Imperva®, the data security leader, today announced the first integrated risk management platform for protecting databases, data, and the applications that use them. The new capabilities, which are available as part of SecureSphere version 7, combine risk scoring and visualization for databases and data allowing organizations to immediately detect and fix problems before a breach or audit failure can occur. The company also introduced the SecureSphere Discovery and Assessment Server, an automated solution for identifying sensitive data and vulnerabilities in databases. Finally, Imperva announced it has repackaged its five data security products as the SecureSphere Data Security Suite to align its offerings with customer deployment scenarios.
In its recently published U.S. Cost of a Data Breach Study, Ponemon Institute, a privacy and information management research firm reported that data breach incidents cost U.S. companies $202 per compromised customer record in 2008. This is an increase of 46 percent since Ponemon’s first annual report on breach costs in 2005. The SecureSphere Suite integrates risk management that spans the entire data security spectrum - discovery, assessment, scoring, monitoring, protection and audit. This allows customers to identify and remediate latent threats before they lead to breaches or regulatory compliance failures.
