There are a number of reasons to select AWS WAF. Most importantly, it easy to deploy. It helps programmers to protect against a wide range of vulnerabilities like injection attacks, DDoS, and many others from OWASP top 10. It allows us to set up rules and blocks any threats based on the configured rules. Based on the pattern of attacks, it is always easy to add another rule.

The integration with AWS services is pretty straight forward and provides a lot of functionalities other products don't. AWS Managed Rules can be used for easy setup with high protection options or Custom Rules can be created to costomize WAF to fit our needs.

Unlike these other AWS tools, WAF provides real-time traffic control, rules that can be customized according to the needs of the user, and is based on an implementation in the cloud which avoids the use of memory on computers as well as an account with a very affordable cost for any user or company.

The use of this software was decided on because it is much easier to manage since the rules that are implemented can be specific or centralized. We also like it because you only pay for what you used.

Imperva SecureSphere requires a much higher learning curve.

We evaluated Imperva, but we were more convinced with AWS WAF because of the better pricing model, ease of deployment as we were already using the AWS platform which helping in ease of integration. The technical support for AWS WAF seemed to be better as they had better understanding of the overall system and architecture of the product, which helped us in getting a problem solved that was encountered while using AWS WAF. The amount of documentation and helpful material available online for AWS WAF made it the first choice for us to select this product over Imperva.
