Multiple solutions are available on the market to defend against such attacks, as well as to provide threat detection, activity monitoring, privacy protection, compliance and other aspects of data protection. Combining those individual building blocks into a comprehensive, layered and integrated security architecture is not an easy task. Many companies, especially small and medium businesses, simply have neither resources nor skills to design and deploy a complex suite of security products for protecting their databases from multiple threats across multiple environments.
Moving databases to the cloud introduces additional challenges, since organizations no longer have complete control over the database infrastructures and their underlying operating systems, while still retaining full responsibility for protecting their data. Embracing modern data storage technologies like NoSQL for flexible and scalable data processing and Big Data for real-time analysis of huge data sets increases the number of potential security risks even further. Thus, disconnected point solutions even combined with generic security tools like firewalls or antiviruses no longer constitute a viable approach towards database security. Only fully integrated and, for lack of a better word, “holistic” database security products can efficiently protect a company’s most valuable intellectual property. Recently, KuppingerCole has published a Leadership Compass on Database Security that analyzed and compared database security solutions from leading vendors according to a broad range of criteria and identified the leaders in product maturity, market presence and innovativeness.
In this webinar, we will talk about:
- Wide range of security risks databases are subjected to in a modern connected enterprise
- Challenges organizations face as they move databases to cloud environments
- Combining security technologies into an integrated multilayered database security architecture
- Key functional areas of database security solutions used for rating vendors
In the first part of the webinar, Alexei Balaganski, Lead Analyst at KuppingerCole, will talk about addressing the security challenges for databases in the age of Digital Transformation and will present the results of KuppingerCole’s Leadership Compass on Database Security.
In the second part, Desiree Amirgholi, Offering Manager, IBM Data Security, will present an overview of IBM Security Guardium, he company’s data security solution and will talk about security best practices to make the journey to the cloud as safe as possible.
Cybercriminals are growing in number and sophistication, rendering traditional solutions powerless against today’s advanced threats. IBM Security, with close to 8,000 security professionals worldwide, helps more than 10,000 clients address their most critical needs: transforming their security programs; optimizing operations and response systems; and protecting critical information.
During the past decade, IBM has invested more than $2 billion on security research and development, resulting in 3,700+ security-related patents, and acquired 19 security companies to build out its portfolio. Today, IBM Security delivers next-generation security technology and services, including Watson for Cyber Security, a cloud-based version of IBM cognitive technology trained on the language of security.
As more and more consumers, businesses, public sector companies and even whole countries are embracing the Digital Transformation, smart devices of all types are proliferating in all areas of our daily lives. It is safe to say, however, that, after the initial rush of making every device in the world smart and connected, the Internet of Things has already passed the peak of inflated expectations, with both vendors and users of the technology finally starting to care more about such things as interoperability and security.
