I would recommend this solution to others. It has been working fine for us, and it has all the features that we need. I would advise others to know the exact bandwidth that is required for the project because the cost is based on the bandwidth. You must evaluate the required bandwidth beforehand. I would rate Imperva Incapsula a nine out of ten. Technically, it is a very good solution.

We are just customers and end users. We're using the WAF. It's the web-based version. Whatever's the current and newest version is what we're using. I'd advise potential new users to not believe salespeople. That's kind of a standard thing across the industry, however, we were told one thing at the sales side, and then, after we purchased, it was not true what they said. That's extremely disappointing as it actually costs us tens of thousands of dollars more due to the fact that what they said could happen, how their licensing model works, doesn't work the way the sales guy said. That's a giant disappointment. Overall, the solution does what it says it will do. I'd rate it at an eight out of ten.

I would recommend this solution because I have also used different WAF and DDoS solutions. For me, it is the best solution available. It is quite simple to do the configuration. You can do whatever you want. If you know the product, you can do fine-tuning and have the configuration that you need. You need the knowledge to do this, but you can do this, and it works. Even though it is a high-cost solution, it is easy for me to sell it to customers because I know it will work. I get a little bit stressed about some of the other solutions because I don't trust those solutions like I trust Imperva. I would rate Imperva Incapsula an nine out of ten. It is quite a good solution. They can do some improvements, but it is quite a good solution.

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 to be proper authentication for authorization and the RSA (Rivest, Shamir, and Adelman, data security). During the execution of the task of onboarding, they need to be a little careful to make sure that is not creating an outage. So what I would recommend to anyone onboarding an application is that they need to go through the architecture of the application thoroughly before implementing the solution. Do not rush to the end to get it done. The best way to implement anything is by taking steps to avoid problems beforehand to end up with a result that has fewer issues. On a scale from one to ten (where one is the worst and ten is the best), I would rate Imperva Incapsula as the number one solution. There is not too much to know about it but that it is one of the best products of this type that you can get. But on a scale of one to ten, I give it a nine-out-of-ten because it is not perfect, as good as it is.

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 it's fairly simple, then there's only one thing they need there. Multiple layers mean that this solution may not be the right product. A company has to do the research to find out if there are other products that are offering more of what they want, according to their unique requirements. I'd rate the solution eight out of ten. If the solution was a bit more complete, and offered, for example, perimeter protection, I would give it higher marks.

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.

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 especially for customers who want extra security for their web presence. On a scale from one to ten where one is the worst and ten is the best, I would rate the Incapsula product overall as a nine-out-of-ten.

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 products that they sell. I would rate the solution seven out of ten. It's more than one issue that has me rating it at seven. It's quite a big solution, so it's hard to get a smaller company to buy it. They don't have people in Sweden either. That's really important for us, because it's harder for Swedish companies to be serious about the product when there's a lot of other vendors that have local people, and that's preferred by clients.

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 much to maintain the product.

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 our needs so we end up paying for data that we don't use. I want them to provide me with the particular quantity of megabytes I need. I don't want to pay extra money for megabytes that I will not use in the future. I rate this program nine out of ten.

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.

Only configure it by enabling all protections. This is very important for preventing attacks.
