390,232 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:
I like the user-friendly interface.
They're quite easy to install and quite easy to set up. Clients really like that. Especially when you're dealing with the cloud, it's really easy.
This product is a reliable defense from malicious attacks on a network environment.
Scalability is pretty easy on the base platform. You just add another, and you're ready to go.
Provides Anti-DDoS protection, as well as other protections like SQL injection, Cross-Site Scripting, and antiscanner. These types of protection are valuable to the business due to the daily attacks on our portals, and that often cannot be seen without a tool like this.
Setup was straightforward, very simple. I only entered the domain and Incapsula returned the DNS data that I needed to change for the protection to be configured.
On the site security, I can see which countries have incidents, whether it was a robot attack, a real human user, or non-human user.
On the activity log, I can see the exact details, the visit, and the threat.
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.
We would like them to hire people in Sweden because it's quite hard when people are sitting in the UK or Belgium because some of the customers really want them to be local.
Analytics in the area of risk need to be improved to supply more information to the users for creating better environments.
The solution needs to improve Integration with third parties for their on-prem deployment models. The integration is not that good yet.
Imperva now offers add-ons to add functionality, but I would like to see these included in the product, even if it would cost more.
I am not sure if this application has a policy where you can create your custom policy and run it as our firewall. We should have some ability to also create some custom policy, then run it as a firewall.
I miss being able to integrate the dashboard with other BI tools we are using. We have to export and import data to be able to present it, and doing so is a lot of work.
It would be better if we were able to manage and apply changes to multiple websites/web applications, and search WAF logs for multiple websites, via the Incapsula dashboard.
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 data packages are higher than our needs so we end up paying for data that we don't use.
Although the pricing can be a little high, it is worth the protection and security that it offers.
For enterprise contracts you will be in touch with a dedicated account manager who will guide you regarding licensing.
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.
