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

Pros
This solution is an enterprise-class firewall that provides both load-balancing and security.The anti-bot protection is the solution's most valuable feature. Safe-guard or credential staffing are also useful features.This solution inspects your traffic and based on that, automatically create distinct qualities for you, so you can add this to the policy already created. That's what I like most.The solution isn't too expensive. The license allows you to license what you need and leave out what you don't need.I definitely recommend this solution because of the time you save on analysis.The best solution for WAF.With F5 Advanced WAF, it was protection for online publications and for our customers that caused us to choose the platform.The most valuable feature is artificial intelligence and to get extra internal access.

Cons
This solution can be made more user-friendly.The solution's dashboard could be improved. When you're moving from policy to policy, the logs and the integration of the logs in other systems aren't straightforward.I would not expect traffic details to pass through the web application firewall across the length of the whole application. I think that there is a web application where it can let the application function without traffic going in into the WAF.The solution is tedious. It takes a lot of discrete settings so one needs to get detailed and granular when they use the solution. It takes you a whole lot of energy and concentration to configure. It needs to be much more straight-forward, like other web solutions.One thing that can be improved, is to increase the quantity over predefine policy.I think the deployment templates can be better.F5 Advanced WAF needs better integration within the application, like remote dashboards.The administrator's user interface and some of the settings can sometimes be very complicated to understand.
