Consistent and stable with a straightforward setup

What is our primary use case?

We primarily use the solution for securing public internet communications.

Pros and Cons

  • "The initial setup isn't too difficult."
  • "The most difficult thing that we have to deal with is SSL Hardening. Vulnerabilities are found in various ciphers, getting them removed, identifying them, et cetera."

What other advice do I have?

We have a partner relationship with F5. We work with 1.2 SSL, TLS 1.2 and 1.3. The most challenging thing is that it just requires a little more understanding than your average web user, server user, or something similar. The solution does require some explicit knowledge. Somewhere down the way, depending on your underlying purpose and how secure you want to be, you're going to need to have a little better knowledge than the layman has as to SSL ciphers, keys, et cetera, to make them function. An organization just needs to be aware that to take advantage of the solution properly they'll want…

A stable solution with good security features, but needs more cloud features and better support and scalability

What is our primary use case?

We did SSL decryption for our F5 load balancer. It is done not only for the server but also for the users who are going outside of the solution.

Pros and Cons

  • "Its security features are very good. It has normal security, and then it has add-on security with a separate license, which I find very good. It is also very stable."
  • "It can have more features on the cloud side because we are moving a lot of servers to our cloud. Its support and scalability also need improvement. Currently, their technical support is slow, and its scalability is complex. It should have integrated SSL decryption with some special machine algorithm to tell us about certain kinds of security issues. Currently, it can decrypt, but it should also provide more information. It can have some kind of algorithm to inform us about how the packets should or shouldn't be. It should inform us when certain things are happening. When users are going to the internet and it sees an abnormal behavior or abnormal type of traffic, it should alarm us about this. It should tell us that there is some kind of strange traffic, and it shouldn't be like that. Currently, it lacks in this aspect."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate F5 SSL Visibility a seven out of ten.

Secure, highly reliable, and scalable

What is our primary use case?

My organization uses the solution by having the endpoint as the F5 and we run some clear traffic on the private internal network behind it. This allows us not to have to keep the SSL channels open, we do not have to deal with that overhead.

Pros and Cons

  • "Every scenario we have put the solution through it has been able to handle it one way or another."
  • "The installation is complex but not more than other competitors."

What other advice do I have?

Given our long, good track record with the solution, I would advise if you can afford this solution then purchase it. It is a great solution. As for rating the solution, nothing is a 10 because there is always something to improve. I rate F5 SSL Visibility a nine out of ten.
