Imperva to Acquire DevOps Security Leader Prevoty


Acquisition will add a new layer of security, enhancing customers'
ability to protect their business from cybercriminals

. (NASDAQ:IMPV), a leading global provider of best-in-class
cybersecurity solutions on-premises, in the cloud and across hybrid
environments, today announced it signed an agreement to acquire Prevoty.
Together, Imperva and Prevoty will provide comprehensive security
solutions to protect application services residing on-premises and in
the cloud. This solution aligns with how organizations are developing
and deploying application services in a hybrid cloud world.

The combination of Imperva and Prevoty will expand customers' security
capabilities and their visibility into how applications are accessed,
what happens within the applications, and how applications and users
interact with data. With this expanded view across their business
assets, customers will have deeper insights to help them understand and
mitigate security risk.

"The acquisition is expected to advance our hybrid security strategy and
further our mission to deliver best-in-class cybersecurity solutions,"
said Chris Hylen, president and CEO of Imperva. "Prevoty complements
current Imperva application and data security offerings. When combined
with our on-premises and cloud products, it will help businesses better
protect themselves from attacks, prevent breaches and monitor security
across their digital business. Combined with Imperva insights offerings,
Prevoty will further help to identify the true risks to customers'
application services."

An early innovator, Prevoty is the recognized leader in The
Forrester New Wave
™: Runtime Application Self-Protection, Q1 2018.
According to the report, written by Amy DeMartine, principal analyst at
Forrester, "Prevoty leads the pack with robust attack detection,
response, and visibility."

Prevoty will enable customers using agile development to natively build
security into their applications, extending Imperva's reach into the
DevOps market. Prevoty combines the rich, detailed context of the
application itself with an easy-to-deploy security solution that
integrates seamlessly into continuous integration and continuous
deployment life cycles.

"Our team is excited to join Imperva, a company with a long track record
of cybersecurity leadership and innovation," said Julien Bellanger, CEO
of Prevoty. "We believe that the combination of our solutions with
Imperva's portfolio of products will allow us to jointly create the gold
standard in technology for application and data protection for
organizations everywhere."

Imperva has extended employment offers to all Prevoty employees and
looks forward to them joining the team. Prevoty's Los Angeles office
will become an Imperva location.
