NGINX Web Application Firewall Room for Improvement

Chief Technology Officer at a tech services company with 201-500 employees

The configuration needs to be more flexible because it is difficult to do things that are outside of the ordinary.

This solution would benefit from having a support portal that can be opened directly from the dashboard.

The solution does well when there's low throughput but when we go for any high throughput, it's always a challenge. I'm expecting the next version to have a better high throughput. I also find that the bug fix rate is pretty slow.

I would like to see some more tools and to have some more automation capabilities in the next release, because right now the exposure of the API in NGINX is pretty limited. So I would like to see more of that as well as robustness in the scaling of the solution.

Manager - Cyber Security (SOC) at a financial services firm with 10,001+ employees

This firewall should support more of the network layers.

Profiling capability should be improved.

Setting policies and parameters through the UI should be more automated because the process is manual, where we can only edit one rule at a time.
