We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"There are key things that are used for our enterprise customers, such as Lambda and DNS."
"It is easier to configure and develop documentation to see how we have configured firewalls."
"It's very user-friendly."
"The solution is very good at mitigating threats."
"The most valuable feature is the web application firewall."
"From what I've seen so far, there are no negatives to report as of yet"
"The DDoS protection is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"New and innovative way to protect the client's data."
"WAF is useful to track mitigation, inclusion, prevention, and the parametric 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."
"The most valuable feature is that I can establish different services from the firewall."
"Latencies are always a problem."
"The solution could use more analytics on the backend to give us more insights into everything. More reports would be helpful."
"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."
"Technical support is lacking."
"The solution could work at being less expensive. It costs a lot to use it."
"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."
"There are some issues with the CDN services."
"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."
"The configuration needs to be more flexible because it is difficult to do things that are outside of the ordinary."
"The cost primarily depends on the size of the organization."
"We don't have any issues with the price."
"The price is reasonable."
"Our licensing costs are about $40,000 a year."
"The licensing fees for this solution are pretty expensive for what it does, but there is no alternative."
