What is most valuable?

The most important feature is that they have L7-firewall protection, to protect our web servers.

What needs improvement?

I think F5 is one of the best web application firewalls in the world. So support is pretty good. They provide the best protection features in the market at the moment. I can't tell how they could improve. I just hope the price can be cheaper. I think they are changing. They are also providing some… more»

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

You have to pay for the base license. And if you need, for example, other features, like the Web Application Firewall, you need to pay for a separate license and you need to pay for the support contract. You need to renew your support contract yearly. So if that's cheaper it would be better. Just to… more»

What other advice do I have?

I would rate the F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall an eight out of ten. Pricing is the reason why I wouldn't give it a ten. There's really no 10 I think in the market. They always have something that needs to improve or upgrade.

What is most valuable?

It's a good front end for public infrastructure.

What needs improvement?

The price is high in comparison to other products.

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

The licensing can be yearly or monthly. They offer both. There aren't any other fees above the standard licensing.

What other advice do I have?

If you are looking for web security and don't have any solution, just try it. I don't think the solution needs too much more. Sometimes you try to build too much and you make things worse. They should just take what they have right now and continuously improve it to make it better. With caching and… more»
