Thoma Bravo completes $3.6bn sale of Imperva to Thales

Software-focused private investment firm Thoma Bravo has completed the sale of Imperva, a provider of application and data security solutions, to Thales, in an all-cash transaction that values the business at approximately $3.6bn.

Imperva is a cybersecurity leader that helps organisations protect critical applications, APIs and data anywhere, at scale and with the highest ROI. Its Web Application Firewall (WAF) prevents attacks by analysing web traffic to applications and its Data Security platform helps enhance the visibility of a company’s data to prevent breaches and avoid compliance issues.

During Thoma Bravo’s four years of ownership, Imperva enhanced its product offerings and experienced demonstrable growth through innovation, process optimisation and the successful execution of three strategic acquisitions.

Kirkland & Ellis LLP served as legal advisor to Thoma Bravo.
