Cons
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.
