We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The work balancing applications are the most valuable feature."
"The stability is good. If there is a problem, the load will be shifted to other sites automatically, which has been a good experience for us."
"It is easier to configure and develop documentation to see how we have configured firewalls."
"The most valuable feature is the web application firewall."
"The solution is very good at mitigating threats."
"New and innovative way to protect the client's data."
"It's very user-friendly."
"The DDoS protection is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"There are key things that are used for our enterprise customers, such as Lambda and DNS."
"From what I've seen so far, there are no negatives to report as of yet"
"The product could be improved by making it easier to use and easier to implement."
"The reporting is not so good. They don't have an application to connect the logs."
"It should have easier documentation for the configuration. It's very technical and people who aren't technical should also be able to do the configuration."
"There should be a specific price list for enterprise-level customers."
"The solution could use more analytics on the backend to give us more insights into everything. More reports would be helpful."
"Technical support is lacking."
"There are some issues with the CDN services."
"The solution could work at being less expensive. It costs a lot to use it."
"Latencies are always a problem."
"Although I think it's quite good, it doesn't provide me with all the features I would expect to have if I were using Imperva."
"We have all the features and functions of Citrix because we have a premium license."
"For partners, NetScaler is not as expensive price-wise versus F5."
"The cost primarily depends on the size of the organization."
"We don't have any issues with the price."
"The price is reasonable."
