Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"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"

More Cloudflare Pros »

"Filters can be customized depending on the characteristics of the attack traffic. This feature has made it easier for Nexusguard's SOC team to further isolate any specific attack that can't be blocked by pre-configured mitigation."

Cons
"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."

More Cloudflare Cons »

"One thing that we would like to improve from them is to provide more training to SOC team for them to have a deep understanding of the solution so that they would always be ready to answer anything without the need to escalate queries to senior personnel."

More Nexusguard Cons »

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost primarily depends on the size of the organization.""We don't have any issues with the price.""The price is reasonable."
