"He has been helping us to improve our recording and surveillance system"

What do you like about Fastly?

What I like the most about Fastly is the fact that I can configure everything in a fairly quick and immediate way, the fact that I can easily configure the entire recording environment to view all the information that the recording shows me through the same interface. pages turns out to be something of great help especially to improve the televigilance circuits of my company, the fact that its interface is very simple and intuitive at the time of use turns out to be an element that is also of great help to us by allowing us to make use of the system without any problem or future inconvenience, the quality and clarity with which the video shows is something really surprising, it really seems that everything is being recorded in ultra hd.
It has been helping us to improve our recording and tele surveillance system in a very fast, simple and practical way by allowing us to use its platform to manage and organize all our tasks and activities of tracking and monitoring the information in a fairly simple way , practical and easy.

What do you dislike about Fastly?

Their customer service is the worst, they answer everything reluctantly and take too long to respond, once I happened to have a problem that made it impossible to use the program and I contacted the support service and I had to wait 2 days for them to respond, which left us completely vulnerable for two days as the surveillance system was affected.
