SuccessFactors Leads Enterprise Cloud Security With Strategic Technology Partnership With WhiteHat Security and Imperva

SANTA CLARA and REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- WhiteHat Security, the leading provider of website risk management solutions, and Imperva, the data security leader, today announced that SuccessFactors, the global leader in on-demand performance and talent management solutions, continues to raise the bar for enterprise cloud computing with new security standards powered by both companies' integrated solutions.

SuccessFactors leverages WhiteHat's Website Vulnerability Management and Imperva's SecureSphere Web Application Firewall (WAF) as a part of a comprehensive security strategy that delivers unprecedented prevention, mitigation and protection for its on-demand platform.

"We're continuing to build the biggest cloud computing company in the world and our on-demand applications help more than five million end users and 2,700 customers everyday to bridge the gap between strategy and execution at their organizations. Our high security standards and partnerships with WhiteHat and Imperva ensure the security of our customers' sensitive data, and really are helping to set the standards for the industry as a whole," said Joe White, information security architect, SuccessFactors. "Our security is leaps and bounds ahead of on-premise solutions, and it's making the decision to migrate over to cloud solutions even easier for large enterprises."

The joint solution couples WhiteHat's industry-leading website vulnerability management solution, WhiteHat Sentinel, with Imperva's award-winning SecureSphere WAF. The integration provides customers like SuccessFactors with a robust website security program providing benefits including the ability to:

  • Eliminate emergency fix and test cycles -- immediately remediate discovered website vulnerabilities via a "virtual patch" without the need for development intervention

  • Prioritize Web application firewall alerts -- based on accurate, verified security risks identified by WhiteHat Sentinel -- eliminating false positives

  • Build more accurate security and compliance reports -- specifically highlight attempts to exploit known vulnerabilities

  • Granularly manage security vulnerabilities -- unmatched capability for importing specific types of WhiteHat Sentinel application assessment results to the SecureSphere WAF based on severity level or class

  • Exceed the minimum PCI DSS 6.6 requirements -- provide the best protection available against data compromise

"The partnership between WhiteHat and Imperva is a natural fit given our leadership in website security," said Amichai Shulman, co-founder and chief technology officer, Imperva. "Our combined solution is the fastest way to mitigate application security risk. Any company deploying sensitive Web applications can benefit from the protection our partnership offers for an enterprise's entire application stack."

"There is much discussion about the application security lifecycle and where dollars are best spent," said Jeremiah Grossman, founder and chief technology officer, WhiteHat Security. "It is critical to implement security in the SDLC as well as on production websites, where risk is greatest. Customers should never have to choose between business operations and security. WhiteHat and Imperva's integration addresses this challenge by putting mitigation in the hands of security professionals and enabling business continuity."

"The most damaging threats today are exploiting vulnerabilities in Web-facing applications. Businesses need to prioritize proactive and continuing Web application security programs that reduce application vulnerabilities and shield against targeted attacks," said John Pescatore, Gartner vice president and distinguished analyst.

Imperva SecureSphere is the only solution that delivers full visibility and control for business databases and the applications that use them. The award-winning SecureSphere delivers full activity monitoring from the database to the accountable application user and is recognized for its overall ease of management and deployment.

WhiteHat Sentinel is an on-demand SaaS-based subscription service, combining advanced proprietary automated scanning technology with expert analysis, enabling customers to identify, prioritize, manage and remediate website vulnerabilities as they occur.


The WhiteHat Sentinel / Imperva SecureSphere integration is currently generally available. Existing customers that have deployed both WhiteHat Sentinel and Imperva SecureSphere with an active maintenance contract will receive integration free of charge.
