Cons
"Technical support is somewhat slow and could be improved.""If we decide to migrate to the cloud, I don't think that BIG-IP is a good solution and we probably won't use it.""The pricing could always be better. It's a bit expensive.""Reporting could be improved and configuration made easier.""The initial setup can take a long time.""The solution could improve the documentation.""This is a very expensive solution.""The logging features are too limited and do not give us a solid understanding of what's happening."

"It would be great if there were a dashboard that is more user-friendly.""The reporting has a very limited customization capability.""I would like for them to add proxy filtering, where you can transfer and alter the package. It is fully automated. Other web application testers programs are actually proxy software, and the proxy software gives you the flexibility of modifying the outgoing package, which will actually help you in exploiting any vulnerability in detail."
