Overall Satisfaction with Arbor Sightline (formerly Arbor SP)

The first and foremost use of Arbor is in our IT and networking department and it is great to monitor the flow of the traffic across the network and it is the basic problem it is dealing with. It is also assisting us in managing overlay VPNs, and as I have said that it is astounding for monitoring and from monitoring I mean the way it helps us in detecting the problem that occurs in the network. By diagnosing the problem we can prevent it from creating an impact on our business.
  • It provides a real-time monitoring feature.
  • It is amazing in providing us with a thorough report of the traffic and we can analyze traffic.
  • We can manage overlay VPNs and BGPs and it is assisting us a lot.
  • We can detect and look for any potential issue in the hotspots and if the BGP gets hijacked as well it is great for monitoring purposes.
  • Arbor is a highly expensive company. this was the major reason behind not going for the Arbor sightline in the first place. Although its features are good but the cost is unjustifiable.
  • The implementation and the understanding of this tool are full of complexity and perplexity.
  • I am looking forward to having a new update on it. They used to update their versions quite frequently but it's been a long time they haven’t updated or maybe it is not in their priority lists right now.
  • Monitoring network.
  • Network analytics.
  • Reports it provides.
  • Arbor is good in empower us to monitor the issues in the network.
  • We can get better traffic analytics and reports are quite detailed.
  • The price is quite high which makes it a little hard choice for us.
We chose Cisco because we had past experience with some Cisco products and we were ready to invest a high cost for Cisco Secure but unfortunately it didn’t come up to our expectations and left us in despair. The speed, the price and the analytics of Cisco, everything was just average but when we moved to Arbor we came to realize that market still have some good network analytics tool.

Do you think Arbor Sightline delivers good value for the price?

Arbor has the propensity to deal with even the larger firms. I have been using it for a year span and I don’t have any such complaint which is affecting us in a bad way. I can recommend this to all the companies who want to have a good network behavior analysis and to monitor the problems if there is any chance of it to occur and which has the potential to affect the whole working environment of the company.
