We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"There are key things that are used for our enterprise customers, such as Lambda and DNS."
"It's very user-friendly."
"It is easier to configure and develop documentation to see how we have configured firewalls."
"The most valuable feature is the web application firewall."
"The DDoS protection is the most valuable aspect of the solution."
"New and innovative way to protect the client's data."
"The solution is very good at mitigating threats."
"From what I've seen so far, there are no negatives to report as of yet"
"Simplifies putting everything in code."
"Its unique interface for managing security performance and ease of use are the most valuable features of this solution."
"There is no need to have an appliance in house for the services because it is on the cloud."
"The technical support is excellent."
"There are quite a few useful Imperva Incapsula features. For example, one of them is the reports. The graphics are very good and it's easy to configure. The whole process is very fast and reliable too. They have good tech support as well."
"The solution has a very good interface."
"The solution is very good at intercepting traffic before it gets to our data centers."
"The solution's most valuable aspect is that it is easy to configure."
"The solution could work at being less expensive. It costs a lot to use it."
"Technical support is lacking."
"Although I think it's quite good, it doesn't provide me with all the features I would expect to have if I were using Imperva."
"There are some issues with the CDN services."
"Latencies are always a problem."
"The solution could use more analytics on the backend to give us more insights into everything. More reports would be helpful."
"It should have easier documentation for the configuration. It's very technical and people who aren't technical should also be able to do the configuration."
"There should be a specific price list for enterprise-level customers."
"The log analytics interface within Incapsula isn't really good. For example, if you have to get all logs from there, it's a very cumbersome process."
"The rules surrounding the making of web applications could be improved."
"The salespeople tend to exaggerate its capabilities, which can cost you money if you don't verify the information."
"The product could use a broader scope in the area of policies."
"Certificate management could be improved."
"Users would benefit from better documentation. There is official documentation, but sometimes we need more detail. We have some use cases that are not so run of the mill. It would be great if there was a knowledge base that we could go to for more answers."
"Imperva should have more points of presence in Africa."
"A limited tool if you're looking to customize."
"The cost primarily depends on the size of the organization."
"The price is reasonable."
"We don't have any issues with the price."
"It is not expensive compared to the other similar solutions in this category."
"It is expensive."
"It is a very expensive solution. The price is very high. A lot of customers tell us that they would love to use Imperva more. I have some customers who have 50 websites, but they have only 10 websites on Imperva because of the price. They would love to have all their websites running through Imperva, but they can't. They have to choose the more critical websites to protect because the price is very high. It is a very good product, but it is too expensive. If you buy a plan for 20 megabytes and you don't consume all of your 20 megabytes, it is okay, but if you consume more, you are charged for the superior traffic."
"The cost is somewhere around $10,000 a site. For every site, you pay individually. For every DNS entry, you have you pay."
"The cost is on par with other solutions such as Cloudflare and Akamai."
