We just renewed our license and will be continuing to use this product. Overall, this is a good security solution, but there is no such thing as a perfect appliance in IT. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

I would rate the F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall an eight out of ten. Pricing is the reason why I wouldn't give it a ten. There's really no 10 I think in the market. They always have something that needs to improve or upgrade.

If you are looking for web security and don't have any solution, just try it. I don't think the solution needs too much more. Sometimes you try to build too much and you make things worse. They should just take what they have right now and continuously improve it to make it better. With caching and security, everything so far is fine. I would rate this solution 9 out of 10.
