Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"It's very user-friendly.""The DDoS protection is the most valuable aspect of the solution.""From what I've seen so far, there are no negatives to report as of yet""There are key things that are used for our enterprise customers, such as Lambda and DNS.""New and innovative way to protect the client's data."

More Cloudflare Pros →

"It has a user-friendly interface. It is a stable and scalable product.""The most valuable feature is the automatic reports on new databases, which gives us up-to-date inventory management.""The beauty of it is that it provides segregation of duties. Typically, in the traditional environment, DBAs administer the database, and they have too much access. We are in the process of implementing other Oracle solutions, and it brings some kind of segregation. Just because someone is a DBA does not mean that he or she should have access to all of the data. Some of the data can be masked so that privacy and security are enhanced, especially when it is customer data for an institution like a bank.""The discovery module provides good visibility.""The company focuses on and has a passion for security.""They have very good documentation and knowledgebase resources that add to the depth of their support.""The audit feature is great. It is totally encrypted.""The initial setup is very simple."

Cons
"Latencies are always a problem.""Technical support is lacking.""There are some issues with the CDN services.""The solution could work at being less expensive. It costs a lot to use it.""Although I think it's quite good, it doesn't provide me with all the features I would expect to have if I were using Imperva."

More Cloudflare Cons →

"The updates could be better.""The solution could improve by having more integration.""Reporting could be improved.""Sometimes the reports are cumbersome, and you have to drill down to get more information.""Its reporting can be improved. The reporting feature is currently not good enough for our clients.""They can maybe look at its pricing model. Its pricing could be cheaper for the African countries or developing economies.""It is quite expensive. I would prefer a lower price.""I would like to see integration such that there is support for different kinds of environments, such as on-premises versus cloud."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "We don't have any issues with the price."
  • "The price is reasonable."
  • More Cloudflare Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "They have introduced new price models, which makes the product more affordable now."
  • "The price is very high but compared to the price of the overall solution, then I think it's a good deal because the solution itself is great."
  • "It is very expensive."
  • "This is an expensive solution and the price should be reduced."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable and it requires a license."
  • "It is quite expensive. We wanted it in my former organization, but the price was very high. So, we couldn't purchase it. I moved to a different organization, and this organization has purchased it."
  • "Its pricing could be cheaper for the African countries or developing economies. The British pound is valued way more than the currency of most African countries. A better or cheaper pricing model for Nigerian and African customers would be better. It has a per-year subscription model. You pay exactly for what you need. That's all. You don't have to buy what you don't need."
  • "Imperva SecureSphere Database Security was quite expensive several years ago, but now they provide a subscription plan for licensing. It is available now for smaller and medium-sized companies, not only large enterprises."
