Perisher Resort Streamlines Data Security and PCI Compliance with Imperva
REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., August 14, 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 that Perisher Resort has implemented its Imperva Incapsula
cloud-based Web application firewall (WAF) service.
The transparent website security of Imperva Incapsula WAF will assist Perisher
Resort by enhancing enterprise data security for multiple platforms and
business units, and proactively meeting its Payment Card Industry (PCI) 6.6
mandatory compliance requirements.
Perisher Resort is responsible for over 100 ski slopes across four unique
resort areas including Perisher Valley, Guthega, Blue Cow, and Smiggin Holes,
plus the key business units of Skitube alpine railway, retail and food and
beverage facilities, guest accommodation, Snowsports School, and equipment
hire outlets. During peak season its network activity increases by up to 90
percent with an increase in users, devices, and network traffic as vacationers
monitor webcams for up-to-the-minute snow conditions.
After an automated spam bot email attack subjected the resort to thousands of
daily emails from unknown sources for a one week period, Perisher's IT team
decided to select a new security solution, one that provides greater awareness
and visibility of its network traffic.
"Our commercial operations are extensive, and in peak season trading
conditions we need to ensure that the influx to our network is both protected
and also meets PCI compliance requirements," said Wayne Grixti, Senior Network
and Systems Administrator, Perisher.
"Following a competitive tender review and pilot program, we selected Imperva
Incapsula WAF ahead of competitive offerings for its minimal management
overhead and ability to work in our existing environment with no impact on
network speeds. Imperva Incapsula has addressed the issue of multiple
platforms in a highly demanding environment painlessly. We strongly believe
that Imperva Incapsula WAF has helped us reduce our overall security risk and
proactively meet our PCI 6.6 compliance reporting in a highly cost-effective
manner," Grixti said.
With Imperva Incapsula WAF, the resort's websites and applications are better
protected against malicious automated attacks, such as cross-site scripting
(XSS) and SQL Injection (SQLi), and previously unknown threats. Imperva
Incapsula WAF is now monitoring traffic and performance more effectively
across the multiple e-commerce sites, further reducing network management time
for the IT team. Caching techniques of the Imperva Incapsula WAF have resulted
in additional cost savings with the resort's hosting provider by reducing
website bandwidth usage and lowering web server utilization.
Imperva Incapsula automatically generates PCI compliance reports for the
resort, assisting IT and management teams in identifying areas of compliance
prior to bank audits without the need for costly consulting engagements.
Stree Naidu, Vice President APAC Sales at Imperva, commented that the solution
is ideally suited for Perisher Resort, saying, "Imperva Incapsula's flexible
deployment and ease of use make it a practical and highly secure solution to
