The price of the solution is a little high.
I'm not sure of the actual pricing. I've never had to renew them yet. So far the F5 is proven to, according to my analysis at least, to be less expensive than, for example, an Azure load balancer. For our implementation and use, it appears that the F5 is less expensive, over ANTC or TCL than the Azure solution would be. It's also more functional. Honestly, that has to be 70% to 80% of the reason why the choice got made by the company to go with F5. If that hadn't been there, we would probably have a dispersed topology and I'd have to deal with Azure here and some other thing on-prem and that sort of thing. So it makes my life a lot simpler and things a lot cheaper since it's a single point.
There seems to be some controversy around whether or not SSL Inspection should be used by businesses.
What is your opinion - should they be used, and if so when? Conversely, what are the reasons for not using SSL inspection?
