Pricing and Cost Advice
"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."

"We have all the licenses, which we pay for annually. The price is a little high, but the product is good.""They have introduced new price models, which makes the product more affordable now.""The price is very high but compared to the price of the overall solution, then I think it's a good deal because the solution itself is great.""It is very expensive.""This is an expensive solution and the price should be reduced."
