Find out what your peers are saying about F5 Silverline DDoS Protection vs. Radware DefensePro and other solutions. Updated: January 2021.
455,962 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are the configuration and configuring the process."
"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."
"F5 technical support is really good."
"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."
"It has kept us up and operational on a day-to-day basis, without being interrupted by an attack from outside sources."
"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."
"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."
"This product would be improved if ongoing live monitoring with dashboards were added."
