If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Cisco Web Security Appliance, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
Try it. See how it works, it's not difficult to implement and it's not so expensive. I would recommend it. I would rate it a ten out of ten. In the next release, I would like to see reporting to implement more features. The license should also be more flexible.
My advice for anybody who is researching this appliance is to first determine exactly what it is that they require. There are a lot of applications and features but many of the features are useless for the organization. For example, if they do not need the DDoS features then they shouldn't get them and pay the additional fee. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
You need a fair comparison with other solutions to judge and compare others fairly. I have only used Cisco and would not be able to provide a fair assessment. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
I use this product and implement it. I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
I would rate this solution a six out of ten.
I will rate this solution a nine out of ten. I hope to see the next release being more affordable and better integration between platforms.
