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 security, making sure that files are protected, preventing unauthorized users from accessing the system.""The most valuable feature is the way it blocks threats to external applications.""It's simple, easy to use.""It is a one-click WAF with no effort needed.""It is Amazon. Everything is scalable. It is beyond what we need.""The customized billing is the most valuable feature.""The initial setup was very straightforward. Deployment took about ten minutes or less.""The ability to take multiple data sets and match those data sets together is the solution's most valuable feature. The data lake that comes with it is very useful because that allows us to match data sets with different configurations that we wouldn't normally be able to match."

"The initial setup was straightforward. Straight forward because the plugin can simply be installed and then it does its job. It's not complex, there is no learning curve. The online scan is simple, you put in the website address and the scan gives us a report on the browser itself. It's simple to use."

Cons
"They have to do more to improve, to innovate more features. They need to increase the security. It has to be more active in detecting threats.""In a future release I would like to see automation. There's no interaction between the applications and that makes it tedious. We have to do the preparation all over again for each of our other applications.""The user experience, the interface, is lacking. Sometimes it's hard to find certain areas that it has alerted on.""We need more support as we go global.""In a future release of this solution, I would like to see additional management features to make things simpler.""They should work to define more threats, add more security, and make it more compliant with more security companies.""The solution is cloud-based, and therefore the billing model that comes with it could be more intuitive, in my opinion. It's very easy to not fully understand how you tag things for billing and then you can quite easily run up a high bill without realizing it. The solution needs to be more intuitive around the tagging system, which enables the billing. Right now, I have a cloud architect that does that on our behalf and it isn't something that a business user could use because it still requires quite a lot of technical knowledge to do effectively.""For now, there is no feature to protect against attack of the bad bots"

"I would rate this solution an eight out of ten. The reason is that we have found sometimes customers or Google saying that there is something wrong with the website but Sucuri says that the site is clean so we do have to look at the site manually which means that the Sucuri scan does not pick up anything and everything."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's an annual subscription.""There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""There are different scale options available for WAF.""AWS is not that costly by comparison. They are maybe close to $40 per month. I think it was between $29 or $39.""It has a variable pricing scheme.""We are kind of doing a POC comparison to see what works best. Pricing-wise, AWS is one of the most attractive ones. It is fairly cheap, and we like the pricing part. We're trying to see what makes more sense operation-wise, license-wise, and pricing-wise."
