Korea Life Selects Cybertek Holdings and Imperva to Secure Web Applications
Distributor of Information Security Products to Recruit and Train Resellers for SecureSphere Products
SEOUL, SOUTH KOREA and FOSTER CITY, Calif., Nov. 15, 2005, Imperva™, the leader in data layer security, and Cybertek Holdings, Inc. (KOSDAQ:037240), a security solution provider and authorized distributor of Imperva, today announced that Korea Life Insurance has deployed the SecureSphere™ Dynamic Profiling Firewall to secure its Web applications from attack.
In tests at Korea Life, SecureSphere delivered five to seven times better performance than reverse proxy implementations for both throughput and latency because SecureSphere’s transparent inspection requires less processing overhead than the reverse-proxy architecture. SecureSphere also provides the industry’s most comprehensive multi-language and multi-character set support, including support for double-byte character sets, a key requirement in the Korean market.
“The decision by Korea Life Insurance to choose SecureSphere over reverse proxy products validates the superiority of Imperva’s approach to application security,” said Mike Holmes, vice president of sales for Imperva. “Unlike reverse proxy products, SecureSphere delivers better performance, does not impose any changes to the existing network, and requires no manual tuning.”
Cybertek Holdings’ Chief Executive Officer SB Kim said, “Korea Life Insurance is a key customer for Cybertek. Imperva’s best-in-class web application and database security products married with Cybertek’s superior technical service provide a great value for our financial services customers.”
