Imperva’s Web Application Firewall to secure ISACA’s web apps

Protects sensitive data from hackers and malicious insiders, and provides real-time protection against data breaches

By CBR Staff Writer

Imperva, a provider of data security offerings, said that ISACA, the association for information systems security, assurance and governance professionals, has selected Imperva’s web application firewall (WAF) to protect ISACA’s web applications.

ISACA is expected to leverage Imperva’s SecureSphere WAF, a data security and compliance offering, as a part of a comprehensive security strategy that delivers unprecedented prevention, mitigation and protection for its on-demand platform.

ISACA IT director Manny Singh said Imperva helps them ensure the security of their sensitive data, which is a critical part of doing business every day.

In addition to protecting sensitive data from hackers and malicious insiders, Imperva SecureSphere provides real-time protection against data breaches by hackers and malicious insiders.

The WAF enables executives, risk officers, auditors and security professionals to mitigate the financial and reputation damage of data loss.

SecureSphere alerts or blocks access requests that deviate from normal application and data usage, attempt to exploit known and unknown vulnerabilities, originate from malicious sources, violate corporate policies, and are part of a sophisticated multi-stage attack.

The WAF updates defenses with research-driven intelligence on current threats and vulnerabilities, while virtually patches application and database vulnerabilities to reduce the window of exposure and impact of ad-hoc fixes, according to Imperva.

Imperva CTO Amichai Shulman said that having ISACA as a customer is a major proof point that SecureSphere is the fastest way to mitigate application security risk.
