Web Application Security
  • Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewall

    Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewall analyzes all user access to your business-critical web applications and protects your applications and their data from attacks. SecureSphere Web Application Firewall dynamically learns your applications’ “normal” behavior and correlates this with the industry’s leading threat intelligence for web applications to deliver superior protection. SecureSphere Web Application Firewall identifies and acts upon dangers maliciously woven into innocent-looking website traffic; traffic that slips right through traditional defenses. This includes application vulnerability attacks such as SQL injection, cross-site scripting and remote file inclusion; business logic attacks such as site scraping and comment spam; and fraudulent activity like account takeover attacks.

  • Imperva ThreatRadar Threat Intelligence

    ThreatRadar arms SecureSphere Web Application Firewall with globally crowdsourced, real-time threat intelligence to stop known malicious users and industrialized, multi-vector attacks from the very start.

    ThreatRadar combines threat intelligence research from Imperva Application Defense Center (ADC) with live threat data crowdsourced from around the world to:

    • Provide early detection, filtering and blocking of known bad traffic
    • Identify and block malicious bot activity
    • Protect website accounts from credential takeover attacks
    • Allow SoC engineers to focus on what matters most
    • Streamline forensic analysis with clear, relevant alerts and reports

    Imperva Incapsula

    Imperva Incapsula is a cloud-based application delivery service that protects websites and increases their performance, improving end user experiences and safeguarding web applications and their data from attack. Incapsula includes a web application firewall to thwart hacking attempts, DDoS mitigation to ensure attacks don’t impact online business assets, a content delivery network to optimize and accelerate web traffic, and a load balancer to maximize the potential of web environments.

DDoS Protection

As a result, in addition to securing websites against DDoS threats, Incapsula also guards against exploitation of application vulnerabilities and ensures that website traffic runs normal operating speeds, even during large-scale volumetric attacks.

  • Imperva Incapsula Infrastructure DDoS Protection

Cloud Security

As organizations adopt cloud computing, critical applications and data assets move to the cloud in different ways. And just as the cloud extends the concept of the data center, we have extended our leading Imperva SecureSphere platform into the industry’s most comprehensive portfolio for cloud security.For externally facing, production applications many organizations are leveraging the economies of scale that Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) providers offer to realize significant cost savings. Amazon Web Services is the public IaaS platform that most customers use today. For these customers, SecureSphere for Amazon Web Services allows them to move their applications without sacrificing security.For internally facing corporate applications, the move from on premise to Software as a Service (SaaS) applications such as Office365, Salesforce, Workday and NetSuite can result in significant cost savings and increased flexibility. But it also introduces significant risk as SaaS applications cannot be addressed by traditional on-premise activity monitoring and security solutions. To fill this gap, the Imperva Skyfence Cloud Gateway provides visibility and control over sanctioned and unsanctioned cloud apps to enable their safe and productive use.Finally, some organizations prefer a SaaS model for Web security (or Web application firewall delivery). Imperva Incapsula directly meets that need with an application-aware global datacenter network that provides website security as well as DDoS protection.
