What is most valuable?

I would have to say that F5 excels in all aspects of network protection. There are five modules and I have yet to use them all. I use the LTM that's Local Traffic Manager, then I've worked with APM or… more»

How has it helped my organization?

The F5 product has one thing that is remarkable. I do not have any two deployments for customers that are exactly the same. There are so many opportunities to configure the product to the client's… more»

What needs improvement?

I've had a very impressive four-year experience deploying F5, so it is difficult to pinpoint one weakness in the solution. On the other hand, honestly in all of the deployments I have done with F5… more»

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The product is a little expensive but it is such a good solution and unified that the cost is worth the price.

What other advice do I have?

I have not had any deployments that are exactly the same. For example, if I deployed everything as a solution for customer A and for customer B I do deployments with the same set of applications, and… more»

What is most valuable?

I find the signature base is very helpful to see traffic, to see the increase in web traffic.

How has it helped my organization?

It helps improve the security of my environment.

What needs improvement?

The interface for applying the features could use improvement. There are too many buttons. For the buttons, you don't get a clear description. With the interface, you don't get a clear idea of what you are doing. This affects what is… more»

What other advice do I have?

There should be more qualified support, like training videos or how to install features. I would rate the solution 8 out of 10. If the user interface was more user-friendly, I'd rate it higher.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't really evaluate other options. They were the top one at the time, so we decided to go for that.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that you can implement it in a positive or negative model. Most customers implement the protection with a negative model because implementing with a positive model is not simple. We need help from the… more»

How has it helped my organization?

This solution has improved security. We also use it to protect various customer's software. They offer good video material to implement this solution. It's a mature product. Imperva is a competitor but this solution is the market leader. It… more»

What needs improvement?

It used to not be simple to use because the GUI was complex. The GUI has evolved and is better now. The database is not simple. It's not easy to understand. We needed to protect the database but the solution doesn't offer certain features… more»

If you previously used a different solution, which one did you use and why did you switch?

I was previously using Imperva but my company wanted to switch to F5.

What other advice do I have?

This is a good product. I would recommend this solution to anybody evaluating it. I would rate this solution a nine out of ten.
