- Faultless inlining & minification: Every competing product breaks the layout, but we are yet to see Incapsula break a site
- Installation requires just a CNAME entry, avoiding the risk of email downtime.
- Instant PCI compliance and protection from the OWASP Top 10 vulnerabilities.
- CDN & DDoS protection.
Improvements to My Organization
Incapsula delivers a massive improvement to website performance and security in less than 20 minutes, regardless of the CMS. We love it so much that we decided to create a new service around this product, which could result in our largest income stream yet.
Room for Improvement
They once terminated a free account without warning, resulting in a few days downtime. But you get what you pay for.
Use of Solution
I have been using it for two years.
I have not encountered any stability issues.
I have not encountered any scalability issues.
Customer Service and Technical Support
Technical support is first class. These guys are sharp.
We moved from CloudFlare because Incapsula’s minification was faultless, and their CNAME installation procedure avoided downtime for other services such as email.
It was very easy to set up: 20 minutes and you're done.
Pricing, Setup Cost and Licensing
Go for the $59/month Pro plan. Free accounts can get terminated, and the higher plans are only if you like to have your own SSL certificate, or get regular DDoS attacks. The Pro plan has everything you need; it's just that you're using Imperva's SSL certificate, not yours.
Other Solutions Considered
Before choosing this product, we evaluate other options in great detail. We looked at CloudFlare, W3 Total Cache, WP Super Cache, Wordfence, BulletProof Security, Varnish, Mod_Security, ConfigServer, and a variety of other options. Incapsula isn't the cheapest, but is way in front of the competition. You'll easily spend double/triple the cost of your Incapsula subscription on maintaining any other solution, whereas Incapsula handles all that overhead for you, right out of the box.
Don't wait till you've been hacked; get protected now. It'll cost you at least a year of Incapsula fees to recover from website hacking. And if your website is running slow, Google is probably already penalising your site, when the fix is so easy. Incapsula is by far the fastest fix for both website speed and security.
