“For the fourth year in a row, Imperva has been placed in the Leaders Quadrant. We believe that our ability to offer a flexible on-premises and cloud WAF plan via the new Imperva FlexProtect is one reason that Imperva continues to be a leader,” said Terry Ray, CTO of Imperva. “Our customers demand comprehensive protection, accurate detection, and flexible deployment options that keep pace with the ever-changing threat landscape, and I’m thrilled to say that we feel Gartner’s recognition proves this point again.”
