What is most valuable?

* iRules * Simplicity I was able to simply and quickly set up the WAF rules and security, and also set up easily complex policies and rules which gave me some great features to redirect. So, I had to… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The ability to quickly set up. I understood it very quickly. I had some URLs which pointed to my load balancers, and inside there, I had to send an action to the API Gateway. I thought it was going to… more»

What needs improvement?

People love them in security, but their costs are completely out of bounds. However, I'm not a security guy, so I don't necessarily know all the ins and outs of why our security team may have chosen… more»

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

From a cost perspective, I agreed to analyze the standards in terms of load balancing. However, the cost that they have with AWS are almost prohibitive. I'm being forced to use F5 WAF. I would not… more»

What other advice do I have?

The product works. We have F5 all across our environment. We use them for both VPNs and for traditional load balancers. So, we have VIPRIONs and several different versions of on-premise F5 hardware… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I am a fan of using AWS natively. It is much cheaper. We also looked at Check Point and Barracuda, but they were not markedly cheaper. The whole reason to use AWS was its ability to create resources… more»

What is most valuable?

The next-gen firewall performance is very good. The solution has very good architecture, software, and interface.

How has it helped my organization?

We sometimes need to apply proactive service on specific applications. We can do it with Palo Alto Networks in just a few clicks. On some projects, we work with other vendors like Juniper or Check… more»

What needs improvement?

They could improve the proactive service on this application and application tracking in their next release. Their next release should provide solutions for the mobile environment.

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

Palo Alto is not a cheap product. It's expensive because they provide very good technology.

What other advice do I have?

We had a very good experience with their solutions, especially with their endpoint protections and the next-generation firewalls. We are a local distributor in Palo Alto here in Egypt. So we propose… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Here in Egypt, there are about 93 system integrators and we have a partnership with Fortinet. We consider our connections because we need to avoid conflict with our partners and conflict with other… more»

What is most valuable?

It's a simple and reliable solution. From my point of view as an end-user, it works without any problems and it's easy to use.

What needs improvement?

I have been working with the same interface for the last ten years. I would say that it needs some improvements made. From the perspective of an end-user, It could be more attractive and a graphic interface would be better. It's a problem… more»

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

Sometimes there is a problem with the number of licenses for the end-user. The number of concurrent users is limited due to a valid license.

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

Previously we used CheckPoint Endpoint Remote Access VPN. For a standard end-user, CheckPoint VPN is more complicated. It could be because it has more functions.

What other advice do I have?

I use this product on a day to day basis. Take into consideration the appropriate ratio between the real number of users and the concurrent number of users. That was my experience when I was responsible for the remote working solutions for… more»
