Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"The most valuable features are the geo-restriction denials and the web ACL.""Its best feature is that it is on the cloud and does not require local hardware resources.""The solution is stable.""Their technical support has been quite good.""The most valuable features of AWS WAF are its cloud-native and on-demand.""This is not a product that you need to install. You just use it.""This product supplies options for web security for applications accessing sensitive information.""The access instruction feature is the most valuable. This is what we use the most."

More AWS WAF Pros →

"A user-friendly and reasonably priced solution.""The product offers high availability."

More Radware AppWall Pros →

"We don't have much control over blocking, because the WAF is managed by AWS.""The serverless product from AWS WAF could be improved. For example, they have only one serverless series, Lambda, but they should extend and improve it. Additionally, the firewall rules are not very easy to configure.""We haven't faced any problems with the solution.""The solution could improve by having better rules, they are very basic at the moment. There are more attacks coming and we have to use third-party solutions, such as FIA. The features are not sufficient to prevent all the attacks, such as DDoS. Overall the solution should be more secure.""When users choose the free service, there isn't great support available to them.""The setup is complicated.""Technical support for AWS WAF needs improvement.""While the complexity of the installation can vary from one service to another, overall, I would say that it and the configuration and navigation are somewhat complex."

"You need to have pretty good internal knowledge of the solution.""Scalability should be based on customer requirements."

Pricing and Cost Advice

  • "It has a variable pricing scheme."
  • "We are kind of doing a POC comparison to see what works best. Pricing-wise, AWS is one of the most attractive ones. It is fairly cheap, and we like the pricing part. We're trying to see what makes more sense operation-wise, license-wise, and pricing-wise."
  • "It's quite affordable. It's in the middle."
  • "The pricing should be more affordable, especially as it pertains to small clients."
  • "It's cheap."
  • "AWS WAF is pay-as-you-go, I only pay for what I'm using. There is no subscription or any payment upfront, I can terminate use at any time. Which is an advantage."
  • "You need an additional AWS subscription for this product if you are buying a managed tool."
