Databases are a prime target for attackers due to the amount of sensitive information they store such as customer information, intellectual property and proprietary secrets. Yet many businesses fall victim to database intrusions because of common flaws. Database Security solutions help businesses prevent database breaches with database activity monitoring (DAM) and vulnerability assessment. Along with DAM, they can perform blocking, locking and termination functions when malicious activity is detected. Assessment capabilities of Database Security solutions include identifying database vulnerabilities, configuration errors, rogue installations and access issues.
