The core features help us with compliance but the reporting needs to be improved

What is our primary use case?

There are many use cases, but the most important one is due to the Central Bank policy which states that we must make it only accessible within Iran. It restricts people from making transactions outside of Iran.

Pros and Cons

  • "We have a lot of businesses that we put behind this solution, and it has really helped us in terms of monitoring the logs and incidents."
  • "You need to have Linux knowledge in order to use the shell."

What other advice do I have?

This is a good product that you can rely on. It has great features, including the LTM, ASM, and GTM. You can improve your security with this product. Because I am the SOC manager and reporting is really important for me, I cannot give this product a perfect score. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.

Requires fewer resources to operate

What is our primary use case?

This solution is used for load balancing.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable features are the configuration and configuring the process."
  • "The product could be improved on the global load and the integration with the other solution like Cisco and Dell. As a representor of the operation, we prefer to have one platform which can accommodate all type of integration. We are also looking for more improvements in the security policy configuration."

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 recommend this solution.
