Exclusive Networks Malaysia Adds Imperva to Cyber and Cloud Distribution Portfolio
Exclusive Networks Malaysia has been appointed as an official distributor for Imperva, the cybersecurity leader whose mission is to protect business critical assets from ever-changing cybercriminal attacks. The partnership extends Imperva’s existing global relationship with Exclusive Networks into Malaysia for the first time, widening and accelerating market penetration for its analyst-recognized cybersecurity solutions that secure data and applications wherever they reside, be it in the cloud or on-premises.
“This is great news for our reseller community both within Malaysia and across the region, providing new opportunities to address application, data and cloud security challenges with a proven market leader,” said Jonathan Juay, VP Asia at Exclusive Networks. “It will also make a significant difference to public and private sector organisations in Malaysia, as they will have greater access to the latest market-ready WAF and cloud WAF innovations that can be deployed rapidly and integrated into existing environments with the utmost simplicity. We are excited about the opportunities of deepening our association with Imperva and look forward to continuing our successful approach in the Malaysia market.”
With a wide portfolio of Application, Data, and Cloud Security solutions, Imperva protects and provides a secure foundation for its customers’ businesses. Once deployed, Imperva solutions proactively identify, evaluate and eliminate current and emerging threats, so businesses never have to choose between innovating for customers and protecting what matters most.
“By maintaining a robust cybersecurity posture, organisations will be able to minimise cybersecurity incidents and recover faster from cyberattacks, allowing them to focus on delivering their core products and services to their customers,” said Wang Xihan, AVP Asia. “Exclusive Networks is a Global VAD (Value-Added Distributor) for Cybersecurity and Cloud solutions that can help to accelerate local market entry and growth for solution providers like Imperva.”
Imperva has been recognised as a Leader in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for WAF for the sixth consecutive year due to its high customer satisfaction for its WAF appliance capabilities, with a clear strategy of innovating where it can benefit both cloud WAF and WAF appliances. Its strong market position was helped by its ability to offer flexible licensing for organisations as well as strong product strategy of focusing on the most relevant threat vectors for WAF and WAAP (Web Application and API Protection) prospective buyers.
The announcement of Imperva’s distribution in Malaysia is timely. According to a March 2019 Cyber Security Malaysia report, ransomware was one of six dominant cyber threats received and handled by MyCERT (Malaysia Computer Emergency Response Team) in 2018. The most high profile ransomware attack in Malaysia took place last year in November 2018, when one of Malaysia’s largest media companies, found its email server held hostage by cyber attackers demanding a ransom payment of RM26.42 million.
Imperva’s Data Security solutions are designed to address Malaysian enterprise breaches such as ransomware, phishing attacks, and web defacements through various security measures, such as data risk analytics, monitoring, masking, discovery, classification, policy-based monitoring, and deception technology. Malaysian enterprises with apps and data in cloud infrastructure will also benefit from Imperva’s patented Cloud WAF technologies that boost web security and automate management.
