(businesspress24) - REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/19/15 -- (NYSE: IMPV), committed to protecting business-critical data and applications in the cloud and on-premises, today announced Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) support for the entire Imperva Incapsula network to ease migration and compliance needs of its customers. The Incapsula network will continue to support IPv4, providing customers with seamless translation between the two Internet protocol versions.

Today, the Internet supports billions of devices. With only a 32-bit address field, IPv4 is limited, and it has become necessary to expand. IPv6 enables the proliferation of mobile devices and the Internet of Things with a larger supply of much longer addresses.

Upgrading an entire application architecture from IPv4 to IPv6 is time consuming and expensive. With IPv6 support, customers can easily transition their applications from IPv4 to IPv6 by simply routing traffic through the Incapsula network. This provides a cost-effective way to achieve IPv6 compliance. Further, by maintaining support for both versions, the Incapsula network can support any combination of IPv4 and IPv6, achieving forward and backward compatibility.

"With the end of IPv4 capacity in sight, we made the decision to roll out support for IPv6 across our entire worldwide network," said Eldad Chai, vice president of product for the Imperva Incapsula product line. "By supporting both versions, our customers can be IPv6 compliant without the need to make major changes to their own network or applications."

Incapsula is a cloud-based application delivery service that makes websites safer, faster, and more reliable. Using Incapsula, organizations large and small can protect their businesses with enterprise-grade web application security, DDoS mitigation, performance optimization and load balancing.

IPv6 support is available immediately to all Incapsula users. For more information visit .
