We've already done an initial trial with the Arbor device, and it does 
work well.  Our biggest sticking point with it is that it lacks the 
granular level of visibility and control that we've been used to and 
often needed to tweak profiles.  Basically, it does what it's supposed 
to well, but you really can't tell what that is, and if it's not 
catching all of a DDoS you have little insight as to what's being missed 
or control to correct it.

Thank you,
