Radware DefensePro Review

Simple to install and the ability to create signatures on-demand is helpful

What is our primary use case?

The primary use of Radware DefensePro is to protect against DDoS attacks.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the ability to create signatures on-demand.

What needs improvement?

Better integration with the automated incident response platform, and the ecosystem in general, would be an improvement. Everything should be automated and seamless.

I would like to see more focus on layer seven protection. This is the application layer. 

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Radware DefensePro for two years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

We have not noticed any bugs or glitches when using DefensePro.

This solution is used on a daily basis.

How are customer service and technical support?

We have not been in contact with technical support for issues other than during setup and deployment. In those cases they were helpful.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did not use another solution prior to this one.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is simple. The deployment should take no more than one or two days. There are sometimes challenges during the implementation, which is why it takes this long to complete. The support from Radware is very helpful.

What about the implementation team?

We normally use an integrator to assist us with deployment.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The Radware DefensePro was bundled together with our security platform.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We evaluated other solutions including one by F5.

What other advice do I have?

Normally we do not use the latest version of an application, but one version back, which is the case with this product.

This is a solution that I recommend. 

I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Hybrid Cloud
