The Department of Homeland security (DHS) has expanded its Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) Tools Blanket Purchase Agreement (BPA) with the inclusion of Imperva’s Web application and database firewalls.

“This selection is a testament to the depth of our experience spanning thousands of installations across civilian and defense agencies, and global enterprises,” said Mike Mooney, chief revenue officer at Imperva. “We will use the CDM program to make it even easier to apply our proven solutions and expertise to protect the mission-specific critical data and applications of Federal agencies.”

The CDM program provides government agencies with the tools to identify, prioritize, and mitigate cybersecurity risks, and is run by DHS. The BPA is intended to provide cost savings to Federal, state, local, and tribal governments.

“Congress established the CDM program to provide adequate, risk-based, and cost-effective cybersecurity and more efficiently allocate cybersecurity resources,” the DHS description of the program said.

Imperva is one of fewer than 20 vendors of CDM’s Phase 3: Boundary Protection and Event Management for Managing the Security Life Cycle. This phase allows for planning for and responding to events, generic audit and monitoring, quality and risk management, and boundary protection.

“The Federal market is extremely important to us, and we are pleased to be included in the CDM program to help government agencies transform the way they protect our nation’s data and applications,” said Bill Goodson, area vice president of Federal government at Imperva.
