Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"This is a stable product.""It has a very user-friendly interface that's very detailed.""The cyber intelligence feature is the most valuable.""They have very good documentation and knowledgebase resources that add to the depth of their support.""Currently, we have audit features for auditing databases, for example, granular auditing, which we really enjoy. We've been using it to check what users do.""The beauty of it is that it provides segregation of duties. Typically, in the traditional environment, DBAs administer the database, and they have too much access. We are in the process of implementing other Oracle solutions, and it brings some kind of segregation. Just because someone is a DBA does not mean that he or she should have access to all of the data. Some of the data can be masked so that privacy and security are enhanced, especially when it is customer data for an institution like a bank.""The integration with CounterBreach is great.""The technical support for Imperva is super, super, super."

The reporting feature is currently not good enough for our clients.""The updates could be better."
