Imperva the leader in application data security, has announced that the SecureSphere Web Application Firewall successfully satisfied all certification criteria to achieve the ICSA Labs' Web Application Firewall (WAF) Certification. This independent testing and certification program was developed to provide security managers with confidence in the products that secure vital application services from exploitation or attack.

"The Imperva SecureSphere appliance has the ability to handle many complex attack scenarios," said George Japak, managing director, ICSA Labs. "Imperva SecureSphere with software version successfully satisfied all of the ICSA Labs' Web Application Firewall certification criteria. The product stood up well against the type of real-world attacks it will face when put to use by Imperva's customers."

As part of the ICSA Labs' Web Application Firewall Certification process, analysts evaluated SecureSphere in six categories: documentation, administration, vulnerability testing, persistence, functional security and logging. In addition, SecureSphere was subjected to a battery of sophisticated attacks and penetration attempts.

"SecureSphere has once again proven that it meets the industry's exacting requirements for protecting Web applications and data from attack," said Amichai Shulman, CTO of Imperva. "Achieving ICSA Labs' Web Application Firewall Certification provides an additional measure of expert validation that SecureSphere delivers high levels of security and reliability for protecting against web application vulnerabilities."

ICSA Labs offers vendor-neutral testing and certification for hundreds of the world's top security products including many of the anti-virus, firewall, IPSec VPN, SSL VPN, network IPS and anti-spyware products commonly deployed today.

Additionally, ICSA Labs runs the Web Application Firewall Product Developers' Consortium, an industry group that oversees how Web application firewalls protect Web servers from attack. The consortium's mission is to educate end users about Web application firewall products, increase the adoption of Web application firewall technology and create objective and credible security criteria against which Web application firewall products can be tested and certified.
