Imperva Data Security Fabric helps organizations protect applications and data on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure


Imperva has extended its hybrid data security platform to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to help customers simplify migration and automate compliance monitoring of cloud data instances.

Imperva Data Security Fabric (DSF) has achieved Powered by Oracle Cloud Expertise status and is now available on Oracle Cloud Marketplace, providing added value to Oracle Cloud customers.

Imperva DSF provides unified data-centric security controls across the entire data estate, delivering scalability and a simpler infrastructure. Through a single interface, Imperva Data Security Fabric helps discover and protect sensitive data types, including structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data, as enterprise customers migrate from globally dispersed data centers to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.

Additionally, Imperva DSF supports multiple versions of Oracle Database, including Oracle Database 19c and Oracle Database 21c, as well as Oracle Autonomous Transaction Processing (ATP) and Oracle Autonomous Data Warehouse (ADW). Imperva is also a member of Oracle Partner Network (OPN).

“The cloud represents a huge opportunity for our partner community,” said David HicksGroup Vice President, ISV Cloud Global Business Development, Oracle.

“Imperva’s commitment to innovation with Oracle Cloud along with knowledgeable execution can help our joint customers deploy cloud-based cybersecurity solutions optimized to meet critical business needs,” added Hicks.

“Improving the customer experience is one of the top priorities for the business, driving digital transformation. As customers become increasingly aware of the value of their data and the resulting risks, companies must consider security and data protection as part of this transformation,” said Jennifer Glennresearch director for the IDC Security and Trust group.

“For Oracle customers considering moving to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Imperva Data Security Fabric can provide visibility and automation into every environment, helping to protect critical data at every stage of migration,” continued Glenn.

“Imperva and Oracle have worked together for years, helping joint customers monitor and secure their sensitive data,” says Dan NeaultSVP and GM, Data Security, Imperva.

“We are excited to share that we have extended our platform to customers migrating their data to OCI with Imperva Data Security Fabric, now available in the Oracle Cloud Marketplace,” said Neault.

Security complexity hampered cloud agility

The cloud has revolutionized computing, providing organizations with a strategic accelerator to pursue new market initiatives and adapt their operations in the face of new business challenges and opportunities. However, uncertainty about how best to overcome security risks and ensure regulatory compliance has historically slowed cloud adoption.

Significant differences between on-premises and cloud database environments have led organizations to try to extend traditional database security tools to their cloud environments. They often encounter unavoidable limitations, from the technical inability to install agents on database-as-a-service (DBaaS) deployments, to the practical limitations of directing all cloud database traffic through a proxy service.

This has led organizations to use a patchwork of individual tools. This approach increases the likelihood of human error, unnecessarily increasing the risk of breach or non-compliance.

Automating many data security and regulatory compliance tasks reduces, and in some cases can eliminate, the burden placed on data security teams to manually maintain compliance updates, records, and audit trails .

Imperva DSF can help save time and reduce the cost of securing data by unifying security tasks including data activity monitoring, sensitive data discovery, classification, compliance, analytics risk and threat detection.

Powered by Oracle Cloud, Imperva DSF provides information security managers with an approach to achieving security, compliance, and governance results. Security teams can benefit from simplifying the protection of the organization’s diverse data ecosystem, with centralized administration, integration with other IT security investments, and broad database coverage.
