GreenSQL, http://www.greensql.com, the database security company, minimizes database security breaches for organizations employing external database administrators, consultants or developers.
"Organizations have outsourced many IT functions to reduce costs," says Amir Sadeh, CEO, GreenSQL. "Unfortunately, that sometimes comes at the cost of security."
92% of stolen data comes from databases.* Many companies use external consultants, developers, and database administrators (DBAs) to manage their databases and develop their applications, without having specific controls to manage privileges and data access. These consultants are usually granted full or privileged database access rights to perform their tasks, such as performance management, monitoring, backup and replication and application development. This full access most often presents a high risk for many organizations who store sensitive records in their databases.
GreenSQL's integrated Database Security, Monitoring and Dynamic Data Masking functions are easy to use and quick to implement. More than 130,000 downloads of its product protect thousands of businesses around the globe by detecting and blocking SQL Injection attacks and unauthorized database access, enforcing separation of duties, monitoring database access and activity and hiding personally identifiable information (PII) by providing complete compliance with regulations such as SOX, HIPAA, and PCI DSS.
GreenSQL's real-time, Dynamic Data Masking allows remote data access from external sources while protecting data from unauthorized exposure by camouflaging sensitive information. GreenSQL's Database Activity Monitoring (DAM) allows management to see exactly what sensitive records their external consultants have been exposed to and when and what actions they took.
With GreenSQL's security solution, companies significantly reduce development and infrastructure costs because they no longer have to build their own database security solutions. GreenSQL's click-and-download technology is up and running very quickly, protecting data from unauthorized access and intellectual property theft.
"As much as we want to trust our employees and suppliers, our experience has unfortunately shown us otherwise," concludes Sadeh. "External DBAs, current DBAs or former employees may steal your data because they are greedy, vengeful, or just want to see if they can 'do it.' While it sounds trite, an ounce of prevention is worth millions of dollars and your reputation in cure."
GreenSQL provides the world's first set of Unified Database Security solutions for the SMB/SME and enterprise markets. With an all-in-one approach to database security, the GreenSQL product family offers database protection, monitoring and performance in a single integrated suite.
