 It's all nice tools, but any good ideas how to protect against it on the
switch with the vlans?

hard code the MACs to each switch port

always use encryption on the LAN: SSH, OpenVPN, https, smtps, stunnel, etc.

segregate important servers on separate LANs, not just separate VLANs.
(Most switches connect all the VLAns together when you over flow
the switch's MAC table)
