What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is that it is cloud-based and we do not need to have an appliance for it in house.

What needs improvement?

I do not see any big problems with the product. Imperva has had a lot of experience developing this product platform and it seems appropriate for my use cases. There are a few places where it can be improved. An area of improvement that I… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

In my opinion, Imperva Incapsula is not expensive compared to the other similar solutions in this category.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

For web application firewalls we are actually currently using more than one solution. We are using both Imperva and AWS. Which solution that we use depends upon the environment and depends on the situation. So we are using both solutions… more »

What other advice do I have?

I have some advice for people who are considering using Imperva. When onboarding an application, they need to be careful with their other infrastructure and systems. The concern is in part to make sure they do not have conflicts. There has… more »

What is most valuable?

For this part of the world, several things are important. It is important that the clients have the features which they get to use to get against bad traffic, of course as this is the reason for the product. But especially for customers in this region, it is also the opportunity to use the service… more »

What needs improvement?

If I had the opportunity to recommend an enhancement to Imperva it would be to have more POP (Point of Presence) in East and West Africa, and in Central Africa as well. There is only one POP in South Africa. There are other ones are in Europe, America, and Asia and sometimes the latency can be an… more »

What other advice do I have?

I am not an expert in every solution of this type, but I have a pretty good idea of what makes them work as a good solution based on customer needs. I do not do the implementation because I am more in a position of doing pre-sales and consultancy. I would highly recommend Imperva Incapsula… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I do have experience with Imperva SecureSphere. I am working with various solutions that have various features and how these solutions work for different customers. For one customer, I was trying to do some research to see if they should replace Trustwave WAF with a different solution because the… more »

What is most valuable?

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. It also has the ability to integrate with other firewalls. That's really important today. Most end-users are looking for something that can integrate… more »

What needs improvement?

The solution needs to ensure they are compliant and can show the customer in a visual way, like a ticked box, that they are protected. They need to ensure their solution is showcasing if their system is getting attacked so clients know if or when they are under attack. Clients also often complain… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing depends on the client. Usually, it's yearly, but we do offer monthly financing. The only thing I hear complaints about is that in some cases clients want to be able to scale down. They don't want to buy everything. That could be, in Sweden anyway, a big problem, because they need to… more »

What other advice do I have?

I'm a distributor for this product. With the ease of implementation, I think is a good product. A lot of the other products need a lot of professional services to make it work. With this solution, it's very, very easy to implement, which is a strong selling point. They also have a good range of… more »

What is most valuable?

The solution's most valuable aspect is that it is easy to configure. The solution keeps itself up to date itself and there's no customization that we need to do. It makes it extremely easy and cut back on the amount of work required, and saves us on man-hours. The initial setup is fairly easy.

What needs improvement?

The log analytics interface within Incapsula isn't really good. For example, if you have to get all logs from there, it's a very cumbersome process. The solution doesn't seem to come with any other additional features. There are other products in the market today that give you an overall network perimeter protection. Incapsula is good for what it is, but it can expand its horizon a lot if it… more »

What other advice do I have?

We're simply a customer. We don't have a business relationship with the company at this time. We use the product ourselves. We aren't resellers or integrators. I'd advise other companies, based on the scale of the organization and complexity, that if one has to choose a product, a company cannot choose a product from someone else's say so. It would depend on how complex their network design is. If… more »

What is most valuable?

The most valuable features for our organization are auditing capabilities and compliances. The product meets the needs of our business model and we can see the health of the architecture at a glance. There are some instances where a client needs to meet with compliances in their industry, and this… more »

How has it helped my organization?

The product improves our organization by defending infrastructures from malicious behaviors. It also allows us to provide a reliable product to our clients who need a similar solution.

What needs improvement?

One thing that they really could improve on is the depth of the analytics. The company needs to think more about the risk and analytic side of the application to supply the user with more information to evaluate and use in resolving issues. It is good to be able to depend on the product to provide a… more »

What other advice do I have?

On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate the Incapsula platform as somewhere between an eight to nine. The obvious fault is the lack of better reporting. However, it is a good, functional product and we recommend it to clients who will not have to do very… more »

What is most valuable?

I found that it is very easy to set everything up. I like the user-friendly interface.

What needs improvement?

I think the pricing needs some tweaks.

What other advice do I have?

Because we are resellers, we prefer that our customers use it. But even if I wasn't a reseller, I would still recommend it. I love the solution's capabilities and the ease of the installation. In the future, I would like to see better pricing. E.x. the additional bandwidth packages are higher than… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We compared this with other solutions like Akamai, but it couldn't deliver the same as Imperva Incapsula. We don't use specific application tweaks. We only use basic mechanisms of cashing and six years ago, when we were looking for a solution, there was no solution like this one out there. Incapsula… more »

What is most valuable?

The most important aspect of the solution is the DDoS feature. The solution has a very good interface. Last year, the solution added a lot of additional improvements and functionalities, and for now, the features they have offered us have been great. They recently added some account takeover… more »

What needs improvement?

The rules surrounding the making of web applications could be improved.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We didn't previously work with a different solution. We've partnered with Imperva so we're dealing only with them.

What other advice do I have?

We're resellers of the solution. Typically the solution is deployed with the help of DNS. It's a good product. It's one of the best on the market. If a company can afford the solution, they should try it out. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten.

What is most valuable?

The solution has good DDoS protection, and some good common features, such as no attack surfaces, parameter sanitization, and attack analytics.

What needs improvement?

The dashboard of the solution is complex. It is complex in the sense that there are too many options. There are two types of Incapsula dashboards. One is the on-prem version and one is cloud-based. Cloud-based is okay. The on-prem one needs some work. The solution needs to improve Integration with third parties for their on-prem deployment models. The integration is not that good yet.

What other advice do I have?

We are Imperva partners, so we work with clients that use different deployment models, including on-premises and cloud. I'd recommend to those considering implementation to look at your organization's requirements and then compare your options. I would rate the solution 7.5 or eight out of ten.
