The most valuable features of the Imperva Web Application Firewall are performance and flexibility. We can extend or customize the box itself.

The most valuable features of the Imperva Web Application Firewall are DDoS, malware, and the other malicious threat prevention it provides. Additionally, third-party integration is available. You can forward the log for further analysis.

One good thing about Imperva Web Application Firewall is it can be on the cloud and also it can be on-premise.

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.

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 most important feature I have found to be the ease in how to do the backup and restores.

Its inline transferring mode is the most valuable because it is 100% transparent. When you change the IP, there is no change on the network side. If you can't and want to try to reach an IP, you can reach the server IP. There are many other advanced security features in it.

The smallest appliances of Imperva can handle the highest traffic at a customer site. For example, a smaller appliance from Imperva can provide you the same security as an F5 product.

If you are using the appliance as opposed to the virtual deployment, it can stand as the network layer-two and provide real transparency.

There are some features that are configured by default, so even without doing much, it can still provide a level of protection.
