Imperva SecureSphere selected for Department of Homeland Security Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation program
Imperva, Inc., committed to protecting business-critical data and applications in the cloud and on-premises, today announced that the Imperva SecureSphere Web Application Firewall and SecureSphere Database Firewall have been selected for inclusion in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Tools/Continuous Monitoring as a Service (CMaaS) Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA). Through the BPA, the CDM Program provides federal departments and agencies with capabilities and tools that:
- Identify cyber security risks on an ongoing basis
- Prioritize these risks based on potential impacts
- Enable cyber security personnel to mitigate the most significant problems first
Congress established the CDM program to provide adequate, risk-based and cost-effective cyber security solutions and more efficiently allocate cyber security resources. Federal government agencies can now utilize the CDM BPA and leverage industry-leading Imperva solutions to analyze user access to critical web applications and protect their applications and databases from cyber attacks, data loss and theft.
“This selection is a testament to the depth of our experience spanning thousands of installations across civilian and defense agencies, and global enterprises,” said Mike Mooney, chief revenue officer at Imperva. “We will use the CDM program to make it even easier to apply our proven solutions and expertise to protect the mission-specific critical data and applications of federal agencies.”
The CDM blanket purchase agreement (BPA) is available to federal, state, local and tribal government entities. BPA participants achieve cost savings through tiered-price and task order discounts, enabling more efficient use of scarce resources. This strategy results in an enterprise approach to continuous diagnostics, including consistent application of best practices.
Bill Goodson, area vice president, federal government, at Imperva added, “The federal market is extremely important to us, and we are pleased to be included in the CDM program to help government agencies transform the way they protect our nation’s data and applications.”
