Boston Meridian Advises jSonar on its Acquisition by Imperva

Boston Meridian is pleased to announce the acquisition of jSonar by Imperva (Thoma Bravo). jSonar quickly secures data stores no matter what kind (structured or unstructured) or where they live (cloud or on-premise) and provides a layer for estate-wide analytics and control. This dramatically simplifies the process of establishing policies for security, compliance and privacy.

The acquisition will pioneer a bold new approach to securing data through all paths, including on-premises, cloud, multi-cloud and Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS), delivering an integrated approach across data and applications. “This combination of two uniquely qualified trailblazers will signal a new approach to data security that puts an emphasis on usability and value with sustained and complete coverage for three initiatives organizations need to implement – security, compliance and privacy,” said Imperva Chief Executive, Pam Murphy.

As part of the deal, jSonar founder Ron Bennatan will join Imperva to lead its new data security division. “We’re excited to join forces with Imperva and accelerate our mission to modernize data security,” said Bennatan. The combination of jSonar and Imperva will form a large development organization dedicated to advancing data security, with many of jSonar’s capabilities being leveraged throughout the Imperva solution stack.
