Imperva to Acquire Incapsula and Skyfence; Introduces SecureSphere WAF for Amazon Web Services

Imperva has agreed to acquire cloud security gateway startup Skyfence and has an agreement in principle to acquire the remaining shares of cloud-based web application security company Incapsula. Imperva also announced the release of SecureSphere Web Application Firewall (WAF) for Amazon Web Services (AWS). Any one of these three developments would be significant on their own. Together, they extend Imperva’s comprehensive data center security strategy across the cloud in a way that is un-matched in the industry.
