Etienne WEHRLECDN & Cybersecurity Engineer - Web performance & security at CDN Tech / Ecritel
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"TSL and SSL offloading are both very good features."
"The most valuable feature is its simplicity."
"Content caching and content compression are good features."
"Simple to use and easy to integrate."
"The most valuable feature is the SSL offloading capacity."
"I like the user-friendly interface."
"The solution has a very good interface."
"It is an effective threat mitigation tool."
"The technical support is excellent."
"The most valuable features for us are the DDoS and Bot."
"The solution's most valuable aspect is that it is easy to configure."
"It blocks all types of attacks."
"There is no need to have an appliance in house for the services because it is on the cloud."
"FortiADC is complex to configure so the interface should be improved."
"It would be good if they built in a fully functional web application firewall."
"Technical support and documentation could both be improved."
"Issues with SSL and encrypted traffic."
"The initial setup could be simplified."
"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."
"Certificate management could be improved."
"The product could use a broader scope in the area of policies."
"The weakest point of Imperva is their first level of support, which should be improved. They should also improve the access and security logs viewing directly on the portal. I would like to see better access and security logs through the portal and not only through a SIM solution. Currently, if you want to explore your access and security logs from Imperva, you need a SIM tool or a SIM infrastructure on your side to do it. You can't do it manually or directly through the portal, which is a big problem for us. I had a call yesterday with Imperva for the roadmap, and I just told them this. They agreed that this is an improvement point from their side."
"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."
"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."
