Overall Satisfaction with AWS WAF

AWS WAF was one pilot proof of concept solution we used to mitigate exploits as they pertain to our internal applications. We saw an increase in attacks on our applications and we wanted to find something we could easily use to fight against that.
  • Setup rules that allow you to filter web traffic.
  • Mitigates against vulnerabilities out in the wild.
  • Protects against several different attacks.
  • Would like to see a better price point.
  • Somewhat limited in the number of rules that can be set up.
  • Board members like that more apps can be used by our students now where couldn't before.
  • Liked how easy it was to use for non-tech staff.
Amazon's support was better for us in the end. Implementation was also easier as we're using other Amazon services currently.
Amazon's support has been better by far as compared to other web filtering services we have piloted.

Do you think AWS WAF delivers good value for the price?

Not sure

Are you happy with AWS WAF's feature set?

Yes

Did AWS WAF live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of AWS WAF go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy AWS WAF again?

Yes

AWS WAF was well suited for us (a school district) as we have several home-grown apps that access several outside our firewall websites and it helped guard against attacks.
