Likelihood to Recommend

AWS WAF

AWS WAF is highly appropriate to interrupt or prevent cyber attacks because when implementing rules, whether they are specific or centralized, so any application that has these vulnerabilities is protected.
Implementing managed rules creates greater security to protect both API and applications.If implemented along with other AWS tools, the security is much better, so if you want to protect applications against more specific attacks, it is ideal to integrate with Amazon CloudFront, which is a great benefit because it warns when thresholds are exceeded or specific attacks occur.AWS WAF is ideal to avoid common web attacks. For more specific attacks and scenarios, I don't recommend this.

Imperva Data Security

Imperva is great to monitor when new users access a database and will monitor when there are unauthorized users or activity is occurring. Imperva is not well suited to interpret whether an activity is unauthorized or not. The administrator has to be familiar with what the organization determines as good or bad traffic.

Pros

AWS WAF

  • AWS WAF has the most developer-friendly API to create firewall rules.
  • AWS WAF provides OWASP security controls, which reduces developers' burden (i.e., SQL injection and cross-site scripting).
  • AWS WAF has customizable web security rules. The user can even push the rules through the API available, which is the great feature and helped me a lot.
  • It protects applications at layer 7 (HTTP) of the OSI model and not just layer 4 (TCP).

Imperva Data Security

  • Alerts when suspicious activity is detected
  • Records all database transactions for analysis
  • Determines activities in stored procedures

Cons

AWS WAF

  • The documentation offered is somewhat confusing, so it would be ideal if it were much more direct and precise.
  • Your initial configuration may be confusing, so the best option is to use the rule templates provided by AWS.
  • Its configuration is not unified with AWS, so it must be done separately and it takes some time.
  • The number of rules to be established is somewhat limited.

Imperva Data Security

  • Alerts require a lot of tuning to get actionable intelligence
  • Certain common encryption ciphers are incompatible with Imperva and have to be disabled at the server level
  • Technical support is sometimes a little hard to work with

The product is highly scalable. It is easy to configure the rules and thereby helps us to mitigate many vulnerabilities.The interface and programming of the firewall provisions were easy to setup. Amazon clearly spent a lot of time figuring this out and perfecting it. It allows users to do customized configurations based on their needs. It provides protection against a number of security issues like XSS, SQL injection, etc. I would definitely recommend this for protecting your infra as you scale, since this basically protects and filters all requests hitting your application server.

AWS WAF

Amazon's support was better for us in the end. Implementation was also easier as we're using other Amazon services currently.

  • When protecting critical data, we can see exactly how it's being used and by whom.
  • Licensing costs are very reasonable.
  • It takes a fair amount of administration to use properly.
