Imperva Chicago , IL 60602
Despite spending billions of dollars every year on network security equipment, encryption solutions, log management and a host of other information security controls, bad actors continue to pierce our defenses through the very web applications that we deploy for our users' benefit. The latent mistakes in our own software are used as the vector to steal confidential and proprietary data, to access our systems without authorization, and to disrupt critical services.
Securing our applications requires radical thinking: applications must defend themselves.
Imperva / Prevoty's unique Application Security solution incorporates a lightning-fast, attack detection technique known as "LangSec" with easy-to-deploy autonomous software agents that neutralize attacks in realtime and provide new insights into user and application behavior. Organizations rely on Imperva / Prevoty's high-performing RASP products to reduce risk and eliminate vulnerability backlogs.
