Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The most valuable feature is the DDoS protection, which is the main reason we got it.""The solution can scale extremely well.""The most valuable feature is the custom rules feature. This is because many of our customers require a lot of custom rules. Because it's a very customized project for our customers, I think they have the best of everything already.""The CDN and the WAF features are the best.""The features are powerful and better than F5.""I like that the charges are all based on usage and labor costs. For the time that we spend onboarding almost 252020 FQDN, Akamai charges us only for the traffic usage, but it's only charging us for the labor costs for onboarding."

Cons
"The interface is a little bit clunky and can be improved.""It would be better if there weren't any issues with latency. We had latency issues, but I think they are all solved now.""They are already very flexible, but room for improvement is there. Reports generation could be better and should be improved.""Support and the pricing need to improve.""Could integrate more features for each security.""The pricing could be reduced a bit."
