We are using the product across the entire organization for all of our SQL database servers. We use it primarily as a compliance tool for reporting and HiTrust certification. Our organization standards mandate that any new SQL database being configured has the Imperva Data Security agent installed on the system. We also ensure that our systems are configured with failover so that we do not lose any audit data.
  • The options available for auditing are outstanding.
  • The system has very good reliability and tuning options for the agents on the servers.
  • The data gathered is fantastic and presented in a format that is easily readable for auditors.
  • For on prem usage our servers have had no issues. The Linux is extremely resilient and we have no issues with the boxes.
  • Navigation of the menus can get confusing pretty quickly. Since there are so many, it is extremely easy to get lost. Almost too many options and data.
  • Configuring the agents can be very difficult if you are new to it. Having to save after every single change made to an agent during a configuration can be very tedious. Also having to make sure certain options are checked off in two separate places for a single option is very annoying.
  • Navigation of the menus is not always intuitive and not very obvious that the option you are looking change is located in that menu.
Compliance to audits and HiTrust certification. It is key in ensuring that our audits are completed in a timely manner with no repeats of data requests and that we also are HiTrust certified at our organization. Personally while the data obfuscation is available I am not sure I would fully trust that the data is completely sanitized if need be. It's not against the Imperva product but more of issue of data being used.
  • The number of options available that we can audit for outside of the auto options
  • The auto configurations that go along way for making sure PCI and HIPAA data selections are selected for audit data.
  • The failover options and logging options are very robust and function really well. The system is rock steady.
  • A big negative that we have to be aware of system overhead where the agent is loaded. When going through the HiTrust certification the number of items that we wanted to to audit where severely taxing the database performance of the systems and causing issues with customer facing systems. We make sure that are only choosing what is necessary now.
  • A even bigger positive is the ease of which our audits are completed for the databases. So long as we are collecting the correct data points it is a snap to export and provide exactly what is being asked for.
  • The peace of mind it provides us knowing the data being collected is correct and easily retrieved. It gives us alot of peace of mind.

This is currently used as a database monitor to monitor activity in all of our critical databases. We monitor transactions, log activity, user activity, and all edits, adds, drops, inserts, etc.
  • Alerts when suspicious activity is detected
  • Records all database transactions for analysis
  • Determines activities in stored procedures
  • 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
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.
  • Allowed us to meet important compliance requirements.
  • 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.
