Imperva acquires Prevoty to expand customers’ security capabilities
Imperva announced it signed an agreement to acquire Prevoty. Together, Imperva and Prevoty will provide security solutions to protect application services residing on-premises and in the cloud. This solution aligns with how organizations are developing and deploying application services in a hybrid cloud world.
The combination of Imperva and Prevoty will expand customers’ security capabilities and their visibility into how applications are accessed, what happens within the applications, and how applications and users interact with data.
With this expanded view across their business assets, customers will have deeper insights to help them understand and mitigate security risk.
“The acquisition is expected to advance our hybrid security strategy and further our mission to deliver best-in-class cybersecurity solutions,” said Chris Hylen, president and CEO of Imperva.
“Prevoty complements current Imperva application and data security offerings. When combined with our on-premises and cloud products, it will help businesses better protect themselves from attacks, prevent breaches and monitor security across their digital business. Combined with Imperva insights offerings, Prevoty will further help to identify the true risks to customers’ application services.”
Prevoty will enable customers using development to build security into their applications, extending Imperva’s reach into the DevOps market. Prevoty combines the context of the application itself with a security solution that integrates into continuous integration and continuous deployment life cycles.
“Our team is excited to join Imperva, a company with a long track record of cybersecurity leadership and innovation,” said Julien Bellanger, CEO of Prevoty.
“We believe that the combination of our solutions with Imperva’s portfolio of products will allow us to jointly create the gold standard in technology for application and data protection for organizations everywhere.”
Imperva has extended employment offers to all Prevoty employees and looks forward to them joining the team. Prevoty’s Los Angeles office will become an Imperva location.
The transaction is valued at $140 million in cash, subject to potential working capital and other adjustments, and is expected to close in the third quarter of fiscal 2018, subject to customary closing conditions.
