Jan 25 — Imperva Inc., a provider of application data security and compliance, announced Wednesday that it has joined the RSA Secured Partner Program, and Imperva SecureSphere has achieved certified interoperability with RSA Access Manager software from RSA Security Inc., the security division of EMC Corp. This partnership is designed to enable joint customers to deploy a layered web security infrastructure that provides interoperable application protection with user access control.
The technical interoperability between SecureSphere and RSA Access Manager is designed to enable IT security teams to access user login credentials from RSA Access Manager following security violation alerts issued by SecureSphere. This capability provides an identity-based tracing mechanism for linking users and the actions they perform using web applications. Tracing users and their actions is a requirement for audit and compliance, but is difficult to achieve with Web applications since they typically pool connections to back-end databases which obscures login credentials.
