Imperva purchased Skyfence in February 2014.

The deal, which should close during the first quarter of this year, will allow Forcepoint to integrate its web security and data loss prevention (DLP) technologies with Skyfence’s technology.

The integration also provides Forcepoint customers greater flexibility in deploying web security via on-premise, hybrid and cloud-based solutions, Forcepoint said.

Terms of the deal were not immediately available.
