Imperva, Inc. (NYSE: IMPV),  has acquired two Israeli cloud  security information start-ups Incapsula Ltd. and Skyfence Ltd. The company also launched its SecureSphere Web Application Firewall (WAF) for Amazon Web Services (AWS). Imperva did not disclose the size of the deals.

Imperva also announced today the release of SecureSphere Web Application Firewall (WAF) for Amazon Web Services (AWS). The combination of these extends Imperva’s comprehensive data center security strategy across the cloud with solutions that are unmatched in the industry.

“Our acquisition strategy for Skyfence and Incapsula are very similar. We seeded Incapsula four years ago because we recognized that cloud delivery would change the web application security landscape, ” said Shlomo Kramer, CEO of Imperva. “In the case of Skyfence, we believe that Software as a Service (SaaS) delivery models for internally facing corporate applications will substantially change the landscape for data center security and compliance. We are investing in this space early to put us in the best position possible to help new and existing customers.”

Gartner predicts global spending on public cloud services will grow from $155B in 2014 to $210B in 20161. As cloud adoption accelerates, enterprises are prioritizing how to integrate and migrate existing systems, from Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) to Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems, to cloud-based platforms. Cloud services often run critical applications and store business-critical data, but the majority of existing security controls do not cover the range of different cloud deployments because they were designed for on-premise applications.

“For some time now, we’ve seen our customers take advantage of cloud-based services to reduce costs and increase flexibility. However, moving applications and data off-premise causes new and very significant risk exposure for organizations, ” said Mark Kraynak, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Marketing, Imperva. “The strategy we are unveiling today comprehensively addresses the dangerous security gaps raised by the move to the cloud.”

Imperva’s strategy covers security gaps with multiple cloud deployment models. For internally facing corporate applications, the move to the cloud obviates traditional on-premise activity monitoring and security solutions. To fill this gap, Skyfence delivers a cloud gateway that provides a comprehensive security and compliance stack. For externally facing production applications, the cloud is changing deployment in two ways. Some customers prefer a SaaS model for WAF delivery. directly meets that need with an application-aware global CDN platform that provides best-of-breed security, DDoS protection, load balancing, and failover solutions. Other customers prefer an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model by which they can leverage the economies of scale of their cloud provider to realize significant cost savings. For these customers, SecureSphere for AWS allows them to move their applications without sacrificing security.
