Rated 5 out of 5 by reviewer953256 from Reliable, easy to set up, and can increase your security score What is our primary use case? My primary use case of this solution is as a web application firewall. How has it helped my organization? Kemp mitigated our cross-scripting vulnerabilities, cookie-related issues, and content security policy issues. Instead of working on each application, we can do everything with Kemp. In addition, using Kemp has raised our site score from average to fully-secured. What is most valuable? The most valuable feature is that Kemp can be integrated with our active directory, so then we can use ESP. Then SSL certificates can be hosted or deployed from Kemp rather than going through the application. What needs improvement? The UI is very basic and not very attractive, so this could be an area for improvement. In the next release, I would like to see global load balancing and the ability to connect to networks not physically attached to the individual device (VPNs or point-to-point connections, for example). For how long have I used the solution? I have been using this solution for three years. What do I think about the stability of the solution? Kemp is very reliable. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? I had some difficulty getting the correct load balances, but it's very reliable otherwise. How are customer service and support? I have had no issues at all with their support team. Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch? I previously used an open-source version of this solution, but it was very hard to maintain and suffered frequent crashes, so we switched to Kemp for better reliability. I also used Citrix, but the use case for it is completely different than for Kemp. How was the initial setup? The initial setup was very straightforward, requiring only around an hour of configuration. What about the implementation team? A team wasn't required because the product is straightforward. What was our ROI? Our aim in implementing Kemp was to improve our security posture and increase our security ratings because we were losing business due to our rating being a bit low. Once we implemented Kemp and shared our new security scorecard, our projects got extended, so I believe that Kemp has helped to bring us more business. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? We pay around $10,000 a year for licensing. There are no additional costs. Which other solutions did I evaluate? I evaluated the on-premises version of Citrix but found Kemp to be more helpful, while Citrix was more expensive and not very user-friendly. What other advice do I have? Each and every organization that hosts applications should have this solution. I would rate this solution as nine out of ten. Which deployment model are you using for this solution? Hybrid Cloud If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use? Amazon Web Services (AWS) Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Olayinka Adetijanwa from Useful as an application load balancer internally and externally for load balancing of web-based software What is our primary use case? We primarily use this solution as an application load balancer internally and externally for load balancing of web-based software. What is most valuable? The pricing of the solution is valuable. What needs improvement? The ability to see live traffic is not great and can be improved. When we check live traffic via the external link, we sometimes see up to 80 concurrent connections but find it difficult to drill down into them. So although we can see 80, we can't drill down to get more information about those 80 connections. Additionally, the graphics for the solution can be improved. For how long have I used the solution? We have been using the solution for approximately three years. What do I think about the stability of the solution? The solution is stable. What do I think about the scalability of the solution? The solution is scalable. We are currently using the load balancer for six internal and external applications. During the last utilization, we noticed that we're barely doing 20%, so I believe we can have more applications. Regarding people managing and using it, 6% are in telecom and are responsible for Kemp LoadMaster, but approximately a thousand users are connecting to it internally. How are customer service and support? I rate customer service and support a ten out of ten. How would you rate customer service and support? Positive How was the initial setup? I rate the initial setup a ten out of ten. It is easy. What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing? I believe this solution has the best pricing in the market. It is a corporate price. What other advice do I have? I rate the solution a nine out of ten. The solution is good, but its ability to investigate life traffic and its graphics can be improved. My advice for users considering this solution is to ensure they have adherent to deploy it. Disclaimer: I am a real user, and this review is based on my own experience and opinions.
