The web application firewall itself is most valuable. It provides positive security and negative security. In negative security, it blocks a task such as cross-site scripting, code injection, etc. In positive security, it lets you specify and enforce things, such as the parameters allowed in username and password fields and the number of characters allowed in a field.

The most valuable features of this solution are the WAF protection, Data Safe, and the seven-layer DDoS.

The valuable features vary from customers to customers. Some customers are okay with the basic features of the WAF, and some customers use advanced WAF with a few other features.

Feature-wise, they are always cutting edge and up-to-date. Many features aren't available via competitors. There's always a lot of enhanced critical features that just aren't available through anyone else, or, if they are, are too lightweight.

There is no need to worry about updating signatures because WAF will automatically update the signatures for you.

I like all of the features, but the main one is the attack signatures.

In terms of F5 Advanced WAF's most valuable features, I would definitely say its stability. F5 is one the most stable products. Either as the load balancer or the web application firewall, it is very stable.

The anti-bot protection is the solution's most valuable feature. Safe-guard or credential staffing are also useful features.

This solution inspects your traffic and based on that, automatically create distinct qualities for you, so you can add this to the policy already created. That's what I like most.

The solution isn't too expensive. The license allows you to license what you need and leave out what you don't need.

With F5 Advanced WAF, it was protection for online publications and for our customers that caused us to choose the platform.

I like them because I like the security solution. They get extra marks compared to other solutions or competitors. There are more features than any other product I can think of. They're always monitoring, and the security features offer more than other, lesser products.
