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

"We chose this solution in the first place because it has access to Layer 7. I can control the requests and the content, which I can access on my network if I want to even if it's forbidden access to other external resources. If I want to monitor, for example, traffic, and apply this rule on Layer 7, I can do so. This was our main goal when implementing this application. We wanted to take advantage of the Gateway capabilities.""The simplicity of the solution and its ability to integrate easily with others are its most valuable aspects.""This is a SaaS product, so it is always up to date.""Good customization; able to report and take action on alerts.""The solution was very easy to configure. It wasn't hard at all to adjust it to our needs.""Load balancing and web application firewall features are the most valuable."

Cons
"The product could be improved on the global load and the integration with the other solution like Cisco and Dell. As a representor of the operation, we prefer to have one platform which can accommodate all type of integration. We are also looking for more improvements in the security policy configuration.""You need to have Linux knowledge in order to use the shell.""In terms of the scalability, this part is always so confusing because they are checking for packet count. Also, after an attack, they said that the throughput must be from gigabits but then I check my bandwidth and it is already done in gigabits. So it is a little bit confusing."

Right now, it's a bit expensive.""For the first-time user, it is difficult to understand so the user-interface needs to be improved.""Needs easier integration with the existing SIAM.""The security of the product could be adjusted.""It does not have the flexibility for using public IPs in version 2."

Overview

F5 Silverline DDoS Protection is a service delivered via the Silverline cloud-based platform. It provides detection and mitigation to stop even the largest of volumetric DDoS attacks from reaching your network.

Silverline services are wholly deployed and managed by experts from F5’s Security Operations Center (SOC). That means you have access to highly specialized security experts, 24/7.

Azure Application Gateway is a web traffic load balancer that enables you to manage traffic to your web applications. Traditional load balancers operate at the transport layer (OSI layer 4 - TCP and UDP) and route traffic based on source IP address and port, to a destination IP address and port.
