Imperva Triples Revenues in 2006 to Lead Market for Data Security and Compliance


Thursday, February 8, 2007; 03:39 AM

Imperva, the global leader in data security and compliance solutions for the data center, today announced that it increased sales by 300 percent in 2006. Revenues spiked in 2006 due to increased need for companies to demonstrate compliance with regulatory requirements and protect sensitive data against insider and outsider threats. The company added over 120 new customers last year, with more than 50 percent of buyers choosing to deploy Imperva’s end-to-end solution, including both the web application and the database solution.

According to Eric Ogren, Security Analyst at Enterprise Strategy Group, “Imperva is a company driving in the fast lane; it has come a long way. Imperva is the one company that can combine proven expertise of high performance http inspection with SQL parsing. Imperva is taking control of datacenter security.”

“Imperva’s approach meets our need to address both data compliance and data security,” said Scott Ficek, senior director of information systems for Caribou Coffee. “Imperva understands we need to both audit all users who access our financial database and identify database attacks attempting to evade our security and audit policies.”
