What needs improvement?

The reporting should be much better because it's really hard to generate reports with F5. We export the reports to other file extensions and then have to import them in order to create a graph. The reporting should be much, much better. The… more»

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Prior to using this solution we used Fortinet. I do not know why we switched because the transition had happened before I joined the company.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We used another solution which is Citrix, but we decided to switch due to some recurring issues and to mitigate future problems.

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten, one being the worst and ten being the best, I would rate F5 Silverline a seven. Seven, because it does what we need it to do but we need to see more features. However, I do… more»

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

What is most valuable?

In terms of most valuable features in the solution, most of the time we check for learning periods and that it has an intelligence platform.

What needs improvement?

To make this solution much better, they must have a user-friendly configuration interface. I'm working for a partner site, so for the technical portion, it must have great troubleshooting stats. For example, Arbor doesn't have web application firewall capabilities, and sometimes I need that… more»

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

Again, if the solution doesn't have a web application firewall capability, it can raise the solution price. Pricing can be higher than the other solutions.

What other advice do I have?

For someone considering this solution, they have to do a POC at first. On a scale from 1 to 10, I would rate Sliverline DDoS an eight. They are so new in Turkey that they don't have too much to offer here yet.
