Imperva Named a Leader in the 2017 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls for the Fourth Consecutive Year

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. 14, 2017– Imperva, Inc. (NASDAQ: IMPV), committed to protecting business-critical data and applications in the cloud and on-premises, today announced that it has been named a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewalls (WAF). Imperva provides comprehensive WAF protection for data and applications with flexible deployment via on-premises, in the cloud or through a combination of both.

“For the fourth year in a row, Imperva has been placed in the Leaders Quadrant. We believe that our ability to offer a flexible on-premises and cloud WAF plan via the new Imperva FlexProtect is one reason that Imperva continues to be a leader,” said Terry Ray, CTO of Imperva. “Our customers demand comprehensive protection, accurate detection, and flexible deployment options that keep pace with the ever-changing threat landscape, and I’m thrilled to say that we feel Gartner’s recognition proves this point again.”

According to Gartner, “The ability of WAFs to integrate with other enterprise security technologies — such as application security testing (AST), database monitoring, or security information and event management (SIEM) — is a capability that supports its strong presence in the enterprise market.”1
