Pros
"The initial setup is very simple.""This is a stable product.""It has a user-friendly interface. It is a stable and scalable product.""It has a very user-friendly interface that's very detailed.""There are three major main use cases of this solution. The first one is to fulfill compliance regulations. Customers—especially the banks, health sector, and manufacturing—need to comply with the regulations in different countries. They have to fulfill compliance regulations around the privacy of data. In order to fulfill those requirements, they're using Imperva. It helps them to fulfill these requirements, and they are not fined by the regulators. That is the first use case why people buy Imperva.""The most valuable feature is the automatic reports on new databases, which gives us up-to-date inventory management.""The discovery module provides good visibility.""The audit feature is great. It is totally encrypted."

Cons
"Its reporting can be improved. The reporting feature is currently not good enough for our clients.""Reporting could be improved.""They can maybe look at its pricing model. Its pricing could be cheaper for the African countries or developing economies.""Imperva SecureSphere Database Security can improve something in all the versions I have used.""Overall, it's a very good product but they could do with some modifications log-wise.""Some cloud versions are not supported by the agent.""Sometimes the reports are cumbersome, and you have to drill down to get more information.""I would like to see integration such that there is support for different kinds of environments, such as on-premises versus cloud."

"Stability could be improved, we have had some challenges""Currently, you need two servers: one for Audit Vault and one for the firewall. If they can combine them into one server, it will be great because it is costly to have two servers. It will also make its installation easier. I have heard that in the new version, there will be only one server for both."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "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."
  • "The price of the solution is reasonable. The cost of the solution depends on the customer, they have the flex protect licensing which can vary in price."
