Imperva PartnerSphere Program Opens Up Leading Application Data Security Products to Solution Providers Worldwide

New Channel Program and Mid-Market Product Enable Security Resellers to Tap Web Application Firewall and Database Protection Markets

Imperva®, the leader in application data security, today announced PartnerSphere, a worldwide program that allows security solution providers to offer their customers the multi-award winning SecureSphere Web Application Firewall (WAF) and Database Monitoring / Security gateways. In conjunction with PartnerSphere, Imperva today also announced SecureSphere Standard Edition (SE), a new channel-ready model of its WAF product that is optimized for mid-market organizations. See related Imperva news release: http://www.imperva.com/news/press/2008/10_06_Imperva_Makes_Web_ Application_Accessible_Mid_Enterprises.html. (Due to the length of this URL, it may be necessary to copy and paste it into your Internet browser's URL address field. You may also need to remove an extra space in the URL if one exists.)

Mid-market enterprises, especially those with web applications that process payment card data, are choosing Web Application Firewalls over code reviews to satisfy PCI compliance requirements, said Gordon Shevlin, executive vice president for FishNet Security. SecureSphere is hands down the easiest WAF to deploy and manage on the market. The new SE model combines the perfect blend of performance and price that will allow us to sell WAF technology in volume.

About the New Imperva SecureSphere SE

Created for businesses with limited IT budgets and staffs, SecureSphere SE can be deployed in minutes, and uses patent-pending Dynamic Profiling technology to learn application behavior and automatically create security policies. Unlike traditional WAFs, SecureSphere does not require ongoing manual tuning or configuration. Using a unique combination of positive and negative security models, SecureSphere SE prevents attackers from exploiting unknown and unpatched vulnerabilities in both commercial and custom developed web applications. It can be managed by just one or two administrators.
