SEEK Implements Imperva SecureSphere for Protection against Automated Client
SecureSphere Web Application Firewall
Protects Security of Online Business and Candidate Details
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., July 8, 2013 -Imperva, Inc. (NYSE: IMPV), a pioneer
and leader of a new category of business security solutions for critical
applications and high value data in the data center, announced today that SEEK
Limited (ASX Code: SEK) has implemented Imperva SecureSphere Web Application
Firewall (WAF) to protect the data it holds on both candidates and recruiters,
and to improve overall application performance levels. Following the
successful pilot program managed by Imperva partner Dimension Data,
SecureSphere WAF reduced site scraping issues by over 80 percent and was
adopted as the primary security solution for SEEK.
Unlike most organizations, SEEK's core business is entirely online. With
150,000 jobs posted online at any one time, and over 25.6 million visitors to
SEEK each month, this makes the successful and secure operation of the site
critical for the organization.
"One of SEEK's strategies is to be the single and core marketplace for
candidates and recruiters," said Joe Powell, Managing Director, SEEK. "Our
biggest asset is the data that is available through our website. The website
is the life of the business, and that's why protecting it and being able to
keep it online and as highly available as possible is critical to the
SecureSphere WAF combines multiple security engines into a single transparent
web defense, effectively sitting in front of an organization's applications
and website to protect them from technical attacks such as SQL injection and
cross-site scripting; from business logic attacks like application layer
denial of service and site scraping; and also from e-commerce and web-based
fraud. It can block web application attacks by identifying traffic originating
from these bots and other malicious sources to stop automated attacks.
Additionally, it is capable of virtually patching vulnerabilities through
integration with web application vulnerability scanners, reducing the window
of exposure and impact of emergency fixes.
"SEEK's online business operations required a real-time solution that could
identify and block automated attacks, which now make up over 50 percent of
e-commerce site traffic around the globe," outlined Shlomo Kramer, CEO,
Imperva. "By identifying the extent and sophistication of the site scraping
issue, SecureSphere WAF has become a critical component of SEEK's overall
business and security strategy."
