Over 259,791 professionals have used IT Central Station research.
Compare the best CDN vendors based on product reviews, ratings, and comparisons.
All reviews and ratings are from real users, validated by our triple authentication process.
The total ranking of a product, represented by the bar length, is based on a weighted aggregate score.
The score is calculated as follows: The product with the highest count in each area gets the highest available score.
(20 points for Reviews; 16 points for Views, Comparisons, and Followers.)
Every other product gets assigned points based on its total in proportion to the #1 product in
that area. For example, if a product has 80% of the number of reviews compared to the product
with the most reviews then the product's score for reviews would be 20% (weighting factor) *
80% = 16. For Average Rating, the maximum score is 32 points awarded linearly based on our
rating scale of 1-10. If a product has fewer than ten reviews, the point contribution
for Average Rating is reduced (one-third reduction in points for products with 5-9 reviews;
two-thirds reduction for products with fewer than five reviews). Reviews that are more than 24 months old,
as well as those written by resellers, are completely excluded from the ranking algorithm.
CloudFlare offers some of the most amazing features when it comes to optimizing websites & for its security for free, and all at the domain level. They were able to truly disrupt the market because prior to them, only enterprises had... more»
As mentioned, it helps me manage DNS records for more than 100 domains with ease. It helps in web page optimization & helps keep the website secure. If it was not for CloudFlare, I would have to hire a dedicated resource to manage all... more»
CloudFlare is an innovative company and certainly the thought leaders in their industry. They're constantly improving their product, releasing new features, partnering with various service providers to offer add-ons. Personally, I think... more»
* I like to see the security. On the site security, I can see which countries have incidents, whether it was a robot attack, a real human user, or non-human user. For this feature, I like it because I can see information quickly without going... more»
When I joined the company, one of our websites was hacked by malware (somebody put it on our website). The website went down for a long time. It took two weeks to clear the server and move everything: all the content, clean it, bring it up,... more»
I am not sure if this application has a policy where you can create your custom policy and run it as our firewall. We should have some ability to also create some custom policy, then run it as a firewall. Maybe it is not relevant, but I think... more»
It’s about transforming a traditional IT company. I'm an HPE channel partner, so we sell solutions to clients. In other words, we don't buy, per se. We offer what HPE offers because HPE is one of our partners. We do use the product ourselves... more»
It speeds up clients' workflow and productivity. Deployment is faster, for example. They can test and build applications. They can build virtual machines, test them and have them deployed in a much shorter period of time. It increases the... more»
I've yet to encounter any serious problems, so it would be hard for me to predict any solutions. As they bring new releases out, they tend to be more user friendly and easier to manage. I hope that they continue to do so. It will be easier to... more»
Incapsula: It has provided heightened visibility and awareness at management level on the actual threat landscape; it paves the way for easier approval for security-related implementations/projects. CloudFlare: It provides free SSL certs that... more»

These are some of the valuable features: * Free 15 year SSL certificates (I used to need to pay for these). * Spam protection to help prevent spam and unnecessary bot traffic. * Edge caching on a CDN. This is nice for WordPress sites. I can... more»
Once a domain's name servers have been pointed to CloudFlare, you never have to worry about DNS propagation. This would be the case, for example, if you wanted to point a domain to a different EC2/digital ocean instance.
In that sense, it's marketing that could use some improvement. It is hard to call your own product a "necessity", but I truly believe that it, or something like it, is a necessity. Without it, you are risking higher costs, more spam, more... more»
The API gives us the ability to remote control our DNS settings. With many platforms, such as PF-Sense integrating with CloudFlare, it’s an invaluable tool for things such as Dynamic DNS, Let’s Encrypt DNS-01 Challenge, or even as a rapid... more»

