Cons
"There are some issues with pushing configurations across a network. It still takes about 20 minutes and that means to retract it's another 20 minutes.""The WAF features definitely have a lot of room for improvement. A lot of the WAF is really basic. For some products or some of our solutions, we need to run a second layer of more advanced WAF. If it had better layer seven protection then we would not need a second WAF.""The interface is a little bit clunky and can be improved.""Could integrate more features for each security."

"The GUI needs to be improved. Right now, the solution isn't so user-friendly.""Support is very important because if we get good support, we'll be able to sell and supply more numbers."
