By monitoring traffic to all their enterprise databases, organizations can now detect unauthorized activity before it reaches the database, and can take appropriate measures to block that activity. In addition, these solutions can consolidate database logs and analyze them in real-time to generate alerts as well as provide a secure centralized repository for audit data for regulatory purposes.
Conceptually similar to network intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS) or security information and event management (SIEM) that are part of every organization’s network, KuppingerCole believes adoption of this new technology will become just as widespread at the database layer and will help strengthen existing controls within database management systems. You will also hear from database leader, Oracle, about their new Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall solution and some of the organizations that have already adopted this solution as part of a database security defense in depth strategy.
In this webinar, Martin Kuppinger will outline how Database Security solutions fit into the approach of Database Governance, which role encryption technologies play therein, and what it needs for a holistic approach on Database Security – including the layers surrounding the databases like the applications, the operating system, and the network.
In the second part, Roxana Bradescu of Oracle will talk more in detail about the new Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall.
