"Protecting from downtime and good security"

What do you like best?

The most painful thing is website being down due to the DDOS attacks and cloudflare has kept us ahead on this front. All the DNS management is up to cloudflare. They provide good overall security for the traffic. It always balances what we are really getting not what the people might be trying to show us what we are getting in terms of traffic. It is very easy to shift to cloudflare and they have excellent support working to help customers around the clock. They have a very good proxy system and decent management for latency. They have a very good documentation about the usage of service.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes returning customers see unable to access pages. Also on the downside is it's cost which might look expensive to startups.

Recommendations to others considering the product

They provided one of the best WAF in market but you shall be sure if you really need it or not. If you are facing too many DDoS attacks I recommend using it despite of the price tag, because it can solve much of worries.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Many of our clients warned us about the downtime of our website so we tried cloudflare to resolve the issues. They have an excellent support staff which resolves all our problems whenever we have one. The configuration was super fast and the results were seen immediately.

"CloudFlare Review"

What do you like best?

It helps prevent DDoS Attacks from coming in, allowing the site to not be hit off and have a down time. It is reliable and great to use, since CloudFlare been implemented, our site has been up since we started hosting it. There's also a free version of CloudFlare for smaller companies, which is still as reliable as paid..

What do you dislike?

Cloudflare is somewhat hard to implement to our website, must change DNS Servers in order to use. Cloudflare modifies the code of your pages, slow down website, block your website and make your website crash.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a cheap DDoS Prevention Service, CloudFlare is the way to go, they also have a good free version which is really recommended for new companies.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Solved DDOS Issues, you can also monitor all your visitors & gather information about them, since many websites using cloudflare get the same IP and same DNS, and since your website finds himself with other websites that aren't as nice as yours .

What Web Application Firewall (WAF) solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"CloudFlare WAF: Protecting You From The Bad Guys"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that CloudFlare WAF blocks any suspicious incoming traffic: they challenge the visitor with a security feature. This prevents bots and any other automated scripts from trying to hack your website. I also appreciate how easy it was to set up the WAF, thanks to the user-friendly admin panel. The pre-defined rules are also pretty amazing.

What do you dislike?

False positive: one of our technicians updating our website was kicked out for accessing the IP too many times within a specified time-frame. We had to adjust the rules.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I strongly recommend.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We were able to have a secured online platform, free from any IT risks.

"Extremely nice service to be working with"

What do you like best?

I love that I am able to hide my applications behind the firewall and not have to worry a single bit about exposing my origin IP address.

What do you dislike?

There was one time that I lost my 2FA device and there's no way to recover the account or the data stored in there - I can only create a completely new account.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Great product, switching in might take some time but worth it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Server and web application security and I can deploy applications behind a secure distribution service.

" Best software for online web protection "

What do you like best?

The program provides a suite of products for optimizing website speed and security. Because of its secure and speed, it optimizes site loading much faster by acting as an intermediary between site servers and clients .

What do you dislike?

Occasionally the Reputation Threat module blocks malicious threats by identifying IP addresses and sometimes those IP aren’t always a threat. Maybe it’s due to not recognizing it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Our website runs faster and at an optimal speed that allows our customers to navigate and purchase off of our website

"CloudFlare WAF- The Ultimate Protection Against Intruders"

What do you like best?

CloudFlare WAF instantly blocks suspicious traffic: odd hours access, irregular browsing pattern, script loading and unauthorized accesses.

What do you dislike?

There is a percentage for false positive. For instance, I was once kicked out from accessing our own website, because we were performing some upgrades. This increase in load was flagged by the WAF.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend without hesitation!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Secure the website and IT systems. Benefits in terms of reputation (secured IT company).
