Imperva Acquires SkyFence for $60 Million

Security firm Imperva is acquiring a pair of companies it is very familiar with: Incapsula and Skyfence.

Incapsula is a cloud-based security platform spun off from Imperva, and Skyfence, which recently emerged from stealth mode with a behavior-based cloud application security offering, was founded by former Imperva employees.

Imperva is paying approximately $60 million for Skyfence, Mark Kraynak, Imperva's senior vice president of worldwide marketing, told eWEEK. Imperva already owned approximately 80 percent of Incapsula and is now moving to buy the remaining share.
