Information security company Imperva Inc. has signed an agreement to acquire Virginia-based bot management company Distil Inc., Imperva announced Tuesday. The financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

Redwood City, California-headquartered Imperva was founded in Israel in 2002. The company develops and sells information security software for databases and web apps.
