Companies mentioned in this article: Imperva, Inc.

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- 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, today announced the company has acquired real-time mainframe security auditing agents from Tomium Software.

The Tomium Software solution enhances the security of z/OS mainframe environments by enabling continuous auditing of DB2 and IMS database activity with high efficiency and comprehensive event monitoring. Tomium Software monitoring agents stream real-time audit data to the Imperva SecureSphere platform, a centralized security management and reporting framework. Imperva previously had an OEM agreement to license the Tomium Software solution, and with the acquisition will natively integrate the Tomium technology into the SecureSphere platform to unify auditing, reporting, and real-time monitoring across heterogeneous platforms.

“Imperva has leveraged Tomium Software real-time auditing technology to heighten our ability to protect critical assets on the mainframe,” said Mark Kraynak, Senior Vice President, Worldwide Marketing, Imperva. “With the acquisition, we look forward to extending the Imperva solution to include needed data security functionality to further protect against modern attacks and achieve regulatory compliance.”

“At Tomium Software, we have a laser focus on protecting z/OS environments for the most demanding users around the world,” said Dan Hoffmann, Director, Product Management for Tomium Software. “We have been working closely with Imperva since 2010 and we are thrilled to join the team. We look forward to accelerating our development of new products and natively integrating z/OS security data into Imperva’s SecureSphere.”

Imperva has hired all key Tomium Software employees. The asset acquisition demonstrates Imperva’s commitment to provide best-of-breed cross platform security solutions. For the first time, users of IBM mainframes have the opportunity to choose a database auditing solution including the mainframe developed entirely by one company.
