Etienne WEHRLECDN & Cybersecurity Engineer - Web performance & security at CDN Tech / Ecritel
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable feature of Cloudflare is that it has a free version. They give us the free version with the anti-DDoS features and also the load balancing solution."
"The technical support is good."
"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."
"Fastly uses configuration versioning, where you can deploy a new version in less than one minute."
"If they improve on the placement of their data centers, it would be better. I'm living in a remote area. I would like to connect to them without any kind of lag."
"The product support needs to be accessible from more places, a wider area of coverage."
"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."
"It is missing a "staging" platform to deploy a test configuration with all of the real settings, which would allow us to properly test before putting it into production."
