You should not be looking at Cisco, McAfee, or Tippingpoint (or, as some
have suggested, Sourcefire or Fortinet). None of them specializes in
DoS attacks, and all will give you fairly poor results if that's your
main concern. This is not to say that these aren't great products when
used as designed; it's just to point out that none of them are designed
to be very good at DoS protections. I'm sure that the sales droids are
happy to tell you that they're good DoS boxes but, as you found out,
they aren't.

You want to look at products that focus on DoS (and other rate-based
attacks), probably starting with TopLayer and Arbor (someone else
already suggested that), but also Mazu (now part of Riverbed). There
are also some smaller companies that have had success in this space.
For example, one of our customers bought a DoS mitigation box from
Riorey (http://www.riorey.com/) and they think it's the bees knees.
