We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"We chose this solution in the first place because it has access to Layer 7. I can control the requests and the content, which I can access on my network if I want to even if it's forbidden access to other external resources. If I want to monitor, for example, traffic, and apply this rule on Layer 7, I can do so. This was our main goal when implementing this application. We wanted to take advantage of the Gateway capabilities."
"The simplicity of the solution and its ability to integrate easily with others are its most valuable aspects."
"This is a SaaS product, so it is always up to date."
"Good customization; able to report and take action on alerts."
"The solution was very easy to configure. It wasn't hard at all to adjust it to our needs."
"Load balancing and web application firewall features are the most valuable."
"WAF feature replicates the firewall."
"The pricing is quite good."
"The features that mitigate attacks are very valuable."
"Security is one of the most valuable features that I like. It is easy to use and easy to configure."
"I like the concept of self-service, that I can do everything on my own."
"The product offers high availability."
"The pricing of the solution is a bit high. The solution should offer different pricing systems."
"The pricing of the solution could be improved. Right now, it's a bit expensive."
"For the first-time user, it is difficult to understand so the user-interface needs to be improved."
"Needs easier integration with the existing SIAM."
"The security of the product could be adjusted."
"It does not have the flexibility for using public IPs in version 2."
"Scalability can be an issue."
"The monitoring on the solution could be better."
"The GUI needs to be improved. Right now, the solution isn't so user-friendly."
"Support is very important because if we get good support, we'll be able to sell and supply more numbers."
"You need to have pretty good internal knowledge of the solution."
"It is not expensive."
"Every solution comes with a license and cost. Microsoft provides the license and the total cost is for the maintenance every year."
