We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Compared to other web application firewalls in the market, Imperva does things in the most accurate way."
"If you are using the appliance as opposed to the virtual deployment, it can stand as the network layer-two and provide real transparency."
"Its inline transferring mode is the most valuable because it is 100% transparent. When you change the IP, there is no change on the network side. If you can't and want to try to reach an IP, you can reach the server IP. There are many other advanced security features in it. The smallest appliances of Imperva can handle the highest traffic at a customer site. For example, a smaller appliance from Imperva can provide you the same security as an F5 product."
"The most important feature I have found to be the ease in how to do the backup and restores."
"The solution has been quite stable. I have not seen any bugs at all."
"The solution can scale."
"The solution is stable."
"It has fewer false positives"
"The features that mitigate attacks are very valuable."
"Security is one of the most valuable features that I like. It is easy to use and easy to configure."
"I like the concept of self-service, that I can do everything on my own."
"The product offers high availability."
"I think that better bot protection is needed in this solution."
"The user interface could be better."
"They can provide an option to create reports, automatically import the entire report, and create rules again. In a real-life crisis, it would be helpful to be able to import a report and generate security rules from that report. I should be able to create a simple query and import the reports automatically. It can maybe also tell us the format of the report."
"The process to upgrade from one version to another can be a lot simpler than it is currently."
"Sometimes our web application firewall will slow down."
"In the past, I have bugs on the WAF. I've contacted Imperva about them. Future releases should be less buggy."
"I loved the approach of the cloud. The cloud has a lot of new features, like advanced web protection and DDoS protection. If those could also be on-boarded onto the on-prem versions, that would be ideal. They need to pay attention to both deployment options and not just favor one."
"The support for the on-premises version needs improvement."
"The GUI needs to be improved. Right now, the solution isn't so user-friendly."
"Support is very important because if we get good support, we'll be able to sell and supply more numbers."
"You need to have pretty good internal knowledge of the 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."
"There is a license for this solution and we purchase the license annually with no additional fees."
"There are a couple of different licensing models."
