Recently, Imperva announced that its award-winning Imperva Data Security Fabric now provides data-centric protection and compliance for enterprise data pools built on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Many security teams have resources and domain expertise gaps to ensure their data lake meets organizational compliance and security policies. These gaps might force organizations to choose between limiting the data they store in a data lake and putting themselves at risk of a data breach. Imperva Data Security Fabric can be deployed directly in any AWS Region using pre-built AWS CloudFormation templates. Imperva DSF will start discovering and monitoring data lakes once deployed. More than 400 pre-set vulnerability assessment tests are available for cloud databases on AWS.
"AWS allows organizations to quickly and securely build solutions that help them to reach new markets and deliver new services to end users," says Dan Neault, SVP and GM, Data Security, Imperva. "Imperva Data Security Fabric gives organizations building data lakes on AWS a streamlined experience for securing data and confidence that their data lakes comply," he added.
