"We chose this solution in the first place because it has access to Layer 7. I can control the requests and the content, which I can access on my network if I want to even if it's forbidden access to other external resources. If I want to monitor, for example, traffic, and apply this rule on Layer 7, I can do so. This was our main goal when implementing this application. We wanted to take advantage of the Gateway capabilities.""The simplicity of the solution and its ability to integrate easily with others are its most valuable aspects.""This is a SaaS product, so it is always up to date.""Good customization; able to report and take action on alerts.""The solution was very easy to configure. It wasn't hard at all to adjust it to our needs.""Load balancing and web application firewall features are the most valuable."

Cons
"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."

"The pricing of the solution is a bit high. The solution should offer different pricing systems.""The pricing of the solution could be improved. Right now, it's a bit expensive.""For the first-time user, it is difficult to understand so the user-interface needs to be improved.""Needs easier integration with the existing SIAM.""The security of the product could be adjusted.""It does not have the flexibility for using public IPs in version 2."
