REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. , April 06, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Imperva, Inc. (NYSE:IMPV), committed to protecting business-critical data and applications in the cloud and on premises, today announced that Symantec has added the Imperva Incapsula service to its Complete Website Security solution. Imperva Incapsula, a cloud-based security and performance service that enables safer, faster and more reliable websites, will round out the Symantec Website Security solution as an additional service that can quickly identify and address risks related to DDoS and other types of web attacks. The Symantec Complete Website Security solution goes far beyond encryption to deliver protection for websites, data and applications with 24/7 control that mitigates risk and helps to ensure uninterrupted performance for every website.
With the increasingly high frequency of DDoS attacks, organizations need to have proper DDoS protection in order to safeguard their websites and web applications. According to the Imperva “Q3 2015 Global DDoS Threat Landscape” report, an attack of 260 Gbps was observed, as was one that lasted 31 days. On average, the Imperva Incapsula network mitigated 129 DDoS attacks per day and a 100+ Gbps attack once every two days. A total of 7,752 attacks were mitigated during the report period.
The Symantec Complete Website Security solution helps organizations build trust with their online users and consumers by protecting their websites and data in transit. The addition of Imperva Incapsula will extend consumer confidence by protecting websites from downtime and improving the user experience through faster website response time.
“The Symantec Complete Website Security solution gives enterprise customers a comprehensive security solution, including encryption, authentication, malware protection and vulnerability scans,” said Michael Klieman, Senior Director of Website Security at Symantec. “As DDoS attacks present a rising concern with our customer base, we are delighted to add Imperva Incapsula to mitigate that risk and round out our solution.”
“The decision from Symantec to include Imperva Incapsula in its Complete Website Security solution recognizes our leadership in this fast growing market,” said Marc Gaffan, General Manager for the Incapsula service at Imperva. “Website and application performance are critical to organizations that operate online, and the increase in sophistication and frequency of DDoS attacks show no signs of slowing. We are pleased to team with Symantec to protect organizations’ websites and applications, and look forward to strengthening our relationship with them through this agreement.”
Using Imperva Incapsula, organizations of any size can protect their businesses with enterprise-grade web application security, DDoS mitigation, performance optimization and load balancing.