An Incapsula website configuration instance can be in a "Pending DNS changes" state, where further work is needing to be done by the customer, while website access is otherwise fully functional. While in this state, the PCI Compliance Report... more»
I have used the cache feature of CloudFlare CDN. CloudFlare is very easy to set up for my site domain. It is very easy to maintain. CloudFlare flushes the cache immediately, which is not supported by some of the other CDN networks such as... more»
There are some features missing or might not be visible to me as I am using its free website plan. These features are: * CloudFlare doesn't provide the cache flush history. I.e., I am not able to find out the URL information of those I have... more»
* Provides a very easy DNS management: Allows you to create various sub-domains and A-record management * Handy interface with one-click to switch the service on and off * Global coverage supports the DNS queries with its load balancing... more»

Incapsula delivers a massive improvement to website performance and security in less than 20 minutes, regardless of the CMS. We love it so much that we decided to create a new service around this product, which could result in our largest... more»
I selected CDN77. It is extremely easy to set up and integrate with WordPress and purge files as needed through the control panel. The control panel is nicely laid out and I do not have to hunt for functionality.
I only use this service for this use case. For this, it is absolutely fine. I have not tried any of the other features they offer so I cannot comment on those. If you are a low-use user and not used the minimum credit, it will be lost at end... more»
* DNS setup: Their DNS allows you to move control over DNS from your own server to a third party. This allows you to avoid running DNS locally that might consume resources or become unavailable if something happens with your local DNS server.... more»
None that I can think of at this point. Their enterprise-level DDoS mitigation plans are costly but they are cost effective compared to any on-premises/distributed solutions that can go upwards of high six figures to implement. If a company... more»
The ability to trace each connection, and to have logs to be able to differentiate between a positive and a false-positive intruder action. It is handy to retrieve and download the logs to line up separate actions to identify possible... more»
For example, we host a website for customer in China. Incapsula can help to hide the real origin and provide access control over different pages. And it can protect the website from being attacked. Incapsula provides 7x24 service for... more»
* Customer service: Their customer service sometimes has different responses for similar requests. We sometimes need to explain the issue many times before they understand. Their CS staff is not well trained according to a consistent... more»
Content monitoring is a marvelous feature that I haven't seen in other Web Application Firewalls. It also has a good content filter. We do a lot of penetration testing on our servers, and the Imperva standalone solution for identifying a... more»
They could improve by minimizing false positive results. Although this occurs less with Imperva, we would like to see some further improvements. We have been using this product for last 1 years, it's result is very impressive. But due to the... more»
We are using Incapsula as our web application firewall and for DDoS protection, and it performs really well at its job. Incapsula packs some great features, such as SSL support, content caching and the ability to 'play' with the rules as much... more»
Since this is the very first WAF solution that we evaluated and tried to integrate into our AWS environment, I can't really say that it has improved anything, but the fact is, we never looked the other way.
Incapsula has a built-in monitoring module, but it is a paid feature; I would expect that for the price we pay for the basic service, we would be able to integrate a monitoring solution, even a simple one. In addition to that, Incapsula... more»
IncapRules is one of the most valuable features, as you can create your own security and access control rules on top of your security policy. Using IncapRules we were able to easily block Layer 7 DDoS attacks several times. Real-time... more»
There is no need to have an in-house WAF to manage and maintain. We are now able to bring a new website live within minutes, without false positive alerts. It has Improved user/customer experience and website performance.
The added security is the biggest bonus feature, as our websites are not usually under extreme load but do have highly sensitive data. A good WAF can be difficult enough to configure even without many of the advanced security features that... more»
Our audit experience is made much more simple due to having this solution. It is an answer to many security issues. We have all of the same sites available and audited internally. This extra layer of security helps with the external... more»
It offers single-point DNS management for all of the company’s domains that might be registered with different registrars. Refreshing the site cache is very fast and easy, and the developers mode is also a great feature.
With CDN loads, sometimes we get an error that the host server is unavailable when the connection between CloudFlare and the server timed out. But now, we get the always online page, so the customer hardly notices a problem.
* Extensive cache control like cache purging and cache rule propagation * Availability features * Cross-datacenter solution (active and passive environments) * CDN and DDoS protection with 24/7 support
Automatic failover between primary and secondary sites enables high availability and accelerates disaster recovery. As soon as it detects that the primary site has gone down, it automatically kick-starts our standby data center.
