What is your experience regarding pricing and costs for F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall?

Hi,

We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

Please share what you can so you can help your peers.

F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall works based on your bandwidth. They look at the clean bandwidth and do the pricing. 20% of a total pipe would be a clean bandwidth. The list price or a non-negotiated price for F5 Silverline Web Application Firewall would be around $2,200 per application per year for everything that you need. When you get into an enterprise kind of a setup, they negotiate this to the last bit. I would easily take 20% on that, which would be the cost, but it should cover all your Advance WAF features, bot protection, tech campaign, etc. It is built as a package and gives you most of the capability. You don't get the mobile SDK, which is an additional license. Mobile SDK is required only if you're buying or if you have a mobile application, and you are going to instrument F5 or Imperva into your mobile appliance. This anyways would be an additional module. It doesn't come within the WAF, but it is a WAF feature.

You have to pay for the base license. And if you need, for example, other features, like the Web Application Firewall, you need to pay for a separate license and you need to pay for the support contract. You need to renew your support contract yearly. So if that's cheaper it would be better. Just to maintain the F5 it's very costly.

The licensing can be yearly or monthly. They offer both. There aren't any other fees above the standard licensing.

You can have a look to Imperva Cloud WAF, the anti-DDoS mitigation is under 1s and works very well. I observed a lot of DDoS attacks that were well managed (even not seen by the customer) by Imperva, I can recommend it (try it with a trial, you'll be able to have your own opinion).
