Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"I like that the charges are all based on usage and labor costs. For the time that we spend onboarding almost 252020 FQDN, Akamai charges us only for the traffic usage, but it's only charging us for the labor costs for onboarding.""The most valuable feature is the DDoS protection, which is the main reason we got it.""The solution can scale extremely well.""The CDN and the WAF features are the best.""The features are powerful and better than F5.""The most valuable feature is the custom rules feature. This is because many of our customers require a lot of custom rules. Because it's a very customized project for our customers, I think they have the best of everything already."

"This is a hybrid solution.""It is a good solution. Its vendor support is the most valuable. It is simple and works well if you have Juniper MX routers."

More Corero Pros »

Cons
"Support and the pricing need to improve.""The pricing could be reduced a bit.""Could integrate more features for each security.""They are already very flexible, but room for improvement is there. Reports generation could be better and should be improved.""The interface is a little bit clunky and can be improved.""It would be better if there weren't any issues with latency. We had latency issues, but I think they are all solved now."

"Lacks international presence.""Juniper is known in our country, but it is not very popular. There is also not enough information about Corero. Our enterprise and financial sectors don't know about this solution. They need to provide more information and do more marketing for this solution in our country."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Akamai is very expensive.""There is no license at all for Akamai. They are going to charge us only for the usage.""The price they are offering is quite reasonable for premium customers, but it's very expensive if you're a small and medium-sized enterprises."
