“Due to Avi’s granular multi-tenancy, RBAC and user-friendly interface we can now provide access to this important infrastructure component for the vast majority of our support staff. This greatly reduces the time needed for customer issues to get fixed and get changes applied.” 

Stefan De Kooter, Network Engineer, Proxsys

“Appliance-based products weren’t meeting our needs, and as we evaluated alternatives, web application firewalling was our number-one consideration. We were pleasantly surprised by Avi iWAF’s simple deployment, impressive ease-of-use, and intelligent security analytics, as well as the responsiveness of the Avi team.” Joris Vuffray, Head of Network and System Mgmt,

., SWISSLOS


“We evaluated traditional and open source load balancers but they didn’t meet our agility, flexibility, and performance expectations. They did not provide a model that was operationally viable. We wanted to provide the same dev/test environment capabilities to the development teams even in a production environment. Avi met all of these capabilities and added analytics on top!” Nate Baechtold, IT Architect, EBSCO Information Services.
