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

Pros
"I really love the Data Explorer. I use it all the time to go in and craft exactly what I need to see. I'm able to then take that story and explain it to the executives. I've done that a couple of times and it is helpful.""In terms of the solution’s real-time visibility across our network infrastructure, I have not been able to find any other monitoring or netflow visualization tool that gives me the kind of information I get from Kentik. If I need to take a deep-dive into something that I see, it's really easy for me to do that. Whereas with most other things, I have to use five or six other tools to get that kind of data, with Kentik, I have it all in one place.""Having the API access allows us to do a great deal of automation around a lot of our reporting and management tools.""We're also using Kentik to ingest metrics. It's a useful feature, and its response time, whenever we're pulling back the data, is higher than our on-prem solution.""I am able to do a lot of work on the visualization end to create different visualizations and different ways to get information out of it.""The drill-down into detailed views of network activity helps to quickly pinpoint locations and causes. All the information is there.""The most valuable feature is being able to pull traffic patterns; to and from destinations. We're able to understand where our traffic is going, our top talkers from an AS set, as well as where our traffic's coming from.""The most valuable features have been anything around traffic engineering: being able to determine the source or destination of a surge of traffic, whether it's DDoS-related, or a customer just happened to have a sudden uptick in traffic. Being able to tell where that's coming from or where it's going to enables us to do things based on that."

"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."

"With the secure signature feature, the Radware DefensePro is a big assistance. It is a big help to our customers to improve their productivity and performance. The prompt response from the Radware team is definitely increasing in the new era.""A flexible affordable solution for defense against DDos attacks.""The DDoS protection that the solution provides is its most valuable feature.""All of our traffic has to pass through the appliance, so we can very quickly mitigate the attack. This is a very valuable feature. On top of that, it's not only volumetric attack protection that the solution offers, but also layer 7 attack protection as well.""The most valuable feature is the ability to create signatures on-demand.""The reporting is very good and provides us with a comprehensive description of where attacks are emanating from."

Cons
"I've checked out the V4 version of the interface and it's still a little bit clunky for me to use. I still go back to the old interface. That's definitely one that they still need to work on. It doesn't seem like everything that you get in the V3, the older interface, is there. For instance, I was trying to add a user or do the administrative tasks in V4, and I couldn't figure out where I was supposed to do that.""There is room for improvement around the usability of the API. It's a hugely complex task to call it and you need a lot of backing to be able to do it. I should say, as someone who's not in networking, maybe it's easier for people who are in networking, but for me that one part is not very user-friendly.""I would like to see them explore the area of cost analysis.""The only downside to Kentik, something that I don't like, is that it's great that it shows you where these anomalies lie, but it's not actionable. Kentik is valuable, don't get me wrong, but if it had an actionable piece to it...""They're moving more in a direction where they are saying, "Hey, here's information that you may be interested in or may a need," before the question has to explicitly be asked. Continuing to move in that direction would be a good thing.""We asked for a way, regarding the potential networks that exist, to hook Kentik up with external tools like peering DBs to correlate things together and see what we can do... This is all in the [next] beta now.""I believe they're already working on this, but I would love for them to create better integrations from network flow data to application performance — tracing — so that we could overlay that data more readily. With more companies going hybrid, flow logs and flow data, whether it be VPC or on-prem, matched with application performance and trace data, is pretty important."

"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."

"Radware DefensePro requires a continuous learning process. Using this technology, we can improve our network. Based on the different attack mechanisms, we use Radware DefensePro to provide security for our clients' networks very effectively.""It could incorporate more intelligence for reacting with web site visitors.""I had some trouble in the registration account prior to deployment, but it was fixed. They were not very fast or responsive, however. It took about one week to resolve the issue.""The solution needs a bit more functionality. It would be good if DefensePro could have anti-bot functionalities in order to stop bots like web scrapers from getting onto our customers’ network.""I would like to see more focus on layer seven protection.""This solution may not cover all of the requirements in situations for which I am unfamiliar, and there is always room for improvement."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We have an annual contract with Kentik that we renew each year for a set number of licenses. We also have some burstable licenses which we can spin up and spin down, and those are paid as they are used."

More Kentik 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 »

"It is sort of middle-of-the-road for this type of solution.""The Radware DefensePro was bundled together with our security platform.""The pricing is based on the amount of network traffic and the number of packets being inspected."
