Imperva Protects NetRefer

NetRefer deploys Imperva Incapsula for Improved Website Security with Comprehensive DDoS and Web Application Firewall Protection

Malta – Feb. 15, 2018Imperva, Inc. (NASDAQ: IMPV), a cybersecurity leader that delivers best-in-class solutions to protect data and applications on-premises, in the cloud, and across hybrid environments, today announced that NetRefer, a leading provider of performance marketing software, is using the Imperva Incapsula service to protect its website from cyberattacks. NetRefer deployed the Incapsula service across its customer-facing websites to ensure protection from malicious attacks using the service’s Web Application Firewall (WAF) feature.

NetRefer provides performance marketing software that helps companies automate their entire affiliate life cycles, from enrolment through CRM management, tracking, finance and rewards management, payments, and more.

While NetRefer had DDoS protection from its hosting environment, it was extremely limited in its ability to scrub traffic, and it lacked a WAF. In addition, the hosting environment was not able to provide the kind of cross-platform visibility that NetRefer’s IT team needed to enable them to see and fix problems early on.

After investigating various solutions, and consulting a leading market research firm’s report on Web Application Firewalls, the NetRefer IT team found Incapsula to be the only cloud-based WAF that met its requirements of being easy to use, able to keep downtime to a minimum, and fully scalable, fast and reliable.

Christian Cutajar, IT manager for NetRefer said – “Being able to identify threats and block them on the fly is critical. By strengthening our security, we can show our clients that their data is safe.”

Since deploying Incapsula, NetRefer can now route its traffic at the DNS level instead of dealing with multiple on-premise devices. This allows them to focus on moving towards a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution for the long term.

More importantly, the DDoS mitigation service protects their systems from continuous attacks. It also provides the increased visibility they need to find and deal with potential security threats and malicious activity before they become serious problems.

“We now have a granular view of events and traffic across all our environments,” continued Cutajar. Incapsula has significantly improved our security posture and reduced downtime by fending off attacks. My IT team now knows when there are attempts to access protected resources on our website, such as SQL injection requests on NetRefer’s clients’ front-end systems and XSS on specific page parameters.”

“Securing our core services and avoiding system hijacking is absolutely critical. Investing in a solution that gives us, and our customers, peace of mind is a must, and we’ve found that with Incapsula,” concluded Cutajar.

While NetRefer engaged Imperva to solve their DDoS mitigation needs with the Incapsula service, they also achieved a significant performance benefit by activating the Incapsula Content Delivery Network. “We saw a 50 percent performance improvement on our site after turning on the Incapsula CDN,” said Cutajar.

“Performance is of utmost importance to NetRefer, and Imperva Incapsula with its scalability and comprehensive cyber security protection is the ideal offering for its platform-as-a-service solution,” said Terry Ray, CTO for Imperva. “NetRefer can keep its customers’ data safe while improving performance and visibility at the same time.”

Imperva Incapsula is a cloud-based WAF delivered as a service that enables customers to protect websites and increase their performance, improve end-user experiences and safeguard web applications and their data from attack. Incapsula has robust WAF capabilities that can thwart web attacks, DDoS mitigation to ensure access to online business assets, a content delivery network to optimize and accelerate web traffic, and a load balancer to maximize the potential of web environments.
