Imperva, originally named WEBcohort, was founded in 2002 by Shlomo Kramer, Amichai Shulman and Mickey Boodaei.[1] The following year the company shipped its first product, SecureSphere Web Application Database Protection, a web application firewall.[2] In 2004, the company changed its name to Imperva.[3]

In 2011 Imperva went public and was listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: IMPV).[4]

In 2014 the company acquired the remaining shares of Incapsula, a cloud security gateway startup named SkyFence, and real-time mainframe security auditing agents from Tomium Software.[5]
