Invests And Jointly Develops ‘SecureAT’, A First-Of-Its-Kind Web Application Firewall (WAF) Platform In India
Netmagic, an NTT Communications company and India’s only Datacenter Infrastructure Lifecycle Management (DILM) service provider, today announced their partnership with Imperva, Inc. (NYSE: IMPV), pioneering the third pillar of enterprise security with a new layer of protection designed specifically for physical and virtual data centers, to deploy a first-of-its-kind Web Application Firewall (WAF) platform in India. Based on Imperva’s award-winning SecureSphere platform, Netmagic has invested and jointly developed a cloud-based service – SecureAT – that will be offered as part of its managed security services portfolio.
Commenting on the announcement, Nitin Mishra, Senior Vice President – Product Management, Netmagic said, “Imperva is unparalleled in the Web Application Firewall (WAF) segment globally and we are pleased to have forged this alliance with them. The WAF platform is now imperative in Indian enterprises’ highly complex threat landscape and with this announcement, we have the first-mover advantage in the market. SecureAT has already seen adoption in the Indian enterprise space – a leading global telecommunications company and a leading bank headquartered in South-East Asia have already deployed the service.”
Stree Naidu, Imperva Vice President for Asia Pacific and Japan (APJ) said, “With its booming economy, India is a hotbed of activity. It’s only natural that data security is a critical concern for organizations here. Our partnership with Netmagic will extend the power of our comprehensive data center security solutions to Indian enterprises, so their data and their customers’ data will be secure and accessible.”
SecureAT will be offered with distinct Netmagic advantages which include the following–
1. Security-as-a-Service Model: Enterprises pay only affordable and predictable Pay-as-use monthly expenses without incurring expensive capital outlays
2. High Availability of the service
3. Bundled SOC Support: Netmagic Security Operations Center (SOC) is staffed with the right skills and experience to extract optimal value from the security solution
4. Short Deployment Cycle: The service can be deployed by an enterprise within 48 hours
SecureAT will also include Imperva’s industry-leading innovation – ThreatRadar Community Defense, the first crowd-sourced threat intelligence service that aggregates and validates attack data from WAFs deployed globally to protect against hackers, automated clients, and zero-day attacks.
