Good support and effective against SSL attacks, but the dashboard is complicated

What is our primary use case?

We use this product as our DDoS mitigation solution. This is something that needs to be able to protect against DDoS attacks for Volumetric, Low, and Slow attacks across layer three to layer seven. The solution also needs to integrate with a scrubbing center and route traffic in the case of a volumetric attack.

Pros and Cons

  • "This product uses auto-learning and behavioral analysis to establish baselines for legitimate traffic, and automatically detects and blocks traffic behavior that does not conform."
  • "It does not provide the capability to upload data for blacklisting/whitelisting in bulk."

What other advice do I have?

My advice for anybody who is considering this product is to evaluate based on the following points: * Where you want to place or installed your DDOS appliance. * What throughput mitigation is required. * Whether the device supports cloud signaling. * Determine whether the SSL decryption card is available with the box or needs to be purchased in addition. * License and port requirements in terms of whether you need copper or fiber.

Offers good website protection and the dashboard is simple to use

What is our primary use case?

We use the private and public cloud deployment models of this solution. We use it for the web application. It's a good solution, the service is good.

Pros and Cons

  • "We like the website protection. It's really good. The dashboard is really simple to use."
  • "The next release should have next-generation automation."

What other advice do I have?

I know Reblaze really well. I hear Microsoft has good products but I don't have experience with them. I would say that Reblaze is good but you should evaluate all of your options. You should do the configuration correctly and work according to the product's best practices. I would rate it an eight out of ten.
