Imperva looks to regional support in appointing M.Tech as ANZ distributor

  • 02 November, 2009 10:50

<p>SYDNEY, November 2. – Imperva®, the data security leader, today announced the appointment of M.Tech, leading regional IT security and network solutions, as its distributor for Australia and New Zealand.</p>
<p>M.Tech will offer Imperva’s SecureSphere data security suite and database firewall solutions to the local market, with support capabilities extending across Asia Pacific for customers with operations in the APAC region.</p>
<p>In addition to network-based monitoring and blocking of unauthorised activity by trusted insiders, SecureSphere is able to terminate local user activity and quarantine user accounts in the event of a security policy violation. This extends Imperva's unmatched database protection to a full 360 degrees.</p>
<p>Imperva’s Vice President Asia Pacific, Stree Naidu, said: “M.Tech’s impressive regional presence means that Australian-based customers with operations in any of 10 countries and 25 cities across APAC, these are covered by our new distributor’s substantial support and delivery capabilities.</p>
<p>“Moreover, the company’s relatively recent presence in ANZ will assure us of top mindshare in helping to generate business, in a 100 per cent two-tier channel model. Having a single distributor will allow us to leverage M.Tech’s considerable business development capabilities to the fullest.”</p>
<p>M.Tech Regional Business Manager for Australia and New Zealand, Paul Lim, sees Imperva as the answer to the growing threat of theft of credit card numbers and passwords, through poorly secured web application servers and databases. He says Imperva offers the best value in combating these threats and meeting strict compliance requirements.</p>
<p>“With its rich security solution’s easy-to-use features, Imperva is poised to lead in this space where other current security solutions are insufficient to deliver full protection,” said Lim.</p>
<p>He sees Imperva’s unique value proposition as the ability to deliver on two fronts: to fully understand and inspect complex layer 7 web application traffic, such as XML, and identify and stop threats before attacks are executed; and comprehensive database protection for all popular databases, including Oracle, SQL, Sybase etc. Elements of the database protection solution include a firewall, backed by tools for auditing and vulnerability assessment.</p>
<p>“In combination, Imperva is the only solution that delivers end-to-end application data protection,” said Lim. “With the regular enablement training we will conduct for Imperva’s partners, and the ease of administration of the SecureSphere solution, we are confident that Imperva will be a natural choice for ANZ organisations needing to secure their web application and database data.”</p>
