We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"There is no need to have an appliance in house for the services because it is on the cloud."
"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."
"Simplifies putting everything in code."
"DDoS protection and WAF are the most valuable features. It is easy to deploy a service. It is easy and quick to deploy to a new website."
"Its unique interface for managing security performance and ease of use are the most valuable features of this solution."
"The solution has a very good interface."
"It is an effective threat mitigation tool."
"The solution's most valuable aspect is that it is easy to configure."
"They have a hybrid model approach if a client wants to go that way."
"The product integrates well with Cisco."
"The most valuable feature is the ability to create signatures on-demand."
"The pricing is reasonable. It's not overly expensive."
"It has kept us up and operational on a day-to-day basis, without being interrupted by an attack from outside sources."
"The reporting is very good and provides us with a comprehensive description of where attacks are emanating from."
"Its price could be improved. It is quite expensive. It will be good if we could export the configuration. Currently, to control the configuration, we need to go to each website, which is not very convenient."
"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."
"The rules surrounding the making of web applications could be improved."
"It's quite expensive."
"Imperva should have more points of presence in Africa."
"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 weakest point of Imperva is their first level of support, which should be improved. They should also improve the access and security logs viewing directly on the portal. I would like to see better access and security logs through the portal and not only through a SIM solution. Currently, if you want to explore your access and security logs from Imperva, you need a SIM tool or a SIM infrastructure on your side to do it. You can't do it manually or directly through the portal, which is a big problem for us. I had a call yesterday with Imperva for the roadmap, and I just told them this. They agreed that this is an improvement point from their side."
"The product could use a broader scope in the area of policies."
"I would like to see more focus on layer seven protection."
"The dashboard could be updated."
"There needs to be more reporting."
"The solution is a little more pricey than other options on the market."
"This solution may not cover all of the requirements in situations for which I am unfamiliar, and there is always room for improvement."
"This product would be improved if ongoing live monitoring with dashboards were added."
"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 on par with other solutions such as Cloudflare and Akamai."
"The cost is somewhere around $10,000 a site. For every site, you pay individually. For every DNS entry, you have you pay."
"It is not expensive compared to the other similar solutions in this category."
"It is expensive."
"The price was well over six figures."
"The Radware DefensePro was bundled together with our security platform."
"The initial cost is over $100,000 for one appliance."
"The pricing is based on the amount of network traffic and the number of packets being inspected."
