REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., April 26, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Imperva, Inc. (NYSE:IMPV), committed to protecting business-critical data and applications in the cloud and on-premises, today announced the availability of Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewall and Database Activity Monitoring Agents for Microsoft Azure cloud computing services. With SecureSphere, enterprises that embrace Azure can now trust that their data and applications are protected regardless of where they’re stored—in-the-cloud and on-premises.
Azure enables organizations to deploy mission-critical applications in the cloud to scale with the pace of business and reduce operational costs. As companies move their applications and data to the cloud, securing the valuable assets they deploy there from web attacks, data theft and failed audits becomes a heightened organizational priority. Failure to deploy proper security solutions could counteract the cost-savings benefit of the cloud migration—replaced instead with expensive breach investigations, downtime and lawsuits.
“In line with Microsoft's commitment to security, we are working closely with Imperva to help enterprise customers move on-premises workloads into Microsoft Azure,” said Bob Kelly, Corporate Vice President, Cloud + Enterprise Business Development, Microsoft. “Imperva solutions deliver great application and data security with streamlined deployment for customers looking to match their enterprise security posture in Microsoft Azure.”
Key benefits of utilizing SecureSphere in conjunction with Azure include:
- Migration of security with applications hosted on the Azure cloud infrastructure;
- The same level of security in the cloud as is delivered on-premises;
- Migrated applications will meet compliance standards;
- Flexible annual subscription-based pricing model on the Microsoft Azure Marketplace.
“According to a recent Forrester1 report, companies will spend $8 billion over the next five years to protect data in the cloud,” said Ayelet Steinitz, Vice President of Business Development at Imperva. "Our customers can now enjoy the benefits of the Microsoft cloud infrastructure with the confidence that their data and applications are being protected by the industry-leading application and database security offerings from Imperva.”
