Imperva has introduced a data-centric security platform that can secure diverse database environments, simplifying the security and compliance of cloud data.
The platform all databases regardless of where they are hosted, including database as a service (DBaaS), infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and multi and hybrid cloud environments. It natively integrates with any database on Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, MongoDB Atlas and Snowflake, as well as many others.
Bryan Boam, CEO of Network Consulting Services, explained, “Customers need better security insight and management with complex multi-cloud environments. The all-in-one data security offering from Imperva helps us equip customers with those capabilities. Having a solution like this in our portfolio gives us a definite advantage over competitors with siloed offerings in the market.”
According to Imperva Research Labs, data breaches in open public cloud services are occurring more frequently as more companies migrate their operations and workloads to the cloud. Data leakage attacks increased 557 per cent over the past 12 months, and are up 74 per cent since the beginning of 2021. The company said these findings highlight the vulnerability of cloud data and underscore the importance of securing the data itself, not just the network, servers and applications around it.
Ron Bennatan, SVP and GM of Data Security at Imperva, added, “We’ve gathered feedback from thousands of users. In almost all cases, we’ve seen organisations working under the perception that they can either move rapidly into the cloud, or securely into the cloud, but not both.
“We’re very glad to say that’s just not true. Imperva provides confidence for CIOs and InfoSec leaders solving the conundrum of moving rapidly into the cloud, or securely into the cloud, by delivering on both. We are uniquely situated to help any business moving any data workload to any cloud in a secure and compliant manner.”
