Imperva Data Security Fabric offers a bold new approach to protecting all data across multicloud and hybrid environments

SAN MATEO, Calif.–(COMMERCIAL WIRE)–imperva, inc.(@Imperva), the comprehensive leader in digital security, introduces Imperva Data Security Fabric (DSF) to modernize and simplify data governance, security, and workflow management for all data across multicloud and hybrid environments. Imperva DSF standardizes data security controls across enterprise environments to provide complete visibility into what’s happening across all asset and file stores, on premises and in the cloud. Its flexible architecture supports a wide range of data repositories, ensuring that security policies are applied consistently everywhere.

Imperva DSF integrates Imperva Sonar and a broad portfolio of industry-leading, mission-critical Imperva Data Security products and technologies. Customers are already using Imperva’s DSF capabilities to protect data across hundreds of data stores across leading cloud providers. These capabilities provide access to thousands of automation and response integrations to optimize visibility, create specific rules to manage data risk, and leverage a combination of security tools that support those platforms.

Imperva DSF makes it easy for customers to understand and mitigate data risk at every step of their security journey across structured, semi-structured and unstructured data. According to Gartner, “By 2024, the largest enterprises will triple the amount of unstructured data stored as file or object storage on premises, at the edge, or in the public cloud, compared to 2020. This massive growth in unstructured data demands a better protection against threats such as” Imperva DSF can discover and classify more than 350 unique file formats, including the formats most used by Adobe, Google, Microsoft and many others. Imperva DSF protects a customer’s hybrid and multicloud environments and provides visibility through a single service that can run anywhere within that environment. Imperva DSF provides a holistic view that makes it easy for customers to quickly identify and protect sensitive information throughout their protected environment.

Across a wide range of areas, including policy compliance, compromised credentials, unintentional misuse, and malicious threats to sensitive data, organizations across all industries around the world ask us to help protect their data. They need extensive yet centralized control and automation to gain a more complete view of risk posture, faster insights to accelerate response times, and reduced cost of ownership,” says Dan Neault, senior vice president and general manager of security at Imperva data. “Imperva Data Security Fabric enables organizations to safeguard their sensitive data while ensuring data security, compliance and privacy, and managing digital risk while confidently moving strategic data to the cloud.”

Imperva DSF and its unique automation capabilities for agent and agentless deployments make it simpler and less costly for customers to scale data protection and governance anywhere. “After going through a painful situation with another data activity monitoring solution, we went with Imperva because we needed to deliver something quickly for compliance reasons. Imperva offered us a more efficient agent-based solution in terms of cost, administration and much less complexity. You have the opportunity to do everything in one place,” says Diego Laverde, CISO of Banco Popular Dominicano. “It went into production with no issues, the business didn’t even realize it had happened, and it worked like it should.”

Through the Imperva Technology Alliance Program (TAP), Imperva DSF has built-in integrations with the world’s leading hyperscalers (for example, Amazon Web ServicesMicrosoft® Azure®Google Cloud™, etc.), database providers (for example, Microsoft®Mongo DB® Atlas, Oracle DBMS, Snowflakeetc.) and workflow managers (eg, Atlassian, ServiceNow, etc.). Imperva DSF opens up new opportunities for partner building innovation to provide customers with additional capabilities and simplify their orchestration. Imperva TAP is pleased to welcome Mage™ (formerly Mentis), a data masking alternative to Imperva DSF’s built-in capabilities to help customers protect structured and unstructured data throughout the development lifecycle. .

“We are excited about the possibilities Imperva DSF brings to mutual customers and the partner ecosystem,” says Rajesh Parthasarathy, CEO of Mage. “Our technology alliance with Imperva provides organizations with an analyst-recognized, integrated masking solution for all data types supported by Imperva DSF.”

Imperva’s data security structure includes:

  • Data activity monitoring: Mitigate malicious internal and external threats by detecting changes, auditing activities for compliance, and blocking or alerting on policy violations.
  • Data risk analysis: automate the detection of non-compliant, risky, or malicious data access behavior in data stores.
  • Governance data: discover and classify sensitive data residing in structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data types to operationalize security control policies.
  • Data access control: control user rights to sensitive data, including detection of overly broad data access in the cloud or on-premises.
  • Data masking: transform the data to make it unreadable or de-identified, allowing the processing to take place accordingly.
