Imperva becomes member of PCI security standards council.

Imperva : 17 September, 2007  (Company News)
Membership of Payment Card Industry standards council demonstrates Imperva's commitment to the development and maintenance of security standards within the industry.
Imperva has joined the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Security Standards Council founded by American Express, Discover Financial Services, JCB, MasterCard Worldwide, and Visa International. The Council is an open global forum for the ongoing development, enhancement, storage, dissemination and implementation of security standards for account data protection.

Members of the PCI Council recommend changes, provide input on future initiatives, nominate representatives for election to the PCI Security Standards Council Advisory Board, and have access to and ability to comment on drafts of potential changes to security standards in advance, as well as influence the direction of the organization overall. Imperva brings a unique perspective to the Council with its combined expertise in web application protection and database monitoring/security.

The PCI Data Security Standard (DSS) represents a common set of industry tools and measurements to help ensure the safe handling of sensitive information. Initially created by aligning Visa's Account Information Security (AIS)/Cardholder Information Security (CISP) programs with MasterCard's Site Data Protection (SDP) program, the standard provides an actionable framework for developing a robust account data security process - including preventing, detecting and reacting to security incidents.

"More than 50 percent of Imperva's business is driven by PCI specific projects, so we bring deep experience in PCI compliance to the PCI Security Standards Council," said Shlomo Kramer, president and CEO of Imperva. "Earlier this year we introduced the Imperva ADC Insight Services, which provide the only out-of-the-box solution targeted to PCI application and database security requirements. This expertise will enable us to make valuable contributions to the Council in the areas of web application protection and database security."
