Imperva Plans to Purchase Prevoty

Deal will bring DevOps security to the enterprise security vendor.

Imperva, a security firm with products for on-premises, cloud, and hybrid deployments, has announced an agreement to acquire Prevoty, a DevOps security vendor. The cash deal, valued at $140 million (subject to adjustments) is expected to close in the third quarter of fiscal 2018.

According to Imperva, Prevoty's autonomous application protection (AAP) products will combine with Imperva's application protection, application delivery, and data security products to allow for end-to-end security for organizations and their applications.

In addition, the Prevoty offerings for built-in application security are intended to increase Imperva's reach into the DevOps market. In a statement announcing the purchase agreement, Imperva noted that the combination of Prevoty products and Imperva insight products like ThreatRadar should provide greater visibility into threats and vulnerabilities across the enterprise.

The Race for Acquisition
I wonder if any company now will grow to a point where they decide to stand on their own instead of getting acquired? It seems that this is the genaral trajectory for security firms to be purchased by the industry giants after a certain amount of time.
