How has it helped my organization?

It was instrumental in scanning a large inventory of databases to identify sensitive data. Using Imperva Assessment scans, we were able to identify SHR, PII & confidential data sources in a large inventory of database systems. This helped... more»

What needs improvement?

I would like to see a better web management console; the UI is not very intuitive, unless you really know what you’re doing. And scan error details should be readable from the web console, instead of running Unix commands on the backend... more»

What is most valuable?

I believe the most valuable feature is the GUI. It is still very much oversized for the job it does, but in comparison to other alternatives, it is still the best at the moment.

How has it helped my organization?

Before SecureSphere was used, the native auditing tools were used, and now there is a segregation of duties when managing audit data from DBAs and DBS teams. It is a much more secure way to have audit data from databases and to monitor... more»

What needs improvement?

Mainframe mappings/agents/optimization for CPU usage are areas with room for improvement. Agent on z/OS does not have a limit for CPU usage like on other platforms.
