Importance of the Expansion

Imperva noted that the network expansion is driven by subscriber growth along with a change in DDoS attack type, size, and frequency. Research by the Company's security team has shown a change in DDoS attack patterns, with a significant increase in high packet rate attacks (DDoS assaults) where the packet forwarding rate escalated to approximately 50 million packets per second (pps). In Q3 2017, Imperva observed 197 high packet rate attacks among clients, more than half of which were greater than 100 million pps. Of these, 11 were more than 200 million pps with the largest hitting 238 million pps for more than 3.5 hours.

New PoPs, Increased Transit Capacity, and Peering

Imperva noted that it has expanded its Incapsula data center footprint with the addition of Points of Presence (PoPs) in Delhi, Dubai, Moscow, Mumbai, Taipei, and Vancouver. The Company has planned six more centers to be online by the end of 2017 in Bangkok, Istanbul, Jakarta, Johannesburg, Mexico City, and Seoul. Imperva stated that the addition of these new PoPs will speed up the internet experience for local users.

Imperva noted that its network bandwidth has been expanded to 4.7 terabits per second (Tbps) through a relationship with Level 3 Communications that adds an additional 1.8 Tbps across 20 strategically located data centers. An additional 2 Tbps of transit capacity is expected to be added by the end of 2017. Imperva has also expanded direct peering relationships including one with Comcast Corp.

New Scrubbing Technology

The Incapsula global network now includes the Behemoth 2, Imperva's second-generation DDoS mitigation device that provides DDoS scrubbing capability of 650 million pps and 440 gigabits per second per device. The Behemoth 2 devices are linked via the Incapsula mesh network to form a virtual DDoS scrubbing center which is capable of mitigating large-scale attacks. With the addition of the new PoPs and Behemoth 2, the Incapsula global network has a total DDoS packet scrubbing capacity of 65 billion pps.

The Company stated that the additional PoP locations, expanded capacity, and Behemoth 2 allow Incapsula to offer a new 10-second DDoS mitigation SLA.
