             Imperva Sets a New Standard for Data Center Security
                    with the Release of SecureSphere 10.0

       Customers gain unmatched protection against modern threats with
                     industry-leading threat intelligence

Redwood Shores, Calif., April 23, 2013 -Imperva, Inc. (NYSE: IMPV), a pioneer
and leader of a new category of business security solutions for critical
applications and high-value business data in the data center, today announced
the release of SecureSphere 10.0. With today's announcement, Imperva raises
the bar for Web application firewall (WAF) effectiveness by unveiling
ThreatRadar Community Defense, the first crowd-sourced threat intelligence
service that aggregates and validates attack data from WAFs to protect against
hackers, automated clients, and zero-day attacks. Imperva is also extending
its unmatched security coverage for data center assets by introducing
SecureSphere Directory Services Monitoring plus support for NFS, IMS, and
PostgreSQL.

"As vendors deploy more shared-intelligence features in their products, make
use of them; they can make you more effective and more versatile in responding
more quickly to today's threats," said Anton Chuvakin, research director at
Gartner, and Ramon Krikken, research VP at Gartner, in a May 2012 report
titled Security Information and Event Management Futures.

Imperva ThreatRadar Community Defense delivers crowd-sourced threat
intelligence to Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewalls (WAF).
Gathering live attack data from WAFs deployed around the world and
distributing this data in near-real time, Community Defense fortifies the
entire community against emerging threats. Community Defense translates the
attack feeds it gathers into attack patterns, reputation data, and policies to
safeguard Imperva-protected Websites from similar attacks and attack sources.

"Together, Imperva ThreatRadar Reputation Services and Community Defense pull
crowd-sourced data from around the world to provide heightened insight into
the identity of these attackers," said Amichai Shulman, Co-Founder and CTO of
Imperva. "As the first company to deliver crowd-sourced threat intelligence
for Web application firewalls, we continue to innovate to deliver what we
believe are the best, most advanced Web application security solutions
available to meet the evolving needs of our customers."

Additionally, a Hacker Intelligence Initiative report, released today by
Imperva, found that threat-blocking efficiency increased with crowd-sourced
threat intelligence for the Web applications tracked in the report. The
three-month long study of 60 Web applications demonstrates that cross-site
information sharing (i.e., crowd sourcing) results in threat intelligence that
enables protection against large-scale campaigns. For more information, or to

Along with ThreatRadar Community Defense which is part of the SecureSphere WAF
family, today's release highlights two additional areas of the SecureSphere
platform:

SecureSphere File Security: SecureSphere Directory Services Monitoring (DSM)
enriches Imperva's File and Database Security products by providing the
ability to audit, alert and report on changes made in Active Directory. DSM
allows organizations to continuously monitor critical activity and meet
compliance requirements, making it a comprehensive platform for protecting
critical applications and data across various systems in the data center.
Additionally, added support for NFS extends Imperva's unstructured data
coverage into additional environments including Unix and Linux.

SecureSphere Database Security: SecureSphere 10.0 offers agent technology
enhancements and extended support for IBM's Information Management System
(IMS) and PostgreSQL, to provide enterprise-class database audit and
protection solutions to organizations, large and small.

SecureSphere 10.0 is available immediately. For more information please visit
