(NYSE: IMPV), a pioneer and leader of a new category of data security solutions for high-value business data in the data center, today announced it has extended the fraud prevention capabilities of the Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewall (WAF) and ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention to include integration with ReputationManager 360 from iovation, a provider of device reputation protection against online fraud and abuse. The Imperva SecureSphere WAF can leverage ReputationManager 360 to identify and block high-risk devices that conduct fraud campaigns.

"Chargebacks, account takeovers, and other fraud scams can impact organizations' bottom lines, as well as damage business reputation and customer loyalty," said iovation Director of Business Development Steve Hanson. "By adding the prescriptive device reputation analysis of ReputationManager 360 to the Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewall, customers can effectively and efficiently mitigate fraudulent transactions." Enterprises today should deploy multiple fraud security solutions to combat the many fraud techniques used by cybercriminals. A layered approach to protection against fraud is a security best practice, and also is recommended as part of FFIEC authentication guidance. Because Imperva SecureSphere can integrate with iovation and other fraud prevention vendors, Imperva customers can roll out multiple fraud security solutions quickly, without needing to modify their Web applications. Imperva SecureSphere consolidates fraud prevention management and enforcement in a central location-the Web application firewall-simplifying deployment and operations.

"By partnering with iovation, our customers can take advantage of the ReputationManager 360 technology to identify and mitigate against fraud through a unique combination of device identification and reputation analysis. And because it's integrated into the Imperva SecureSphere WAF, users can monitor and enforce fraud policies from their familiar SecureSphere user interface," said Amichai Shulman, CTO at Imperva.

The Imperva SecureSphere WAF and ThreatRadar Fraud Prevention are designed to help organizations reduce fraud expenses, unify fraud security management, and provide visibility into fraud incidents. Benefits include: - Streamlined deployment:Costly and time-consuming Web application development projects are avoided because SecureSphere transparently injects fraud security checks into Web transactions without requiring any application changes.

- Up-to-date fraud protection:Customers can take advantage of iovation's latest defenses and configuration updates without needing to recode Web applications.
