We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
Provides Anti-DDoS protection, as well as other protections like SQL injection, Cross-Site Scripting, and antiscanner. These types of protection are valuable to the business due to the daily attacks on our portals, and that often cannot be seen without a tool like this.Setup was straightforward, very simple. I only entered the domain and Incapsula returned the DNS data that I needed to change for the protection to be configured.On the site security, I can see which countries have incidents, whether it was a robot attack, a real human user, or non-human user.On the activity log, I can see the exact details, the visit, and the threat.The dashboard is good and user-friendly.On the real time, you can see live traffic, which is flowing into our website.We have peace of mind that nobody will use malware on us or try to hack our website.The complete solution is valuable for everything it delivers and the protection it offers.

The compliance is the most valuable aspect.It has threat intelligence and we are using Incapsula. With threat intelligence, we can separate HTTP and HTTPS traffic. We can use Incapsula to send all the threat intelligence to the WAF.Learning mode and custom policies are helpful features.Very intuitive and granular configuration - It does not require much time, or advanced knowledge, for configuration and maintenance.

Cons
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.I am not sure if this application has a policy where you can create your custom policy and run it as our firewall. We should have some ability to also create some custom policy, then run it as a firewall.I miss being able to integrate the dashboard with other BI tools we are using. We have to export and import data to be able to present it, and doing so is a lot of work.It would be better if we were able to manage and apply changes to multiple websites/web applications, and search WAF logs for multiple websites, via the Incapsula dashboard.

It's a complicated tool to keep.There could be some limitations that from the converged infrastructure perspective: when you want to converge with everything and you want Imperva to get there easily because it's not a cloud component. For example, when you want to build servers and you're using OneView to manage your software-defined networks, implementing Imperva right away is not that simple. But if you're doing just a simple cloud infrastructure with servers in there, you're good to go. Also, we are not able, with Imperva, to block by signatures. Imperva by itself needs to be complemented with another service to do URL filtering.The reporting is missing some features, such as: only two export formats, and the time period does not include the last day, week, year.

Pricing and Cost Advice
​Although the pricing can be a little high, it is worth the protection and security that it offers.​For enterprise contracts you will be in touch with a dedicated account manager who will guide you regarding licensing.

Make sure you understand the way that Imperva charges. It's very affordable. However, I would like to see a package with the Virtual Patching included. You get to do patching separately.
