Imperva Expands ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention Services and Integrates with
iovation Device Reputation Solution, ReputationManager 360
Redwood Shores, Calif., March 5, 2013 - Imperva, Inc. (NYSE: IMPV), a pioneer
and leader of a new category of data security solutions for high-value
business data in the data center, today announced it has extended the fraud
prevention capabilities of the Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewall
(WAF) and ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention to include integration with
ReputationManager 360 from iovation, a provider of device reputation
protection against online fraud and abuse. The Imperva SecureSphere WAF can
leverage ReputationManager 360 to identify and block high-risk devices that
conduct fraud campaigns.
"Chargebacks, account takeovers, and other fraud scams can impact
organizations' bottom lines, as well as damage business
customer loyalty," said iovation Director of Business Development Steve
Hanson. "By adding the prescriptive device reputation analysis of
ReputationManager 360 to the Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewall,
customers can effectively and efficiently mitigate fraudulent transactions."
Enterprises today should deploy multiple fraud security solutions to combat
the many fraud techniques used by cybercriminals. A layered approach to
protection against fraud is a security best practice, and also is recommended
as part of FFIEC authentication guidance. Because Imperva SecureSphere can
integrate with iovation and other fraud prevention vendors, Imperva customers
can roll out multiple fraud security solutions quickly, without needing to
modify their Web applications. Imperva SecureSphere consolidates fraud
prevention management and enforcement in a central location-the Web
application firewall-simplifying deployment and operations.
"By partnering with iovation, our customers can take advantage of the
ReputationManager 360 technology to identify and mitigate against fraud
through a unique combination of device identification and reputation analysis.
And because it's integrated into the Imperva SecureSphere WAF, users can
monitor and enforce fraud policies from their familiar SecureSphere user
interface," said Amichai Shulman, CTO at Imperva.
The Imperva SecureSphere WAF and ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention are designed to
help organizations reduce fraud expenses, unify fraud security management, and
provide visibility into fraud incidents. Benefits include:
* Streamlined deployment: Costly and time-consuming Web application
development projects are avoided because SecureSphere transparently
injects fraud security checks into Web transactions without requiring any
* Centralized fraud prevention: Organizations can centrally manage fraud
enforcement rules and correlate fraud detection with Web application
firewall policies from the SecureSphere Web user interface.
* Up-to-date fraud protection: Customers can take advantage of iovation's
latest defenses and configuration updates without needing to recode Web
