Quotes From Members

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

Pros
"The most valuable feature is the DDoS protection, which is the main reason we got it.""The CDN and the WAF features are the best.""The solution can scale extremely well.""The features are powerful and better than F5.""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 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."

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

"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.""You need to have pretty good internal knowledge of the solution."
