We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Its visibility and login mechanism are the best parts. In addition to the great visibility it has a great dashboard and an easy to configure graphic user interface, a beautiful GUI."
"The interface and software features are the most valuable aspects of this solution."
"WAF feature replicates the firewall."
"It has a filter available, although we are not currently using it because it is not part of our requirements. But it is a good option and when it becomes part of our requirements we will definitely use it."
"The pricing is quite good."
"The solution is easy to set up."
"The solution was very easy to configure. It wasn't hard at all to adjust it to our needs."
"The most valuable feature is WAF."
"This is a SaaS product, so it is always up to date."
"Some of the key features of this solution are the low-level maintenance required, floating proxy service, and load balancing."
"In terms of improvement, the pricing and documentation need improvement. We have had problems getting the documents."
"I did not go with it because their APM module is a different product altogether. It's a common thing that companies do. They sell something and then they add on top of it as a different product. It is a type of marketing strategy. But when it comes to the overall management, it takes a lot of time to really look into it."
"For the first-time user, it is difficult to understand so the user-interface needs to be improved."
"The monitoring on the solution could be better."
"Needs easier integration with the existing SIAM."
"It takes a lot of time for a certificate to update in the system. That is a huge drawback, affecting the load-balancing side. And when there are changes to the load balancing, it affects the end-user."
"It does not have the flexibility for using public IPs in version 2."
"The security of the product could be adjusted."
"One of the challenges we faced was the solution does not support any other PCP protocols apart from HTTP and HTTPS."
"Scalability can be an issue."
"With Avi Networks, you can buy a 10-Gig license and, if your primary data center goes down, in the flick of a switch you can move that license to your backup data center and it will generate the traffic... there are a lot of cost-effective measures."
"Between v1 and v2, there is a lot of change in the pricing. It is very costly compared to AWS."
"It is not expensive."
"Every solution comes with a license and cost. Microsoft provides the license and the total cost is for the maintenance every year."
