Database Security Solutions
The Problem with Database Security
Data is the primary target In virtually every breach scenario – and databases are the primary storage for business applications. Protecting these systems gets harder every day. While there are many challenges Database Administrators face in the management and security of their various database flavors and instances, there are some common denominators that ultimately make managing data access so problematic.
Access rights are already massively overprovisioned, and when mixed with a high degree of management complexity and a plethora of hidden and unknown risks, it’s no wonder why data stores like file shares and databases are so difficult to control and susceptible to attack. As if security concerns weren’t enough, stringent compliance requirements demand something be done to secure sensitive data of all types. But how do organizations approach a problem so big and complex?
Compliance and Privacy Requirements
Regardless of where data lives, compliance and privacy regulations demand proper controls and processes be put in place to ensure the security of the data subject to each standard. Without proper understanding of access rights, an audit trail of activities, or knowledge of where certain types of information exist, it’s difficult at best to achieve compliance with any regulation.
Every database vendor’s security model is different, which makes it difficult for even the most experienced DBAs to stay on top of across heterogenous database environments. Accounts may have been granted direct access at various levels of the database or might have access due to group memberships that are unmanaged or forgotten. Getting a clear picture of entitlements can be difficult and time consuming.
