Founded in 2002 in Redwood Shores, CA, Imperva is a leading provider of application and database security solutions — two of the most important pieces of an organization’s IT assets — on-premises, in the cloud, and across hybrid environments. Imperva’s core application security offering is a Web Application Firewall (WAF) that inspects all traffic going to a company’s websites/web applications and protects against both known and unknown threats. For database security, the company’s principal product is a Database Activity Monitoring (DAM) solution that inspects all user activity within a database and then uses advanced analytics to determine whether that activity represents a threat, in which case it can disable a user’s access and track changes the user made within the database.
