Westwing Home & Living boosts web security

Written by Chris Lemmon

International pure-play retailer Westwing Home & Living has deployed a new online security solution from Imperva to protect its e-commerce websites in 14 different markets worldwide. Westwing is now using the Imperva Incapsula Web Application Firewall (WAF) service to protect the data of more than 26 million members.

Westwing has switched to the new solution from its previous DDoS mitigation and CDN providers. The retailer has seamlessly continued its global operations, with all of its websites now being routed through the Imperva Incapsula cloud.

Usama Dar, CTO of Westwing, noted: “The Imperva Incapsula WAF has given us insights into how people are trying to access our websites and exposes vulnerable areas such as those prime for cross-site scripting attacks. This means we are able to respond to threats and patch these vulnerabilities very quickly.”

Meg Bear, senior vice president of cloud services at Imperva, added: “Imperva Incapsula WAF is ideal for e-commerce websites that handle a lot of traffic because it is fast to implement, cost-effective and offers comprehensive website protection – all while reducing latency. For online businesses experiencing international growth, the Imperva cloud service is scalable to meet these demands.”

Westwing has 3.6 million monthly active members and had total revenue of €219 million last year.
