Enabling Your Cloud Transformation

When moving applications to private and public cloud infrastructures, it’s imperative to adopt a security posture with visibility and insights across all your environments. The Imperva WAF, part of Imperva’s application security portfolio, does exactly that. 

Not only does Imperva offer flexible and predictable licensing to secure your data and applications on-premises and in multi-cloud environments, but we also offer integrated, real-time Attack Analytics that cuts through the noise to alert you to the most critical threats to both your on-premises and cloud applications. 

Mitigating Risk for Your Business

With our recent introduction of a new API Security feature which integrates with the leading API management vendors, as well as the addition of advanced bot mitigation including targeted protection against account takeover, Imperva is laser-focused on securing all your API endpoints and protecting from all types of OWASP automated botnet threats. 

Always-on DDoS protection with what we believe to be the industry-best mitigation SLA complements the WAF, as part of Imperva’s full-stack, defense-in-depth, by ensuring availability even when under attack. 

An expansion of Imperva’s security and access control custom rules rounds out our increased ability to accurately detect and combat increasingly advanced threats as well as the demand for complete protection of the edge. Our extensive policy engine utilizes an adaptive security model for real-time response and flexible, custom security policy enforcement.

Going Forward

The Imperva WAF is an important part of our comprehensive application security solution set which protects your applications and websites against a wide range of cybersecurity threats. We hope to uphold this level of distinction in the market for our customers by continuing to expand our on-premises, cloud application and web API protection even further in the future.
