Unequaled Adaptability and Efficiency

With Imperva SecureSphere, you don’t have to worry about “agent versus network” deployment choices. Competing solutions force you to choose between the two. However, IT environments often require both options because of network or server constraints. SecureSphere offers non-intrusive network monitoring appliances, lightweight agents, or a hybrid mix of the two. SecureSphere dramatically reduces the hidden hardware and software costs associated with competing products and built-in auditing tools because SecureSphere agents are highly efficient and easy to deploy and manage.

Imperva SecureSphere Agent for Big Data is the industry solution for Big Data. Imperva best practice for Big Data helps you complete your audits faster with fewer violations. Big Data deployments are difficult for legacy solutions to protect because of the security challenges associated with the highly distributed architectures. Most Big Data auditing solutions were not built to scale with the high volume, velocity and variety of sensitive data stored within Big Data environments. This is where the uniquely scalable and cost-efficient SecureSphere can help you efficiently demonstrate protection and compliance through automated processes, audit analysis, and customizable reports across Big Data deployments. In addition, SecureSphere Agent for Big Data accelerates security and compliance incident response and forensic investigation with centralized management and advanced drill-through analytics.


SecureSphere Agent for Big Data is an integral part of the unique Imperva cyber security vision of protecting applications, as well as data across all repositories, including structured, semi-structured, unstructured, and cloud. Unified policies can be applied across different data repositories, with a common easy-to-use interface.
