Cons
"In terms of improvement, the pricing and documentation need improvement. We have had problems getting the documents.""I did not go with it because their APM module is a different product altogether. It's a common thing that companies do. They sell something and then they add on top of it as a different product. It is a type of marketing strategy. But when it comes to the overall management, it takes a lot of time to really look into it."

"The monitoring on the solution could be better.""The security of the product could be adjusted.""The configuration is very specific right now and needs to be much more flexible.""It takes a lot of time for a certificate to update in the system. That is a huge drawback, affecting the load-balancing side. And when there are changes to the load balancing, it affects the end-user.""For the first-time user, it is difficult to understand so the user-interface needs to be improved.""It does not have the flexibility for using public IPs in version 2.""Scalability can be an issue.""In the next release, the solution could improve the integration with Service Mesh and other Azure Security Services."
