Imperva to Acquire jSonar

Imperva to Acquire jSonar, Together Will Lead A New Generation of Data Security

Imperva, Inc., the cybersecurity leader whose mission is to protect data and all paths to it, announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire jSonar, the leader in modern database security. The acquisition will pioneer a bold new approach to securing data through all paths, including on-premises, cloud, multi-cloud and Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS), delivering an integrated approach across data and applications.

The evolution of modern data architecture has worked against security professionals, making securing data more difficult at every turn. Scale and complexity of data assets have grown exponentially, and security teams are faced with the difficult task of expeditiously securing diverse environments while lacking estate-wide analytics and control. Combining jSonar’s ability to quickly secure data stores no matter what kind or where they live, with Imperva’s leadership in app and data security, will spearhead a fundamentally new approach to data security to help enterprises address today’s and tomorrow’s needs.

Imperva Data Security discovers databases on the network, classifies sensitive data, detects database vulnerabilities, and applies security controls to data access. jSonar’s platform simplifies the process of establishing universal security, compliance and privacy controls, enabling integration with all data repositories across any on-premises and cloud environment from within one platform, while alleviating high costs and development efforts thanks to built-in automation and data-centric playbooks.

Ron Bennatan – a 25-year data security veteran and founder of both jSonar and DAM provider Guardium – will join to lead the Imperva Data Security business, comprising both jSonar and Imperva data security product lines. This combination will form a large development organization dedicated to data security. Additionally, jSonar’s analytics and Security Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR) platform will be used throughout the Imperva solution stack.
