Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The initial setup is very simple.""It has a very user-friendly interface that's very detailed.""The company focuses on and has a passion for security.""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 technical support for Imperva is super, super, super.""The performance of the solution is good.""The cyber intelligence feature is the most valuable.""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."

Cons
"Some cloud versions are not supported by the agent.""Sometimes the reports are cumbersome, and you have to drill down to get more information.""It is quite expensive. I would prefer a lower price.""Reporting could be improved.""The solution is expensive.""The updates could be better.""I would like to see integration such that there is support for different kinds of environments, such as on-premises versus cloud.""Overall, it's a very good product but they could do with some modifications log-wise."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "They have introduced new price models, which makes the product more affordable now."
  • "The price is very high but compared to the price of the overall solution, then I think it's a good deal because the solution itself is great."
  • "It is very expensive."
  • "This is an expensive solution and the price should be reduced."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable and it requires a license."
  • "It is quite expensive. We wanted it in my former organization, but the price was very high. So, we couldn't purchase it. I moved to a different organization, and this organization has purchased it."
  • "Its pricing could be cheaper for the African countries or developing economies. The British pound is valued way more than the currency of most African countries. A better or cheaper pricing model for Nigerian and African customers would be better. It has a per-year subscription model. You pay exactly for what you need. That's all. You don't have to buy what you don't need."
  • "Imperva SecureSphere Database Security was quite expensive several years ago, but now they provide a subscription plan for licensing. It is available now for smaller and medium-sized companies, not only large enterprises."
