We are flattered that vendors like IBM have adopted our “headlines” approach to security awareness, as it validates and reiterates the fact that businesses and agencies worldwide need to get serious about advanced cyber security. As our recent Imperva Incapsula DDoS Trend Report points out, every hour of unmitigated DDoS costs a business $40,000. Persistent attacks entail losses of hundreds of thousands—if not millions.
Businesses today need solutions that can help them discover risks, protect assets, and comply with regulations in the cloud and on-premises, as well as keep up with new threats that are exposed every day.
As our CEO, Anthony Bettencourt, recently told Bloomberg Business, security – protecting the business critical data and apps of the largest enterprises around the world – is all we think about day in and day out. It’s not a weekend hobby, and we don’t do anything else.
In fact, check out these examples of how Imperva has dedicated all of our hard work to help customers stay secure:
- Leader in the 2015 Gartner Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewall
- Republic Bank Customer Video
- Hacker Initiative Intelligence Report
Clearly these examples show that we LIVE and BREATHE security at Imperva. It’s what our company is structured around and what we excel at.
You know, I started my career at IBM and think it is a great infrastructure company and gave me a great foundation. But with all the money IBM spends on marketing, I’m a little surprised that they so closely mirrored the campaign we’ve had in market for months…but then again, imitation certainly is the most sincere form of flattery!
