Cons
"It's a complicated tool to keep.""Their portal is very limited and needs improvement.""It would be helpful to have a "recommended deployment", or even a list of basic features that should either be used or turned on by default.""The initial setup could be simplified. Every time you have to install the solution you have to get in touch with support or somebody that can to do that for you.""Some of the features should be included in the next release is a file integrating monitoring tool. This feature should be improved.""It would be useful if the solution used more intelligence in attack protection. For example, firewalls are to be dependent on the configuration, but if they could have some data science around it the solution would be even better. The profiling of the traffic, and making decisions surrounding that should be intelligence-based, instead of being based on the configuration of the firewall itself.""I think that better bot protection is needed in this solution.""The user interface could be better."

"I would like for them to add proxy filtering, where you can transfer and alter the package. It is fully automated. Other web application testers programs are actually proxy software, and the proxy software gives you the flexibility of modifying the outgoing package, which will actually help you in exploiting any vulnerability in detail.""It would be great if there were a dashboard that is more user-friendly."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"Everybody complains about the price of this solution.""The cost of this solution depends on the platform.""The price of this solution is a little bit high compared to competitors.""There are some licenses that you have to buy to use some features. Its price could be better. Price is always important because, at the end of the day, customers have a budget. If you can meet the budget, you can sell, and if you don't, you cannot sell."
