Cons
"The product could be improved on the global load and the integration with the other solution like Cisco and Dell. As a representor of the operation, we prefer to have one platform which can accommodate all type of integration. We are also looking for more improvements in the security policy configuration.""You need to have Linux knowledge in order to use the shell.""In terms of the scalability, this part is always so confusing because they are checking for packet count. Also, after an attack, they said that the throughput must be from gigabits but then I check my bandwidth and it is already done in gigabits. So it is a little bit confusing."

"The solution needs to improve Integration with third parties for their on-prem deployment models. The integration is not that good yet.""Analytics in the area of risk need to be improved to supply more information to the users for creating better environments.""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.""The rules surrounding the making of web applications could be improved.""Imperva should have more points of presence in Africa.""I would like to have support for SSL management and secure DNS.""The log analytics interface within Incapsula isn't really good. For example, if you have to get all logs from there, it's a very cumbersome process.""It's quite expensive."

Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"The data packages are higher than our needs so we end up paying for data that we don't use.""The cost is on par with other solutions such as Cloudflare and Akamai.""It is not expensive compared to the other similar solutions in this category.""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."
