Imperva provides cyber security software and services to protect companies’ sensitive data and application software from both external attacks and internal threats, and to ensure regulatory compliance. Headquartered in Redwood Shores, California, Imperva has more than 4,500 customers and 500 partners in over 90 countries.
Imperva, originally named WEBcohort, was founded in 2002 by Shlomo Kramer, Amichai Shulman and Mickey Boodaei. The following year the company shipped its first product, SecureSphere Web Application Database Protection, a web application firewall. In 2004, the company changed its name to Imperva and continued its growth throughout the following years by expanding into Europe and Asia. In 2010 the company introduced the Imperva SecureSphere File Security product family to help mitigate insider threats.
In 2011 Imperva went public and was listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: IMPV). That year it also introduced a Cloud Web Application Firewall for the mid-market called ImpervaCloud powered by Incapsula—a startup seeded by Imperva. In 2013 Imperva announced ThreatRadar Community Defense, a crowd-sourced threat intelligence service. 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. Later that year, Anthony Bettencourt replaced Shlomo Kramer as the President and CEO, and the following year he replaced Kramer as the Chairman of the Board of Directors. In 2015, the company announced Imperva CounterBreach, a solution that protects enterprise data from theft and loss by insiders. In 2016 the company introduced a data masking solution called Imperva Camouflage.
Data security products
Imperva’s database security solutions secure sensitive data stored in databases against compromises of their confidentiality, integrity and availability by providing full visibility into data usage, vulnerabilities and access rights to security, audit and risk professionals by combining remote assessment scans, agent-based monitoring and network activity monitoring.
Imperva’s file security solutions protect sensitive files on file servers, storage devices, and content repositories, as well as provide full visibility into data ownership, usage and access rights, which according to Gartner’s Neil MacDonald is crucial to improving file data security.
Imperva has a dedicated research team, the Application Defense Center (ADC), that actively researches current threats and hacker trends. Notably, the ADC launched a Hacker Intelligence Initiative that has helped illuminate hacker activity and organization. Contributions:
