There are some features that are configured by default, so even without doing much, it can still provide a level of protection.

If you are using the appliance as opposed to the virtual deployment, it can stand as the network layer-two and provide real transparency.

Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewall Cons

Information Security Advisor, CISO & CIO, Docutek Services at Docutek Services
There could be some limitations that from the converged infrastructure perspective: when you want to converge with everything and you want Imperva to get there easily because it's not a cloud component. For example, when you want to build servers and you're using OneView to manage your software-defined networks, implementing Imperva right away is not that simple. But if you're doing just a simple cloud infrastructure with servers in there, you're good to go. Also, we are not able, with Imperva, to block by signatures. Imperva by itself needs to be complemented with another service to do URL filtering.

It would be helpful to have a "recommended deployment", or even a list of basic features that should either be used or turned on by default.

The initial setup could be simplified. Every time you have to install the solution you have to get in touch with support or somebody that can to do that for you.

It would be useful if the solution used more intelligence in attack protection. For example, firewalls are to be dependent on the configuration, but if they could have some data science around it the solution would be even better. The profiling of the traffic, and making decisions surrounding that should be intelligence-based, instead of being based on the configuration of the firewall itself.
