Quotes from Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:


"AWS has flexibility in terms of WAF rules."
"Stable and scalable web application firewall. Setting it up is straightforward."
"One common use case is using detection protection for enhancing security models in AWS. Another use case is implementing log analysis and response recovery procedures for email services."
"If hackers try to insert bugs, the tool blocks it."
"The most valuable feature is the capability to limit access based on geographical location by restricting specific IP addresses."
"The interface is good."
"It is Amazon. Everything is scalable. It is beyond what we need."

"We have issues with reporting, troubleshooting, and analytics. AWS WAF needs to bring costs down."
"We should be able to do proper whitelisting."
"The area that should be improved is licensing."
