Imperva records 55 per cent-plus growth in Q2 2010
SYDNEY – August 5, 2010—Imperva, the global leader in data security, announced today that it achieved 55 per cent growth in Q2 2010 over Q2 2009, marking the company’s largest ever second quarter.
The company's success is driven by significant growth worldwide, increasing its global customer count to more than 1,200 enterprises. The quarter was also marked by the release of a new virtual product suite and the launch of Imperva’s presence in Latin America. The company also saw significant uptake in its reputation-based security solution for automated attacks, ThreatRadar, since its release in March.
The Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) region recorded 51 per cent quarter-on-quarter growth, and APJ Vice President Stree Naidu said: “Australia made a significant contribution to the APJ result.”
Imperva co-founder and CEO, Shlomo Kramer, said: “The company’s performance in Q2 was impressive. Businesses today recognise that data security is a strategic imperative and that early detection and response to cyber attacks is a critical part of securing your organisation.”
Key highlights from Q2 2010 include:
# Significant overseas growth, including 51 percent growth quarter-over-quarter in APAC.
# Dramatic growth in sales of ThreatRadar, the company’s reputation-based security solution for automated attacks. Since its introduction in March 2010, sales of ThreatRadar have grown 109 per cent.
# The appointment of Rocky Pimentel to the Board of Directors. Formerly McAfee’s CFO, Mr Pimentel will chair Imperva’s Audit Committee.
# # The release of the SecureSphere Virtual Appliances to accommodate the unique data security needs of dynamic and virtualised enterprise environments.
# The release of a ground-breaking study, ‘The State of Application Security’, with White Hat Security. The survey, conducted by the Ponemon Institute, found that most businesses, despite having numerous mission-critical applications accessible via their websites, fail to allocate sufficient financial and technical resources to secure and protect Web applications, leaving corporate data vulnerable to theft.
“Our vision of data security is again validated by the market’s uptake of the SecureSphere Data Security Suite, and we will continue to deliver innovative solutions and cutting edge research to meet the data security needs of our enterprise customers,” said Kramer.
