We performed a comparison between Akamai Kona Site Defender and Azure DDoS Protection based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out in this report how the two Distributed Denial of Service (DDOS) Protection solutions compare in terms of features, pricing, service and support, easy of deployment, and ROI.
"The features are powerful and better than F5."
"The most valuable feature is the custom rules feature. This is because many of our customers require a lot of custom rules. Because it's a very customized project for our customers, I think they have the best of everything already."
"The solution can scale extremely well."
"I like that the charges are all based on usage and labor costs. For the time that we spend onboarding almost 252020 FQDN, Akamai charges us only for the traffic usage, but it's only charging us for the labor costs for onboarding."
"The most important feature is that the solution continuously monitors traffic by inbuilt rules to identify preconfigured attacks."
"The most valuable feature of Azure DDoS Protection is that it performs well."
"This solution is the best option for us because we use a lot of Microsoft products. So, it is easy for us to deploy or integrate any features or products."
"Support and the pricing need to improve."
"The pricing could be reduced a bit."
"It would be better if there weren't any issues with latency. We had latency issues, but I think they are all solved now."
"They are already very flexible, but room for improvement is there. Reports generation could be better and should be improved."
"Sometimes, it is hard for our staff to keep track of changes (in the GUI) between different projects, because there are constant changes. As a result, it is hard to manage, recall, and see all the features because they have been moved from one place to another."
"The UI needs to be improved."
"Azure DDoS Protection could improve on the reporting."
Azure DDoS Protection, combined with application design best practices, provides defense against DDoS attacks.
