The main difference between Incapsula and Sucuri is how pricing is determined. Incapsula charges for bandwidth and additional features, such as layer 7 DDoS protection, whereas Sucuri includes all features and unlimited bandwidth. Sucuri also offers a complete website security platform, including malware removal and detection.
Sucuri offers unlimited malware removal in all Website Security Platform plans. Even if your website is reinfected, you will be able to open a malware removal ticket and Sucuri’s security analysts will clean your website. This includes automated cleanup, manual inspection, and a complete report of the quarantined files. Incapsula does not offer a malware removal service, but they offer prevention with their WAF, backdoor protect, and login protect services.
The Sucuri CDN is included in all Sucuri plans. We are serious about performance so we use several techniques to make your site faster. Sucuri offers website protection and increased performance with Sucuri’s global Anycast content delivery network. The Sucuri CDN caches your website content automatically, increasing the website speed by over 70%. On average, websites using the Incapsula CDN are 50% faster and consume 70% less bandwidth.
No matter how complex or difficult the malware removal process is, our security analysts will clean your website. Sucuri has a predictable pricing system based on the level of response required. The cost also includes one year of ongoing monitoring and protection to keep your website safe. For web professionals, Sucuri offers volume discounts and flexibility to protect your client projects. The Sucuri WAF starts at $9.99 per website per month, whereas the Incapsula WAF starts at $59 per site, per month. Incapsula also charges based on the type of features and amount of traffic you have.
Sucuri researchers work night and day to stay on top of new website threats. In 2018, the Sucuri Firewall successfully protected websites from 99% of zero-day vulnerabilities. This type of security flaw is not known to software developers, meaning that security patches aren’t available. Despite this, the Sucuri Firewall blocks the vast majority of these exploitation attempts. Imperva Incapsula’s cloud-based WAF also protects against zero-day attacks, although we could not find details as to how effectively they block zero-days before disclosure.
Sucuri offers unlimited distributed denial of service (DDoS) attacks mitigation in all WAF plans. No matter the attack size, type, or duration, Sucuri servers can handle a massive amount of malicious traffic. Receive only legitimate traffic and don’t disrupt your business. In comparison, Incapsula offers application layer DDoS protection from their business plan on and network layer DDoS protection only on their Enterprise plan.

I have had no issues since. None. It’s cool to see how many attacks my remaining four sites still attract each day – but your firewall remains firm. I can see the Sucuri Platform monitoring “live” – I know when the last daily scan occurred and can see if any issues (blacklisting, compromised files, etc.) have been found. They never have – so far.”Read More

“It’s not technology you’re selling, it’s expertise. The fact that people will look after you and take care of you, respect you, and help you rather than a bot… because that’s not actually what happens, there’s a level of human intervention – an actual expert that actually knows.”Read More
