Cons
"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 solution could use more analytics on the backend to give us more insights into everything. More reports would be helpful.""Technical support is lacking.""There are some issues with the CDN services.""The solution could work at being less expensive. It costs a lot to use it.""Latencies are always a problem.""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."
