<p>Sydney, November 17. – Imperva®, the data security leader, today announced the appointment of Seccom Global, one of Asia Pacific’s fastest growing information security providers (MSSPs), in a partnership covering Australia, New Zealand and more than a dozen other nations worldwide.</p>
<p>Seccom will offer Imperva’s SecureSphere data security suite and database firewall solutions to a broad spectrum of markets, ranging from Fiji through India to China, as well as the UK, USA and Canada. Full APAC market coverage also includes the Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Malaysia, Korea, Japan and Indonesia,</p>
<p>Imperva’s Vice President Asia Pacific, Stree Naidu, said: “Almost 5,000 organisations worldwide are relying on Imperva to prevent sensitive data theft, protect against data breaches, secure applications, and ensure data confidentiality. Now Seccom customers can protect their data and applications from hackers who target large and small organisations.”</p>

This extends Imperva's unmatched database protection to a full 360 degrees.</p>

Matthews explained: “The partnership with Imperva represents an outstanding opportunity to help customers quickly and cost effectively secure their data.
