Data Security

Securing your data from attacks and simplifying regulatory compliance is crucial for online business. Imperva data security solutions do both.

Secure what matters most – your data

What is data security? Data is the lifeblood of your organization, and the target of cybercriminals. Protect your data from ransomware, extortion and theft while you prevent downtime, keep your customers’ trust, and safeguard your brand’s reputation.

Uncover hidden risks

You can’t protect what you don’t know about. Discover forgotten or rogue databases, classify sensitive data, and assess databases for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations.

Protect data from external and internal threats

Don’t be the next breach headline. People with legitimate access to your data pose the greatest risk. Detect and contain malicious, careless and compromised users.

Safeguard your data – all of it – everywhere

You have databases, files, big data, clouds, mainframes, structured and unstructured data, and data you don’t even know you have. Every bit must be protected. Deploy unified security policies across all of it, on premises, in the cloud, and in hybrid environements.

Comply with data security and privacy regulations

HIPAA. GDPR. SOX. You know the drill. Compliance is challenging. Imperva makes it a lot easier.

How Imperva Data Security Protects Your Data

You can’t protect what you can’t find. Imperva SecureSphere automates database discovery and classification, so you can find databases, including rogue or forgotten ones, and classify data.

Monitors all data activity

No one accesses anything without you knowing about it. Imperva monitors and audits all data access activity, including privileged users and applications. Continuous monitoring detects and alerts you to unauthorized access, gives you details to take action, and allows you to block instantly. You’ll be so efficient, you’ll be able to monitor more data sources with fewer resources.

Masks sensitive data

Not everyone needs to see everything. Imperva reduces the risk of data breach by masking sensitive data in non-production environments. Intelligent masking algorithms replace sensitive data with realistic, fictional data. Comply with data protection and privacy regulations such as GDPR and PCI DSS. Enable data-driven business processes without exposing sensitive data.
