We performed a comparison between Imperva Web Application Firewall and Rapid7 AppSpider based on real PeerSpot user reviews.Find out what your peers are saying about Palo Alto Networks, Fortinet, F5 and others in Web Application Firewall (WAF).
"There are a number of features that are valuable such as the account takeover and various antivirus features."
"One good thing about Imperva Web Application Firewall is it can be on the cloud and also it can be on-premise."
"The most important feature I have found to be the ease in how to do the backup and restores."
"The configurability of the tools and the ease of operation to be the most valuable feature of Imperva."
"The most valuable features of Imperva Web Application Firewall are the monitoring of databases and the dashboards are easy to understand."
"Very scalable and very stable firewall for web applications, with a good interface in its cloud version. Mitigation is its most valuable feature. The technical support for this product is also good."
"The solution integrates seamlessly with other tools and has a good alert mechanism."
"Configuration for different application sources is most valuable. We can segregate the traffic that an application is carrying and identify the sizing in Imperva."
"The setup is usually straightforward."
"The initial deployment is very straightforward and simple. The product is stable if configured properly."
"What I like most about AppSpider is that it's easy to use and its automated scan gives me all the details I need to know when it comes to vulnerabilities and their solutions."
"AppSpider's most valuable feature is reporting - everything is stored in the local database so it can be sent to other machines."
"It should be more user-friendly. Like other web solutions, it would be helpful to be able to easily do policy configuration and identification inside the application. Understanding the in-depth configuration of a policy is somewhat difficult for an engineer, and they can improve that."
"An improvement for Imperva WAF would be to reduce the number of false positives and create more strong use cases based on AI/ML or behavioral analytics."
"They recently separated the WAF and the DAM management gateways in order for each of these to be managed from different areas, so I believe it now requires additional investments for what was previously a single complete solution."
"It would be nice to have more security control over mobile applications so I would suggest adding more mobile security features. It would also be beneficial to see improvements in regards to interface bandwidth performance, CPU time, and RAM size. Learning capability of the device is quite weak."
"In the past, I have bugs on the WAF. I've contacted Imperva about them. Future releases should be less buggy."
"The solution works for particular zones but isn't always the best solution for all zones."
"The support for the on-premises version needs improvement."
"The Imperva Web Application Firewall automations are good, but there is still room for improvement with them."
"AppSpider has some problems with the RAM needed while scanning."
"One of the challenges I have with AppSpider is that it gives you a lot of false positives, especially when compared to other solutions."
"Integration could be better."
"There are some glitches with stability, and it is an area for improvement."
