The problem with a machine in front of your firewall is that by the time
the DDoS gets to your machine it's too late, your pipe is full and your
just taking some of the weight of off your FW and servers. Your pipe is
still full and nobody can get to your server. You need protection
upstream, so yes, your ISP or a cloud based service.
