What is most valuable?

The most powerful feature is the ability to first learn what type of query to make to your web application when it is attacked and what type of query creates a false… more »

How has it helped my organization?

Improves nothing. Helps us to monitor situations in regards to attacks to our sites and prevents a lot of them.

What needs improvement?

The biggest problem for us was the stability and speed using the first version of Wallarm. Now, it is fine.

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

Pricing must be cheaper than the competition and the licensing must be good.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Yes, it was ModSecurity, but their WAF is not flexible and gives a lot of false positives because you need to create regular expressions for a lot of queries. It is hard… more »

What other advice do I have?

Set up Wallarm as a reverse proxy. Do not replace your web server. Use Wallarm first in monitoring mode, then learn from Wallarm which type of request is false positive… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Before we switched to Wallarm's first version, we tested Imperva WAF but Wallarm's results were much better than Imperva and we choose Wallarm with a big discount for… more »

What is most valuable?

Deployment simplicity helps our maintenance guys to set up quickly. Their machine learning techniques significantly lower the false-positive alerts rate.

How has it helped my organization?

The use of a WAF becomes especially relevant in the case of concrete vulnerabilities, such as those uncovered via penetration tests or source code reviews. Even if it were possible to fix the… more »

What needs improvement?

It is only about stability issues. But it is a usual problem for all new products. At this moment, we have no incidents with Wallarm that has been up for eight months.

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

Wallarm is an expensive solution, but they are worth the money.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Wallarm was our first WAF solution.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We have tested and evaluated several WAF solutions, and chose Wallarm. They are the only solution that fits our success criteria and business objectives: * WAF must have a low (<5%) false negative… more »

What is most valuable?

Vulnerability scanner and WAF are valuable features. It blocks most attacks on our web application.

How has it helped my organization?

It provides one more layer in our security, i.e., firewall, IDS/IPS, WAF.

What needs improvement?

Wallarm uses a learning mechanism to detect attacks and to avoid false positives. If Wallarm blocks some illegitimate request, then you can go to the management console… more »

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

Pricing is transparent and clear. I don’t know what to advise.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

Previously, we have used open-source ModSecurity, but it was not effective. Then, we tried Wallarm and it was good for us.

What other advice do I have?

I recommend Wallarm to my other colleagues.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn’t try any other product.

What do you think of Wallarm NG WAF?

What is most valuable?

Perimeter control and active vulnerability scanner are the most valuable features. These features helped us to find some issues which would be very hard to find manually.

How has it helped my organization?

It’s hard to say how it has improved the way my organization functions.

What needs improvement?

The flexibility of active scanner settings: Most settings can only be changed through technical support at this moment.

For how long have I used the solution?

Test period: autumn 2015 - summer 2016 Production: summer 2016 - till now

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

We have not had scalability issues.

How are customer service and technical support?

Technical support is 6 or 7 out of 10. Sometimes we have had trouble with…

What is most valuable?

I would say that the active threat detection feature and adaptive rules are the most valuable for us. With active threat detection, we are no longer over-swamped with tons… more »

How has it helped my organization?

We added a real-time protection layer for all the web-facing applications and APIs in our CI/CD pipelines. As every one of the applications are updated almost every day… more »

What needs improvement?

It needs more customization in PDF reports.

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

As Wallarm charges on a per-instance basis, you need to keep in mind your future scale. In our case, the customer traffic is increasing year-to-year. My piece of advice is… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We tried to use open-source mod_security for some of the projects, but there was a lot of pain with the complicated rules/signatures and non-stop false positives. As far… more »

What other advice do I have?

It's better to evaluate Wallarm nodes (WAF functions) on production traffic to understand false positive rates under real conditions. Otherwise, it's hard to evaluate the… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We tried mod_security. Imperva was not a good fit as we can’t use hardware boxes or VM images in a cloud environment. Incapsula and other cloud-provided solutions did not… more »
