Multiple Imperva Products Win 2022 Fortress Cyber Security Awards
In June, the Business Intelligence Group announced that three Imperva products won the 2022 Fortress Cyber Security Awards. The mission of this prestigious awards program is to identify and reward the world’s leading companies and products that achieve protect the world’s data and electronic assets from the growing threat of hackers.
The Fortress Cyber Security Awards are widely recognized as the world’s premier cybersecurity awards program. The purpose of the Business Intelligence Group is to highlight, discuss and reward the creative thinking, engineering, people and projects that tackle this growing threat for the benefit of the global community. Unlike many other award programs, the merit of winning the Fortress Cyber Security Awards is judged by active, working professionals with experience and knowledge in the field.
Data Security Fabric Product Wins Fortress Cyber Security Award for Data Protection
Imperva Data Security Fabric (DSF) protects data by augmenting traditional enterprise security approaches with controls for the data itself, to drive policy-compliant data processing behavior and help security personnel identify and mitigate data threats before they become damaging events.
How Imperva Data Security Fabric is Different
Imperva DSF enables users to take advantage of available activity monitoring, security assessments, risk modeling, and attack detection capabilities in a modern, unified, data-centric security solution. DSF enables organizations of all sizes and in all industries to consolidate multiple data security tools or upgrade an outdated legacy solution. The end results are a dramatic reduction in data breach risk, simplified compliance, and expedited audits.
Imperva DSF represents a new approach to data security; a convergence of platforms that provides complete visibility into how sensitive data is stored, shared and used – even in the cloud – and eliminates blind spots for security and governance teams.
Imperva DSF also unifies security controls across the enterprise; protect structured, semi-structured and unstructured data, including sensitive personal data.
Imperva Data Security Fabric automates data security and compliance tasks that in other solutions require manual attention; such as reporting and incident management. Security teams do more, with much more precision, in less time.
Imperva DSF enables security teams and governance stakeholders to collaborate more effectively across departments, integrating with other enterprise ecosystem tools such as Splunk and ServiceNow to speed up audits, incident investigation and corrective action. This combination of visibility, control, automation and integration dramatically reduces compliance costs and improves workforce efficiency. The solution is flexible and scalable, making it scalable and continuously improving the overall ROI.
Imperva Web Application Firewall and API Protection Products Win Fortress Cyber Security Awards for Application Security
Imperva’s Web Application Firewall (WAF) stops cyberattacks moments after they are discovered in the wild, preventing the disruption of important digital transactions and the theft of sensitive data, with near-zero false positives and SOC worldwide to ensure that every client organization is constantly protected. .
How Imperva WAF is different
Unlike many WAF solutions that force users to choose between blocking legitimate traffic or remaining in watch mode forever, Imperva Research Labs guarantees the precision performance of the Imperva WAF to confidently block malicious traffic as the landscape of threats change.
Imperva WAF enables automatic policy creation and rapid rule propagation to enable security teams to use third-party code risk-free while working at the pace of DevOps.
Why API security is so critical in today’s cyber threat landscape
IDC reports that many companies believe APIs are critical to future innovation. Today, one in four companies derive at least 10% of their overall revenue from APIs, and IDC expects that number to grow in the future. However, 27% of these companies cite security, privacy, and compliance issues as the top barriers to more widespread API adoption. Businesses are particularly concerned about the loss of control over APIs in environments that accelerate innovation, such as an open ecosystem approach to development.
Imperva API Security provides continuous protection of all APIs by using in-depth discovery and classification of sensitive data to detect all public, private, and phantom APIs to enable security teams to implement a positive security model.
How Imperva API Security is different
API security threats come in two types; known attack patterns like injections (e.g. a log4j injection into an API entry) and unknown attack patterns targeting application specific business logic and data structure (e.g. calls broken object authorization API). The latter calls for a different approach from that provided by traditional solutions.
To address this challenge, Imperva API Security automates data discovery in the application-specific data layer. The discovery process identifies sensitive data. The API inventory is the basis for detecting and resolving security incidents, and Imperva API Security updates it automatically to ensure it is working as expected.
