FireEye and Imperva Integrate Products to Enhance Protection for Critical Applications, Data, and Intellectual Property From Advanced Cyber Attacks
MILPITAS, CA and REDWOOD SHORES, CA, Jan 14, 2013 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) --
FireEye(R), Inc., the leader in stopping today's new breed of cyber
attacks, and Imperva, Inc. (NYSE: IMPV), a pioneer and leader of a
new category of data security solutions for high-value business data
in the data center, today announced they have successfully integrated
their products in an effort to enhance the ability of enterprises to
detect and detain malware and compromised insiders.
Today, advanced cyber attacks are bypassing traditional security
defenses using malware to compromise insiders, and then access and
exfiltrate sensitive data. In 2011, the Verizon Data Breach report
noted that 69% of breached data incorporated malware. And many
enterprises remain completely unprepared. For example, the recent
high-profile breach in South Carolina relied on malware to infect
employees and steal 72 gigabytes of sensitive data. As IT analyst
firm Gartner noted in a January 2012 report, Best Practices for
Mitigating Advanced Persistent Threats, "There is widespread
agreement that advanced attacks are bypassing our traditional
signature-based security controls and persisting undetected on our
systems for extended periods of time. The threat is real. You are
compromised; you just don't know it."
FireEye delivers a unique virtualized detection engine that protects
employees from external infection and blocks malicious traffic.
Imperva observes, audits, and logs suspicious activity from insiders,
enabling security policies to automatically restrict access to
sensitive applications, such as SAP and Oracle's E-Business Suite as
well as data from "at risk" insiders. By integrating their products,
information security teams can automatically identify malware across
Web, email, and file share attack vectors and deploy access controls
that prevent at risk insiders from accessing sensitive business
applications and data.
"The most valuable asset a company owns is its intellectual property
and the proprietary information it generates," said Ashar Aziz,
founder, vice chairman, and CTO of FireEye. "Cybercriminals and
nation-state sponsored attacks are motivated by profit and ideology
to steal this information, and insider threats, both malicious and
unintentionally compromised, are a primary conduit to this
"The sophistication and volume of attacks has been steadily
increasing and compromising traditional defense mechanisms," said
Amichai Shulman, co-founder and CTO of Imperva. "Advanced threats
require a new class of solutions that identify compromised insiders
and detect malware across Web, email, and file share attack vectors
to limit risk to data."
