Cons
"Latencies are always a problem.""The solution could work at being less expensive. It costs a lot to use it.""There should be a specific price list for enterprise-level customers.""It should have easier documentation for the configuration.

More reports would be helpful.""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."
