World-leading Cybersecurity Technology Provider Strengthens NZ Support


One of the world's leading cybersecurity technology firms, Imperva has joined forces with an Auckland company in a move that will give local businesses significantly improved support for and access to its web site and database cyber protection technologies.

NASDAQ-listed Imperva has been recognised as the only “Leader” in the internationally-recognised Gartner Magic quadrant for Web Application Firewalls in the last three consecutive years and has a growing number of high profile global and Asia-Pacific regional customers.

MPA is a New Zealand-owned IT distribution specialist that has been providing New Zealand businesses with cybersecurity technology solutions for more than 25 years.

The arrangement will see MPA distribute and support Imperva's Incapsula and Securesphere products in New Zealand.  Until now New Zealand customer support had been managed from Australia.

Steve Macmillan, MPA New Zealand's Managing Director, says government departments, local bodies, and local medium, large and corporate businesses will benefit from better access to and support for these unique products.

Imperva is renowned for its strong offering DDos (distributed denial of service attack) protection, application security and database security offerings, that include the Incapsula cloud-based website security and Securesphere data-protection technologies.

Imperva's Country Manager for Australia New Zealand Chris Wood says the partnership with MPA will benefit New Zealand businesses with more responsive, more cost-effective offering that is tailored to their needs.

 “The New Zealand market is important to Imperva, and this partnership with MPA will allow us to expand our footprint and strengthen our innovative cyber security solution offering to local businesses,” said Chris Wood, Imperva Country Manager for ANZ.

“Having MPA as a partner better enables us to meet New Zealand businesses' growing need to protect their business-critical data and applications within and outside of the cloud.”
