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

"Provides mobile app security.""I very much like the elastic search and reports, allowing us to have a 360-degree view of the customer's activities and enabling us to track down any suspicious bots."

Cons
"It would be better if there weren't any issues with latency. We had latency issues, but I think they are all solved now.""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.""Support and the pricing need to improve."

"Some of the settings on the dashboard are confusing.""The WAF features are not as granular as we would expect from a WAF system. There should be more granularity and in-depth rules, out-of-the-box."

More Reblaze Cons »

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."
