Safeguard sensitive and personal data

Changing threats, difficult audits, and evolving regulations make protecting sensitive data, maintaining data compliance, and ensuring consumer privacy difficult. Success requires visibility into sensitive and personal data, with the controls to protect that data and the ability to unify management across cloud, on-premises, and in hybrid environments.


Imperva has been a market and technology leader in data-centric security since 2001, and with the acquisition of jSonar in 2020, increased the pace of innovation.

Protecting data is challenging with any sized staff

Many organizations don’t know where all of their sensitive and personal data is, are unaware of its risks, and don’t have capacity to fulfill modern privacy obligations. The manual nature of many processes makes it impossible to effectively scale.

  • Ignorance is as bad as compromise for regulatory fines

    If you don’t know where all your regulated data is, then you are not compliant, and your risk is severe. It’s that simple.

  • Compliance failures are unacceptable costs for business

    Damage to your brand, customer attrition, loss of competitive advantage, increased regulatory scrutiny, and fines are only a few of the costs you incur from a compliance incident.

  • Privacy regulations give data subjects more power and increase your accountability

    When consumers submit access requests, millions of mistake corrections, limits to use, and data deletion must be completed within days.

  • Data breaches only become newsworthy at the point of theft

    Attacks reach organizational assets every day, but once they move laterally to sensitive data, the breach becomes a costly incident, harming reputation and leading to customer loss.

Discover, classify, and assess sensitive and personal data

Run an automated, continuous discovery and classification process that finds sensitive and personal data, either on-premise or in the cloud, so you always have an up to date inventory.

  • Know where data is, who has access, and if it’s protected

    Automatically assess user entitlements and verify proper configurations and up-to-date CVE patches to ensure you meet industry standards for securing data.

  • Ensure compliant data handling behavior and detect emerging threats

    Constantly monitor who is accessing data, from where, and what they are doing with it. Detect potential insider threats or compromised accounts - the most common cause of data breaches.

  • Collect records necessary for compliance evidence and forensics

    Compliance and security are continuous processes. Simplify the process by automating auditing and reporting.
