Kemp LoadMaster Room for Improvement

We would like to see them improve the security by putting a well trusted and very efficient WAF inside the appliance. They currently use an open-source solution for this, but it would be great to include a more secure one because it would be a complete solution in terms of load balancing and security. We are currently researching WAF solutions to implement for our perimeter, so it is on the radar for our model. The GUI is rather technical and complex, so it could be improved by making it simpler and more user-friendly. This is a very powerful solution that gives you an edge, but some of the features are hard to understand. For example, the configuration values are difficult. The templates help in this regard. Each value is explained in the documentation, but it still needs to be simpler. I would like to see Active Directory integration for authentication of the admin role, so the usernames are not on the local appliance. View full review »

There are plenty of features that are lacking in my opinion: * The auth website of ESP is really lacking. It’s not responsive (mobile friendly) and the procedure of changing the website is difficult. We tend to avoid using pre-auth for that reason, and it's really a shame. * Several elements of the GUI need work. For example, if you have many content switches, it’s difficult to find the ones you need. And where is the search feature? * If you want logging for SMTP traffic, you have to enable ESP, which requires you to define allowed IP addresses. That’s irritating, to say the least. * Using the GUI to view log files is tedious. A nice log parser would help. * It lacks an officially supported, well-written SCOM Management Pack.
