Redwood Shores, Calif.: Imperva, Inc., a pioneer and leader of a new category of business security solutions for critical applications and high-value business data in the data center, today announced the release of SecureSphere 10.0. With today’s announcement, Imperva raises the bar for Web application firewall (WAF) effectiveness by unveiling ThreatRadar Community Defense, the first crowd-sourced threat intelligence service that aggregates and validates attack data from WAFs to protect against hackers, automated clients, and zero-day attacks. Imperva is also extending its unmatched security coverage for data center assets by introducing SecureSphere Directory Services Monitoring plus support for NFS, IMS, and PostgreSQL.

“As vendors deploy more shared-intelligence features in their products, make use of them; they can make you more effective and more versatile in responding more quickly to today's threats,” said Anton Chuvakin, research director at Gartner, and Ramon Krikken, research VP at Gartner, in a May 2012 report titled Security Information and Event Management Futures.

Imperva ThreatRadar Community Defense delivers crowd-sourced threat intelligence to Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewalls (WAF). Gathering live attack data from WAFs deployed around the world and distributing this data in near-real time, Community Defense fortifies the entire community against emerging threats. Community Defense translates the attack feeds it gathers into attack patterns, reputation data, and policies to safeguard Imperva-protected Websites from similar attacks and attack sources.

“Together, Imperva ThreatRadar Reputation Services and Community Defense pull crowd-sourced data from around the world to provide heightened insight into the identity of these attackers,” said Amichai Shulman, Co-Founder and CTO of Imperva. “As the first company to deliver crowd-sourced threat intelligence for Web application firewalls, we continue to innovate to deliver what we believe are the best, most advanced Web application security solutions available to meet the evolving needs of our customers.”

Additionally, a Hacker Intelligence Initiative report, released today by Imperva, found that threat-blocking efficiency increased with crowd-sourced threat intelligence for the Web applications tracked in the report. The three-month long study of 60 Web applications demonstrates that cross-site information sharing (i.e., crowd sourcing) results in threat intelligence that enables protection against large-scale campaigns.
