Press Release

Imperva, the Global Leader in Data Security is Committed to the China Market

Its Q2 2010 results reflects the positive response from the market

Beijing – August 11, 2010 – the global leader in data security, demonstrated its success and value of its data security solutions with its strong Q2 2010 financial results.

Just like organizations around the world, Chinese enterprises need to make security a top priority. In today's world, no one is exempt from cyber threats. In 2009, 94% of all data breaches are database or application compromises1 , yet more than 90% of the $16 billion spent on security in 2009 was on other2, which means that enterprises would need to spend their budget more wisely and that the market size is huge.

The Asia Pacific Japan (APJ) region recorded 51 per cent quarter-on-quarter growth, and APJ Vice President Stree Naidu said: “China's contribution to APJ's results was significant – it achieved 84 per cent increase in Q2 2010 over Q2 2009. The success of the China team has fuelled our expansion plans and commitment in this region.”

Imperva co-founder and CEO, Shlomo Kramer, said: “The company's performance in Q2 was impressive. Businesses today recognise that data security is a strategic imperative and that early detection and response to cyber attacks is a critical part of securing your organisation.”
