Database Security

Databases are at the heart of almost every organization’s computer system and are also the site of many serious security breaches. Databases are where organization store their most confidential information – from students, corporate financial data and employee records to credit card numbers, and medical information etc.

Most businesses place a high value on network security and other security measures, database security often is neglected. As a result, databases are particularly vulnerable to fraudulent activity, which can damage companies reputations and can destroy customer confidence. Many companies know they need stronger protections, but they may lack the budget to employ full-time database security personnel.

Problem

Attackers can exploit vulnerabilities in unprotected databases to create malicious files and libraries, to access database administrator-level privileges, to obtain sensitive data, and to cause disruptions in service. Most companies utilize databases heavily, but few have the specialized security knowledge necessary to effectively assess their security levels and prevent threats from materializing.

Traditional security solutions, such as perimeter and intrusion-detection systems (IDS), are insufficient, as they show attacks only after they have occurred.
