Informzaschita’s Partner Imperva as the Leader in the Gartner Quadrant for Web Application Solutions

Being a leading global consulting agency in the IT sphere, Gartner has published a new Magic Quadrant for Web Application Firewall solutions. Imperva has become the only manufacturer in the Leaders category. According to Gartner, the company has demonstrated the integrity of its strategic market vision and ability to implement WAF solutions on the market.

In its report, Gartner appreciated Imperva’s positions among its competitors and noted that the developer “has been the leader on the market of web application security systems making its rivals respond to its activities by introducing new solutions.” Gartner also took into consideration the feedback from customers and their negative comments on problems related to the system deployment and efficiency of their operations. Imperva’s General Director Shlomo Kramer says: “Taking into account the vulnerability of websites to all sorts of threats, we need to ensure integrated protection of such resources. We need to remember that a website is a ‘door’ to the most valuable assets of an enterprise, and intruders often use this door. We are happy that market players understand the need in developing dedicated web application security tools, and being the absolute leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant   is a great honor for us.”

According to Gartner, the global WAF market grew by 30% to amount to $ 337 mln in 2013. Web application security systems are in the greatest demand in North America (45% of the total demand) and Asian-Pacific Region (about 26%) with the remaining sales volume falling on Europe, Middle East and Africa.

Informzaschita has been successfully implementing Imperva solutions for major banks and commercial enterprises since 2011 including Sberbank, Alfabank, X5 Retail Group, Electronic Moscow (E-Moskva) and other Top 400 companies. Yuliya Ivanova, Informzaschita’s Product Manager, says: “We are happy that Imperva has become a part of the Gartner Magic Quadrant both as the best developer of WAF systems and the absolute and only leader in its segment. We are proud of being the top-ranking vendor’s partner and implementing its solutions in the territory of Russia and CIS.”
