We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
The simplicity of the solution and its ability to integrate easily with others are its most valuable aspects.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.
