DB Networks Works in Conjunction with Database Activity Monitors

SAN DIEGO, Sept. 25, 2015 — Databases store organizations’ most sensitive and mission critical information. As such, databases have always been prime targets for advanced cyber attacks.
According to a recent Verizon Business’ Data Breach Investigations Report, 75 percent of all breached records originated from compromised database servers.
Proper databaseprotection requires layered protection to prevent the breach of intellectual property, sensitive customer information, and state secrets.

DB Networks offers continuous and deep visibility into the database infrastructure to complement the functions of Database Activity Monitors (DAM). DAMs provide privileged user and client access monitoring to detect unusual database read and update activity.

DAMs address regulatory compliance mandates such as those defined in the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). DAMs were not designed to provide visibility across an organization’s entire database infrastructure. To ensure SOX compliance, organizations should start with an assessment of their database infrastructure including a comprehensive inventory of database instances across all database servers and which client applications their databases are connected to.

DB Networks complements DAMs through offering insights into an organization’s overall database infrastructure, including the number and type of databases that are operational, what clients are communicating with which databases, when database communications cross trust boundaries, and when databases are under attack from rouge SQL.

“DB Networks’ machine learning, behavioral analysis, and anomaly detection technology significantly reduce the time necessary to accurately identify threats within the database infrastructure,” explained DB Networks’ Chairman and CEO Brett Helm.

“Our concrete actionable intelligence enables organizations to now rapidly respond to a situation with the proper and targeted response. DB Networks’ products work synergistically with DAMs to provide unprecedented insights for the customer.”

DB Networks’ technology operates non-intrusively through a network TAP or SPAN port connection. DB Networks offers database infrastructure insights and database securitycapabilities without interfering with any other security measures a customer may have in place, including DAMs.

DB Networks deep protocol extraction identifies critical indicators of compromise (IOCs) in real-time. Organizations can now discover, visualize, and derive meaningful insights into their database infrastructure.

This enables a proactive approach to defending against unpredictable database cyber threats.
