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

More Cloudflare Pros →

"You have better control because you define apps. You just don't define ports. You define apps, and the apps are monitored in the traffic. It is more specific than the Cisco firewall when it comes to our needs.""Scalable ATP solution that's quick to set up. It demonstrates good performance and stability.""Remote access is excellent.""The analysis is very fast.""WildFire's application encryption is useful.""The most valuable feature is the cloud-based protection against zero-day malware attacks.""The solution has plenty of features.""It gives a more accurate assessment of a virus in terms of whether it's truly a virus, malware, or a false positive. We have some legacy software that could pop up as being something that is malware. WildFire goes through and inspects it, and then it comes back and lets us know if it's a false positive. Usually, when it finds out that it's not a virus, it lets us know that it's benign, and it can exclude it from that scan, which means I don't even have to worry about that one popping up anymore."

Cons
"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.""There are some issues with the CDN services.""Latencies are always a problem.""Technical support is lacking.""The solution could work at being less expensive. It costs a lot to use it."

More Cloudflare Cons →

"The only problem with this solution is the cost. It's expensive.""In the future, I would like to see more automation in the reporting.""When comparing this solution to others it is not as good overall.""The threat intelligence that we receiving in the reporting was not as expected. We were expecting more. Additionally, we should be able to whitelist a specific file based on a variety of attributes.""The deployment model could be better.""They can keep on doing more updates. As new malware and viruses are coming out, they can make sure that WildFire is up to date.""The configuration should be made a little bit easier. I understand why it is as it is, but there should be a way to make it easier from the user side.""There are some formats that the solution cannot support ."

  • "The price is reasonable."
  • More Cloudflare Pricing and Cost Advice →

  • "I think they should lower the price of this solution"
  • "The pricing is highly expensive."
  • "This is an expensive product and the market for Palo Alto in Poland could be much bigger if the pricing was comparable to Fortinet."
  • "The price is a bit higher than the other products such as TrendMicro, or FireEye."
  • "Pricing could be improved."
  • "We are on an annual subscription. When we purchased the firewall, we had activated this solutions license for a minimum of one year. The price of the solution is fair."
  • "It depends on the features. Additional features cost additional money as well."
  • "The solution is overpriced."
