We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
F5 technical support is really good.
We have a lot of businesses that we put behind this solution, and it has really helped us in terms of monitoring the logs and incidents.
The most valuable features are the configuration and configuring the process.
The most valuable feature is the ability to create signatures on-demand.
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 DDoS protection that the solution provides is its most valuable feature.
A flexible affordable solution for defense against DDos attacks.
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 valuable feature is the speed of signature updates.
SSL-based mitigation from DDoS attacks is good from their side. They are capable of preventing SSL-based attacks with certifications and everything loaded onto them.
It has not gone down for a quite long time. It's working fine.
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.
You need to have Linux knowledge in order to use the shell.
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.
I would like to see more focus on layer seven protection.
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 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.
It could incorporate more intelligence for reacting with web site visitors.
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.
If they would go to a cloud-based approach, that would give much more flexibility in terms of working with them.
They should add artificial intelligence to the platform. It is currently missing the machine learning piece.
I would like to see better implementation of a zero-day attack implementation strategy with self-mitigation.
Pricing and Cost Advice

The Radware DefensePro was bundled together with our security platform.
It is sort of middle-of-the-road for this type of solution.
The product's pricing is a good value.
The cost for maintenance is cheaper because the majority of the deployments using the solution are in areas where cost of maintenance is also lower.
Licensing of Radware is quite simple and straightforward, while Arbor DDos is a bit complicated.
