Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"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.""This is a stable product.""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 features of Imperva SecureSphere Database Security are vulnerability assessment, enrichment security policy, and security""It has a very user-friendly interface that's very detailed.""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."

"Transfer and vulnerability scanning are the most valuable features of this product."

More Trustwave DbProtect Pros →

"Imperva SecureSphere Database Security can improve something in all the versions I have used.""The updates could be better.""It is very expensive. Its price can be better.""Some cloud versions are not supported by the agent.""Sometimes the reports are cumbersome, and you have to drill down to get more information.""They can maybe look at its pricing model. Its pricing could be cheaper for the African countries or developing economies.""Reporting could be improved.""Imperva SecureSphere Database Security could improve the database defense feature called camouflage. This feature was responsible for the data mask but now it does not work well and we need another solution. All our banks have teams that are regarded with care and they need to mask sensitive data in order to provide testing to developers."

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."
