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

Pros
I like the user-friendly interface.They're quite easy to install and quite easy to set up. Clients really like that. Especially when you're dealing with the cloud, it's really easy.This product is a reliable defense from malicious attacks on a network environment.Scalability is pretty easy on the base platform. You just add another, and you're ready to go.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.

We chose this solution in the first place because it has access to Layer 7. I can control the requests and the content, which I can access on my network if I want to even if it's forbidden access to other external resources. If I want to monitor, for example, traffic, and apply this rule on Layer 7, I can do so. This was our main goal when implementing this application. We wanted to take advantage of the Gateway capabilities.

Cons
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.Analytics in the area of risk need to be improved to supply more information to the users for creating better environments.The solution needs to improve Integration with third parties for their on-prem deployment models. The integration is not that good yet.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.

The pricing of the solution is a bit high. The solution should offer different pricing systems.

Pricing and Cost Advice
The data packages are higher than our needs so we end up paying for data that we don't use.​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.
