Imperva Develops Cloud Service Provider Certification

Data security company Imperva announced its PartnerSphere Cloud Alliance (PCA) program, designed to enable managed security service providers (MSSP), hosting providers and cloud providers to deliver data security for their cloud data centers.  The program sets parameters for select partners, helping MSSP customers identify cloud service providers whose technologies and services have been certified by Imperva.

"Growing interest in cloud-based security services has helped Imperva's Service Provider partners dramatically grow 2010 revenue 90 percent over the previous year," said Imperva VP of worldwide channels, Chris Cesio.  "With a formal program in place, enterprises using cloud services will have a certified list of partners who properly and effectively deploy and manage Imperva's market-leading technology. Our certification program provides our small, medium and large enterprise customers with easy and reliable access to advanced data security expertise through our partners, and allows them to offload daily management functions so that they can focus on their core competencies."

The PCA program ensures that MSSP partners have been certified according to eligibility requirements, which include:

•    Partner owns and operates a secure network operations center;
•    Demonstrated ability, with certified sales and technical staff, to implement Imperva's data security products; and
•    Staffed to deliver ongoing and reliable 24/7 support.

Today, Imperva's certified PCA partners include: Firehost, Incapsula, Nexusguard, Network, Integration Services (NIS), Rackspace, Savvis, Seccom Global, SecureWorks, Security On Demand and Solutionary.

These partners have deployed Imperva SecureSphere Web application firewall (WAF), which enables businesses to efficiently protect data transacted by Web applications. With a WAF, Imperva's cloud partners provide instant, cost-effective protection against attacks targeting applications for large and small enterprises. 

"We look forward to participating in the PartnerSphere Cloud Alliance program to continue to bring new security services to our clients," said Dan DeRosa, VP of Product Management for SecureWorks.
