Cons
"The only challenge I see is that SecureSphere is deployed on servers or databases which are held on physical infrastructure. However, there are databases which are hosted on cloud platforms and Imperva has a separate tool altogether for that, not SecureSphere.""Integration with other databases or third-party products would be useful.""It would be better to update the solution by using a GUI that guides me, rather than through a CLI.""Technical support for this solution needs improvement.""The GUI for this solution could use some improvement.""The interface is not user-friendly.""Performance can be slow under heavy loads, but this should be adjusted by scaling.""The firewall features are not very strong and should be improved."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The cost of support for this solution is very expensive.""Licensing fees are on a yearly basis, and it is a good value for the money.""There is an annual licensing fee for upgrading the device.""Pricing is low and scalable to add features and volume.""The pricing over-all depends on the entry level. For example, if support and maintenance are about $20,000 - $25,000, the initial cost can be five times more. It is less expensive for the company to maintain the client than to make the deployment.""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."
