A good load-balancing reverse proxy for internal applications that is easy to setup and has good technical support

What is our primary use case?

I am a consultant, and I have customers who purchase Alteon Box. I help them with the design and architecture. The primary use case is mainly for load balancing internal applications, for internal-facing customers, as well as external customers on the internet.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the load-balancing reverse proxy."
  • "We are having a difficult time with the security module, and how to implement the Radware security."

What other advice do I have?

For anyone who is considering using this solution with application security or complex used case. I would suggest that they talk to professional services. I would recommend they work with professional services depending on the project complexity, and if it's migration, for instance, the scripting around the Radware is not something people would be familiar with. Professional services would be able to help with the scripting. I would rate Radware Alteon a nine out of ten.
