Simple to use, but the price could be improved
Pros and Cons
  • "Cloudflare is simple to use."
  • "Our customers no longer use Cloudflare because its service is subpar."

What is most valuable?

Cloudflare is simple to use.

What needs improvement?

Cloudflare is similar to a toolbox. It's simple to handle the box, but it's a different story when it comes to handling the tools. The same is true for Amazon. That is true for all companies. The majority of them have it. They will sell you a toolbox, but you must know how to use it.

Cloudflare isn't all bad. We have customers who are getting rid of Imperva because they can't find anyone who knows anything about it. Our customers no longer use Cloudflare because its service is subpar.

There's another company, Sucuri, that has excellent customer support, but you don't buy it because you don't want to talk to customer support. Customer support is not something you want to purchase. You're supposed to buy something without requiring customer support, which is the main point.

The same goes for Fortinet. While I am not familiar with the machine, it can cost a lot of money sometimes, $300,000 for a medium-sized business. Furthermore, you will require a full-time employee in your office who is knowledgeable. Dependent on the skill level today's resources can range from 80 to 150.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

You don't want to pay. The price tag is no longer $200,000, but rather $300,000 to $400,000. It's twice.

What other advice do I have?

The industry is changing right now. There is artificial intelligence. You have blockchain, and Quantum is on the way. It's there and on its way. So there is a significant shift in that area, of cyber security.

And, on top of that, there is a global shortage of 3.5 million security experts or professionals.

You are not an expert in your first year. People believe they are experts because they have a certification or something similar. Experts do not behave in this manner. Expert in dealing with a crisis. To become an expert, you must go through many crises. However, people are now claiming to be experts simply because they can scan something.

I would rate Cloudflare DDoS a seven out of ten.

Disclosure: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
