Imperva Bought for $2.1 Billion

After nine years of working for Imperva, I couldn’t be happier or prouder that they’ve been bought by Thoma Bravo for $2.1 billion. 

It’s a little like having a baby and watching it grow up through childhood, go through the teen years and then leave home. We’ve been through so much together from finding their first client at Incapsula, to various acquisitions, an IPO and now the ultimate dream. It’s been a marriage made in heaven. and now we must say goodbye – leaving the whole Eskenzi team feeling a bit sad – but that’s just like being a proud parent – our job is done!


As is the Israeli way, Imperva have gone on to spawn so many other great companies over the years which we’ve been lucky to also be involved in. and we’ve also made so many wonderful friends too including the loveliest man of them all Amichai Shulman alongside Kim DeCarlis, Criss Marshall, Lisa Croel, Rob Rachwald, Tami Casey, Barry Shteiman, Marc Gaffan, Mark Kraynak,Morgan Saunders, Edgard Capdevielle Noa Bar-Yosef, Christine Royston, Diane Ashfield, Courtney Ostermann, Winifred Shum and Tim Matthews.

Good luck Imperva and Thoma Bravo on your journey together.
