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 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."

More Cloudflare Pros »

"The tool happens to be very intelligent when it comes to processing policies and sounding alerts. It allows us to implement policies and measure actions against them, raising alerts accordingly.""It has a lot of different components that cover the needs of our customers.""The functionality is very useable and easy to understand.""The most valuable feature of this solution is the database security policy.""This solution has helped secure our Internet-based services, protecting us against DoS and other types of web-based attacks.""A solution which does what other name brand products do for a lower cost.""Flexible reporting allows for customization that keeps the admins from having to interact with system automation.""The most valuable feature is the Data Masking."

Cons
"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."

More Cloudflare Cons »

"The only challenge I see is that SecureSphere is deployed on servers or databases which are held on physical infrastructure. However, there are databases which are hosted on cloud platforms and Imperva has a separate tool altogether for that, not SecureSphere.""Integration with other databases or third-party products would be useful.""It would be better to update the solution by using a GUI that guides me, rather than through a CLI.""Technical support for this solution needs improvement.""The GUI for this solution could use some improvement.""The interface is not user-friendly.""Performance can be slow under heavy loads, but this should be adjusted by scaling.""The firewall features are not very strong and should be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"There are no additional costs beyond the standard licensing fees.""The cost primarily depends on the size of the organization."

More Cloudflare Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The cost of support for this solution is very expensive.""Licensing fees are on a yearly basis, and it is a good value for the money.""There is an annual licensing fee for upgrading the device.""Pricing is low and scalable to add features and volume.""The pricing over-all depends on the entry level. For example, if support and maintenance are about $20,000 - $25,000, the initial cost can be five times more. It is less expensive for the company to maintain the client than to make the deployment.""We have all the licenses, which we pay for annually. The price is a little high, but the product is good.""They have introduced new price models, which makes the product more affordable now.""The price is very high but compared to the price of the overall solution, then I think it's a good deal because the solution itself is great."
