If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering Imperva Incapsula, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
I would rate this solution a seven out of ten.
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.
