilities. We have discontinued their cloud services due to poor performance. The inability to access local technical support during our business hours poses a significant inconvenience. This necessitates extra devices for continuous operation until we can speak to their support. We would appreciate the availability of a team within our time zone for optimal service.

Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"It is a good solution. Its vendor support is the most valuable. It is simple and works well if you have Juniper MX routers."
"It is an agnostic and transparent inline platform, which means that the maximum visibility of the symmetric and asymmetric traffic is available, even allowing bidirectional detection of the attack."
"The most valuable feature of Corero is its ability to handle smaller attacks in terms of the amount of volume and time. You can handle almost 100 perfect of the attacks locally."
"SmartWall devices occupy only one-fourth of the width of a rack unit, making them very easy to install."
"The DDoS protection features are valuable."
"This is a hybrid solution."
"Radware DefensePro is one of the best solutions for on-premise protection."
"The dashboard is the best part, and there is also the ease of operations."
"Its functionality is very good."
"It has kept us up and operational on a day-to-day basis, without being interrupted by an attack from outside sources."
"The DDoS protection that the solution provides is its most valuable feature."
"It offers valuable insights into ongoing and past attacks, aiding in post-incident analysis and continuous improvement of our cybersecurity strategy."
"As a service provider, we use the SecOps dashboard feature. That's where we check the time of attacks to see if an attack is happening at the moment or if it has already happened... It is very dynamic and helps us know when an attack occurred, how long it lasted, and what type of attack it was."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to create signatures on-demand."


"Juniper is known in our country, but it is not very popular. There is also not enough information about Corero. Our enterprise and financial sectors don't know about this solution. They need to provide more information and do more marketing for this solution in our country."
"The approach taken by Corero is to partner with other organizations in order to address volumetric attacks that cannot be handled by the hardware installed in the infrastructure. Corero does not have a solution for these attacks, so they are looking for partners to help them manage them. This approach is supplemented by local hardware, but the main focus is on the partnerships. It would be beneficial to have a more complete solution."
"The product must provide more Layer 7 capabilities."
"Lacks international presence."
"It could use support in Spanish."
"This product would be improved if ongoing live monitoring with dashboards were added."
"The inability to access local technical support during our business hours poses a significant inconvenience."
"I had some trouble in the registration account prior to deployment, but it was fixed. They were not very fast or responsive, however. It took about one week to resolve the issue."
"The solution needs a bit more functionality. It would be good if DefensePro could have anti-bot functionalities in order to stop bots like web scrapers from getting onto our customers’ network."
"The solution is a little more pricey than other options on the market."
"I would like to see more focus on layer seven protection."
"This solution may not cover all of the requirements in situations for which I am unfamiliar, and there is always room for improvement."
"There needs to be more reporting."

Pricing and Cost Advice

"The price of Corero is affordable."
"Its price is normal."
"The product's pricing is a good value."
"It is sort of middle-of-the-road for this type of solution."
"Licensing of Radware is quite simple and straightforward, while Arbor DDos is a bit complicated."
"It is expensive. I would rate it a seven out of ten for pricing."
"The price was well over six figures."
"The NetFlow security could be improved too."
"The price varies by use case and there are monthly and annual licensing options. If you deploy on-premise, there is an annual license with the amount dependent on the throughput you need and which features you will be using - i.e. IPS, behavioral, etc."
"The Radware DefensePro was bundled together with our security platform."
