Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Identification, ease of use, and ease of modifying it to most of our needs are valuable.""The most valuable features of F5 Advanced WAF are the easy identification of events and customization. We can pinpoint our settings.""F5 Advanced WAF is a stable solution, we are satisfied. It is more stable than ForiWeb.""Feature-wise, they are always cutting edge and up-to-date. Many features aren't available via competitors. There's always a lot of enhanced critical features that just aren't available through anyone else, or, if they are, are too lightweight.""We can monitor IP locations, but we have constraints from each country. It has a replication feature. Licenses can be shared, taking turns with each license.""I like all of the features, but the main one is the attack signatures.""The most valuable features of F5 Advanced WAF are SSL uploading, signature, and anomaly detection. It is overall a high-quality solution.""It's scalable and very easy to manage."

More F5 Advanced WAF Pros →

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

More Radware AppWall Pros →

"There should be more ability to rate limit certain scenarios. The majority of the time, it is either on or off. For certain types of use cases, there should be the ability to rate limit, not just enable or disable.""The interface is old-looking, it's not modern, which is why it's not always comfortable to use.""F5 Advanced WAF could improve on its funding for WAF features. There is a need to be more advanced WAF features.""The solution could improve by having an independent capture module. It has a built feature that you can deploy the capture on your published website. However, it's not very user-friendly. When you compare this feature to Google Capture or other enterprise captures, they are very simple. It needs a good connection to the F5 Advanced WAF sandbox. When you implement this feature in the data center, you may suffer some complications with connecting to the F5 Advanced WAF sandbox. This should be improved in the future.""We usually use a third-party tool for logging and reporting. It would be nice if we could do that right on this solution. They have one, but it's not very stable. Logging and reporting effectively would be a big enhancement.""I would like to see a better interface and better documentation compatibility with other products. It's more complicated with OWASP.""F5 Advanced WAF could improve the precision of the scanning. There are many false positives. They should improve their threat database.""The pricing could be more flexible."

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

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's more expensive than other solutions and depending on the modules, there can be additional fees."
  • "F5 bundles up services and the bundle is what you pay for rather than individual components."
  • "Its price is fair. We have done a couple of deals where they were able to give some kind of discount to the customers. The price was initially high for the customers, but after a couple of negotiations, it came within their budget. They were happy with that."
  • "There are various plans available for Fortinet FortiWeb Cloud WAF as a Service, including a trial version."
  • "It is expensive. Its price should be better. Its licensing is on a yearly basis. Its licensing is also based on the model. There are no additional costs."
  • "I don't have any issue with the pricing of this solution."
  • "There is an annual subscription for this solution."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable when compared with other products, such as FortiWeb. I am very satisfied with the price."
