Beyond Database Security: Adaptive, Policy-Based Access Control for Dynamic Data Filtering and Data Masking
- LANGUAGE: English DATE: Tuesday, June 23, 2015 TIME: 4:00pm CEST, 10:00am EDT, 7:00am PDT
Controlling access to databases can be anything between complex, performance-breaking and not fine-grained enough. In this webinar we will explore new approaches to this challenge and how they tackle frequent performance and security issues.
The more Information is available to and shared with those who are authorized to access it, the more business value it can create. Reducing barriers to information access therefore offers an immediate business effect, as more information can be made available to more users. However when it comes to information residing in databases, it can be hard to follow this simple business value equation. SQL queries most of the time deliver much more data than the requesting party actually would need, with filtering rules then being inflexibly and often insecurely hard-coded into a performance nightmare.
Where traditional Database security, which is focused on the database and not its contents, doesn´t bring us any further, adaptive and policy based access is proposing a significant step forward in the way how we can share database content to authorized users.
This webinar will describe in detail
- How to optimize business value by secure information sharing
- How to reduce business access barriers
- How to implement dynamic filtering and data masking rules to deliver only the content the requesting party really needs
- How to deliver adaptive and policy based access
- How to share database content to authorized users
In this webinar, KuppingerCole´s Pricipal Analyst Martin Kuppinger will introduce you to the new thinking of data centric security based on ABAC (Attribute Based Access Control), its benefits, challenges and limitations. After Martin´s overview, Dr. Srijith Nair, Product Manager at Axiomatics will lead you through a number of use cases and offer a special focus on performance questions

In the era when data has replaced oil as the most valuable commodity, APIs have become an important logistical foundation of modern digital business. As a result, APIs have also become a popular target for cyber attackers, and therefore effective API security is essential. However, focusing only on the operational aspects is no longer enough.
