Imperva and Amazon Partner to Help Mitigate Risks Associated With Cloud Migration

Helping our customers reduce the risks associated with migrating to the cloud, and preventing availability and security incidents, has been a major development focus for Imperva over the last several years.  

Why the partnership matters

Although cloud service providers take a host of IT management burdens off of your shoulders when using their platforms, service level agreements (SLA) for platform availability and security don’t cover what runs on the platform. While they protect the platform itself, they are very clear that management, compliance and security responsibilities for your applications and data are yours alone.  Amazon calls this a Shared Responsibility Model.

What we do

For applications, Imperva helps customers ensure that they don’t suffer from Application Layer 3-4 and 7 Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks and protects against all OWASP top 10 application security risks and even zero-day attacks.  Imperva application security is a top-rated solution by both Gartner and Forrester for both WAF and DDoS protection.

Additionally, for cloud database migrations, Imperva helps ensure customers don’t leave gaps in their compliance and security controls as they migrate their database to the AWS EC2 Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform.  As of December 2017, we also cover Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings such as Amazon RDS.

Staying Agile

Most organizations operate hybrid IT environments, hosting some applications and data in on-premises data centers, and some on public cloud platforms – or multiple vendor cloud platforms. Imperva supports these configurations and provides solutions to integrate security into Continuous Integration and Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) processes used by DevOps project teams.

Imperva recently acquired the Prevoty Runtime Application Self Protection (RASP) solution; so our customers can automate security deployment in DevOps project delivery processes, to ensure applications and data are always protected.
