We Protect What Matters Most
Cybercriminals constantly change their tactics. But what they are after, and how they ultimately make money, doesn’t change. They are after data. They make their money through extortion, via DDoS and ransomware, and through theft via data breaches. Today, data and applications are the fundamental assets of any enterprise. Data are the intellectual property and apps are what run the business. Imperva has a singular purpose: protect these critical assets from the ever-changing attacks of the cybercrime industry.
How They Do It
Imperva protects you from cybercriminals – be they external actors or malicious insiders. Imperva protects cloud applications, websites and applications, files, SharePoint systems, databases and big data repositories from both theft and ever-evolving extortion attacks like DDoS and ransomware. Our technology provides granular visibility into how users access data and applications, and uses sophisticated user tracking and classification to detect and block cyberattacks, botnets, unauthorized users and malicious insiders. The Imperva Defense Center research team – comprised of some of the world’s leading experts in data and application security – roots out new attack methods and stops them before they reach you. So whether your critical digital assets are in the cloud or on-premises, in an application or in a database, you can be confident that Imperva will protect them from both the profit-driven cybercrime industry and nation-state actors.
While we work hard to protect your company’s information and help you comply with regulations, we provide even further value in our solutions’ ability to easily deploy and operate at enterprise scale. What we bring to the table are three advantages that make our total value of ownership much greater than any other security and compliance solution.
