Cons
"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.

"It's a complicated tool to keep.""Their portal is very limited and needs improvement.""It would be helpful to have a "recommended deployment", or even a list of basic features that should either be used or turned on by default.""The initial setup could be simplified. Every time you have to install the solution you have to get in touch with support or somebody that can to do that for you.""Some of the features should be included in the next release is a file integrating monitoring tool. This feature should be improved.""It would be useful if the solution used more intelligence in attack protection. For example, firewalls are to be dependent on the configuration, but if they could have some data science around it the solution would be even better. The profiling of the traffic, and making decisions surrounding that should be intelligence-based, instead of being based on the configuration of the firewall itself.""I think that better bot protection is needed in this solution.""The user interface could be better."

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."

More Imperva Incapsula Pricing and Cost Advice »

"Everybody complains about the price of this solution.""The cost of this solution depends on the platform.""The price of this solution is a little bit high compared to competitors.""There are some licenses that you have to buy to use some features. Its price could be better. Price is always important because, at the end of the day, customers have a budget. If you can meet the budget, you can sell, and if you don't, you cannot sell."
