Information Not Available
"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.""It is not expensive compared to the other similar solutions in this category.""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 expensive."
