Industrialized attacks continue to be the most widely seen method of attack against corporate data – it’s imperative that companies have an adaptable defense that can stop these attacks before they’re attempted.
Redwood Shores, CA (PRWeb UK) April 14, 2010
Imperva, the market leader in data security, announced today that it closed another record quarter, experiencing a 51% percent growth in bookings in the first quarter 2010 over the same quarter last year. The quarter was marked by strong performance internationally as well as the addition of nearly 100 new enterprise customers.
“Executives recognize there is a significant threat to the corporate data that drives their business,” said CEO Shlomo Kramer. "Imperva’s strong performance is an indicator that companies take this risk seriously and seek comprehensive data security solutions that protect them from malicious insiders and hackers.”
The key highlights from Q1 2010 include:
- 51% growth overall in bookings over Q1 2009
- Strong international performance
o Europe experienced 51% growth
o Asia experienced 75% growth
o Americas experienced 47% growth
Also in the first quarter, Imperva released a new generation of high performance hardware offering centralized management, increased storage and greater scalability, as well as ThreatRadar, an add-on to Imperva's market-leading Web Application Firewall (WAF) providing automated, reputation-based defense against large scale industrialized cyber attacks. “As adversaries share information on weak links in the security chain, ThreatRadar can provide valuable intelligence and ‘early warning’ to malicious attacks and lets us add a proactive preventive measure rather than simply await and react to attacks,” explained James Fallon, Security Manager with ARC Corporation.
“We’ve seen a tremendous response to our latest product releases, ThreatRadar in particular,” continued Kramer. “Industrialized attacks continue to be the most widely seen method of attack against corporate data – it’s imperative that companies have an adaptable defense that can stop these attacks before they’re attempted.”
In January, Imperva Application Defense Center released a seminal report, “Password Security: Consumer Worst Practices.” This study of 32 million passwords that were made public by a recent data breach was featured on the front page of The New York Times.

The company also received accolades from industry analyst groups Forrester Research and IDC that praised the company for its market leadership. “Imperva is the leader in the stand-alone WAF market,” said Chenxi Wang in a February 2010 report on web application firewalls.
