Firstly, geolocation currently relies on manual updates. It has to move to automatic updates. There are no automatic updates for this feature. If some IPs, countries, or service providers move to another country, now you will be allow IPs that you previously denied. This is because you depend on the database, which doesn't update automatically. This is really a very important area that they need to improve.
This would be absolutely the best network security solution if the price were not so high.
We needed to protect the database but the solution didn't offer a certain feature to do so.
We would have preferred to have support when we first started
Imperva should have more points of presence in Africa.
The rules surrounding the making of web applications could be improved.
We would like them to hire people in Sweden because it's quite hard when people are sitting in the UK or Belgium because some of the customers really want them to be local.
Analytics in the area of risk need to be improved to supply more information to the users for creating better environments.
The solution needs to improve Integration with third parties for their on-prem deployment models. The integration is not that good yet.
Imperva now offers add-ons to add functionality, but I would like to see these included in the product, even if it would cost more.
Pricing and Cost Advice
It is somewhat on the expensive side although it is worth the additional cost.
