In a statement, Imperva CEO Pam Murphy says adding CloudVector will advance Imperva's API security portfolio as it is a complementary technology. CloudVector's platform aims to help businesses find and protect API traffic in their environments from malicious activity.

The transaction is subject to customary closing conditions and is expected to close in May 2021.

This is the second acquisition for Imperva in the last year. The company acquired jSonar in October 2020 in a move to bring jSonar's security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) platform and analytics to the Imperva application security stack.
