    Hi Community,

    I thought it was about time we had a thread for members to introduce themselves.

    Maybe you'd like to tell us a little more about yourself, your role and the Imperva products you are using or interested in? What you hope to gain from Imperva COmmunity?

    ... and anything else you'd like to share really.

    Let us know below...

    I'll start...

    I'm Sarah, Imperva's Community Manager! (I know, I'm sure you see me here enough)
    I am learning from you all everyday and get really excited when our Imperva team have new features and tips to share in blogs / webinars. I'd love to see even more tips / best practices from our users. I'm also a BIG fan of our video hub! :-)

    I am beyond excited about my first trip to Italy next week (a little less excited about dealing with 2 kids in the heat, but only a little).

    I'm going to tap a couple of my fellow Imperva team mates to introduce themselves and some of their existing work on community.

    @Jaired Anderson @Ira Miga @Jim Burtoft - over to you :-)​​​​

    Hi Community, Hi Sarah, Hi IMPERVA

    It's nice to belong to IMPERVA Community.
    I have been working with IMPERVA's technology for over ten years.
    I did a lot of PoCs, PoVs, and product deployments of WAF, DAM, JSonar, RASP and CloudWAF/anti-DDoS with the rest of the modules.
    I know that TraffordIT was the first IMPERVA Partner who has achieved all technical statuses: Support Partner, Professional Services Partner, Professional Services Engineer, and Technical Support Engineer with the sales Platinium Partner status at the same time.
    It is a big honor because I can work worldwide as IMPERVA Professional Services Engineer and Technical Support Engineer implementing and supporting IMPERVA.
    I'm here because I love helping and sharing my knowledge and experience.

    You can call or write me if you need help during implementation or services.

    Private - I love sailing and canoeing.

    Hi Community, @Sarah Lamont(csp) and @Karol Gruszczynski,

    I'm Ira, Knowledge Engineer @Imperva.
    And also a big Community fan!
    I'm excited about sharing knowledge about Imperva products with Imperva customers, my colleagues from different companies passionate about Cyber Security and an​yone who is interested in learning more. I've been with Imperva for almost 6 years now, started as a Managed Services Engineer, but found out my real passion is learning and sharing what I've learned and since then I'm a Knowledge Engineer. Working at Imperva allows learning amazing things about the newest technologies that exist now on the market and also working with terrific and smart people.
    I'd love to see more people sharing their "tips and tricks" about Imperva products and how they are using the tools we are providing to the customers.
    On a personal note, I love running! Even ran a marathon once, but since my baby was born last year, I'm still struggling to get back on track.. 
    Hope to be back to my usual distances soon..

    See you on Community or in the park running with a stroller 🏃🏼‍♀️ 😀..

    Hiii Team,

    Hello, I am Chaz Culp, a Sr. Customer Success Manager within Imperva. In my 20+ years in the IT field, I have worked at many levels and organizations. To include both the government and the civilian sectors. What I like most about Imperva is the "family" environment and the teamwork from other Impervians. The whole team really really desires to help the customer succeed. Are we perfect, no we are not. Do we strive to be, I really feel we do with all my heart, that we do.

     Life is about 10% luck and 90% of how you respond to adversity. The Community page brings all this to the forefront. It allows us to connect to not only one another but to the customers as well. Additionally, it allows our customers to connect with their colleagues in the data security industry. It allows customers to share their success stories, planning, strategies, deployments, and positive results themself. If we talk positively about Imperva, it's assumed that is normal, however, when customers say positive things about us, that's the real writing on the wall I feel. Join me in congratulating The Community on its 3rd birthday and hoping for many more to come!

     I am adding my phone number in my signature and if there is a customer that needs help, please reach out to me directly. I will help you or direct you to someone that can. Thank you for being the best part of Imperva.

    Love this message @Chaz Culp and I totally agree on the family feel at Imperva. Our Community is another way in which we extend this feeling into our customer base :-)

    I'm excited for the year ahead!​
