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."
"The most valuable feature is that I can establish different services from the firewall."
"The most valuable feature is that there is a link in the system that will help to analyze the security of an application when something abnormal is found."
"WAF is useful to track mitigation, inclusion, prevention, and the parametric firewall."
"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."
"The configuration needs to be more flexible because it is difficult to do things that are outside of the ordinary."
"Setting policies and parameters through the UI should be more automated because the process is manual, where we can only edit one rule at a time."
"It's challenging if you need to go for a high throughput."
"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 licensing fees for this solution are pretty expensive for what it does, but there is no alternative."
"Our licensing costs are about $40,000 a year."
