Qualys and Imperva Cooperate on Web Application Protection for Enterprises

Imperva : 03 March, 2010  (Company News)
SecureSphere Web Application Firewall from Imperva has been integrated with QualysGuard application scanning software to produce a powerfull application delivering comprehensive enterprise data security
Qualys, a provider of on demand IT security risk and compliance management solutions, and Imperva, data security experts, have announced the integration of Qualys' QualysGuard Web Application Scanning with Imperva's SecureSphere Web Application Firewall (WAF). This combination gives enterprises an ability to deploy a comprehensive security strategy that delivers powerful protection for business-critical Web applications. Savvis (Nasdaq: SVVS), a provider of outsourced internet infrastructure services for enterprises, will provide the Qualys-Imperva integrated solution as part of its hosting and Savvis Symphony cloud infrastructure solutions for enterprises.

"With this integration, Imperva and Qualys are advancing the use of WAF and vulnerability assessments as an integral part of the Secure Development Life Cycle. By using Imperva's WAF Virtual Patching, tightly integrated with Qualys' QualysGuard Web Application Scanning, customers can quickly shield against exploitation of discovered vulnerabilities," explained Amichai Shulman, Imperva's CTO.

"As attackers focus increasingly on exploiting web applications, organizations need ways to immediately mitigate the underlying vulnerabilities, especially since web applications have a longer patch cycle than operating systems and desktop applications," explained Wolfgang Kandek, CTO of Qualys. "Imperva's integration with QualysGuard helps customers achieve this goal and protect their web applications from attacks until they can patch them fully.'

The integration gives customers numerous benefits, including the ability to:

* Eliminate emergency fix and test cycles — immediately remediate discovered Web application vulnerabilities via a "virtual patch" without the need for development intervention.
* Prioritize Web application firewall alerts —accurate, verified security risks identified by QualysGuard Web Application Scanning helps precisely identify vulnerabilities and provides greater intelligence for attack correlation.
* Build more accurate security and compliance reports — specifically highlight attempts to exploit known vulnerabilities.
* Exceed the minimum PCI DSS 6.6 requirements — provide the best protection available against data compromise.

"Imperva and Qualys already enable Savvis to deliver separate, but important security services to our customers," said Chris Richter, vice president, security products and services for Savvis. "The integration of these technologies represents a significant advancement in web-application protection, and Savvis looks forward to offering it as part of our hosting and Savvis Symphony cloud infrastructure solutions for enterprises."
