Cybersecurity provider Imperva have acquired DevOps security firm Prevoty in a bid to protect applications hosted on-premise as well as on the cloud. With this acquisition, Imperva aims to add muscle to their hybrid security strategy and help businesses protect themselves from cyber risks.
With the rising number of cyber threats and attacks, Impervia claim that gaining visibility of hosting environments has become critical for businesses. They believe that businesses not only need to safeguard their applications but also need deeper insights to help them mitigate these risks beforehand.
By acquiring Prevoty, Imperva says that they will jointly be able to provide monitoring, mitigating and breach prevention capabilities to applications hosted across hybrid environments. This move, according to Imperva, will help customers build security applications natively and extend their reach in the DevOps market.
Speaking about the acquisition, Chris Hylen, President and CEO of Imperva, commented:
The acquisition is expected to advance our hybrid security strategy and further our mission to deliver best-in-class cybersecurity solutions.
When combined with our on-premises and cloud products, it will help businesses better protect themselves from attacks, prevent breaches and monitor security across their digital business.
Combined with Imperva insights offerings, Prevoty will further help to identify the true risks to customers’ application services.
