12:26 EDTIMPV, FEYE, SYMC, BRCD, CHKPIT security names climb after Imperva revenue beats expectations
A number of IT security stocks are rising after one of the companies in the sector, Imperva (IMPV), reported higher than expected fourth quarter revenue. WHAT'S NEW: Imperva, which provides data security products, reported fourth quarter revenue of $42.7 million, versus analysts' consensus estimate of $41.61M. The company's earnings per share, however, came in at 6c, versus the consensus estimate of 11c. Imperva noted that it had continued to accelerate its investments in sales and marketing support, as well as product development infrastructure during the quarter, in order to take advantage of global demand for its products. Imperva said that it had added 237 new customers last quarter, up from 199 during the same period a year earlier. "Customer demand remains solid across all geographies, and our overall bookings growth once again outpaced revenue growth as our investment in sales and marketing infrastructure continues to pay off," said Imperva CEO Shlomo Kramer. Imperva's fiscal 2014 revenue guidance came in above expectations, but its EPS outlook was well below the consensus outlook. The company said that its forecast for a significant fiscal 2014 operating loss reflects expenses from recent acquisitions, as well as ongoing investments in R&D, sales and marketing. PRICE ACTION: In late morning trading, Imperva surged 7.9% to $59.65. Other IT security companies also advanced, with FireEye (FEYE) rising 6.3% to $70.50, Symantec (SYMC) gaining 1.5% to $20.80, Barracuda (BRCD) gaining 2% to $31.20, and Check Point (CHKP) adding 0.7% to $64.70.

10:41 EDTFEYECommunity Health discloses personal data compromised in cyber attack
Earlier today, Community Health (CYH) disclosed in a filing that in July Community Health Systems confirmed that its computer network was the target of an external, criminal cyber attack that the company believes occurred in April and June. The company and its forensic expert, Mandiant, a FireEye company (FEYE), believe the attacker was an “Advanced Persistent Threat” group originating from China who used highly sophisticated malware and technology to attack the company’s systems.The company has been informed by federal authorities and Mandiant that this intruder has typically sought valuable intellectual property, such as medical device and equipment development data. However, in this instance the data transferred was non-medical patient identification data related to the company’s physician practice operations and affected approximately 4.5M individuals who, in the last five years, were referred for or received services from physicians affiliated with the company. The company has confirmed that this data did not include patient credit card, medical or clinical information; the data is, however, considered protected under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act because it includes patient names, addresses, birthdates, telephone numbers and social security numbers. The company does not believe this incident will have a material adverse effect on its business or financial results.
