Dealing With Sunrise / Sunset Glare?

Sunrise and sunset are particularly challenging times for surveillance cameras as very high light levels are concentrated in a narrow beam, like so:

The question becomes: What's the best way of dealing with that?

I only recall doing one test scenario for this, in a 2011 WDR shootout. Here's a comparison:

Obviously lens flare was a big deal for a number of cameras. Addiitonally, WDR likely helped (e.g., the CH140) but still the problem was significant.

Anything you do or would recommend for sunrise or sunset glare?
