REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Feb. 08, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Imperva, Inc. (NASDAQ:IMPV) today announced it has agreed to sell its Skyfence technology and service to Forcepoint. The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to be complete during the first quarter of 2017.
“The Skyfence solution provides an ideal complement to Forcepoint’s security solutions. We are confident that Forcepoint will continue investing in the Skyfence technology and nurture Skyfence customers as we have done,” said Anthony Bettencourt, president, chief executive officer and chairman of the board of Imperva. “This move will allow us to focus on our core business of helping customers protect critical data and applications.”
“Forcepoint is dedicated to delivering cybersecurity systems that help customers protect critical business data wherever it resides,” said Matthew P. Moynahan, chief executive officer of Forcepoint. “Since partnering with Imperva nearly two years ago, we’ve had the opportunity to see first-hand the power of the Skyfence technology – and how well it complements Forcepoint’s web security and DLP solutions. I’m confident that integrating Skyfence into Forcepoint’s portfolio will provide significant value to customers as they seek to secure IP and other data within an on‑premises infrastructure, as well as public cloud environments. We’re thrilled to welcome the Skyfence team to Team Forcepoint.”
The Skyfence solution is a cloud access security broker that provides visibility and control over sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud applications. Skyfence customer support will be transitioned to Forcepoint upon close of the transaction. Imperva will continue to support integration with Skyfence via its CounterBreach and ThreatRadar solutions.
