How has it helped my organization?

We have suffered from DDOS attacks but that has stopped since we implemented this solution. The only downtime we have now is from our own applications/releases.

What needs improvement?

The web portal for checking status and traffic needs improvements. For example, it's not possible to change the time zone, so all graphs display the wrong time.

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

This was our first provider. We did not have time to to evaluate competitors since we was under attack.

What other advice do I have?

I rate it eight out of 10. It would get a nine if the web portal was better and 10 if the price was lower. We have been using it for three years. We canceled the contract recently and are looking into… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

After the 3 year period, we canceled the expensive contract with Akamai and tested F5 Silverline. Since we use F5 Load Balancers and ASM we thought it would be a good idea to utilize the communication… more »

What is most valuable?

Since they're basically a DDoS protection service, dropping the initial necessary investment for the on-premises DDoS detection and mitigation is the most valuable feature of this solution.

How has it helped my organization?

They've scrubbed DDoS traffic that was blasting us offline, thus allowing legitimate traffic through and letting our service return online.

What needs improvement?

I don't have any particular suggestions here, it does what it's supposed to do. It's expensive, though.

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

Consider how this solution fits into a comprehensive DDsS defense strategy, don't just outsource responsibility to them. Walk, don't fall in. If internal procedures suck and the emergency responders fall over each other in… more »

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

We were not using any other solution. Currently, we are researching about additional on-prem solutions.
