Protegrity released the Defiance 4.2 Software Security suite, the industry’s first-ever integrated security platform to protect databases, files, & web applications in a single offering. Chief Security Officers and security managers can now focus on securing enterprise data holistically, not just from hardware appliances scattered through the IT infrastructure.
The integration of Defiance DPS data protection, Protegrity VPDisk file security, and Defiance TMS web application threat management, in this integrated suite release, delivers on Protegrity’s Data Security ManagementÃ¢â€ž? strategy of end-to-end protection. With Protegrity’s Defiance Enterprise Security Reporter, security administrators now have the proactive power to view and manage security events at all data protection points, throughout the data lifecycle. With compliance reports, active dashboards and detailed audit reporting, security officers can now demonstrate the efficacy of their security policies and reduce the number of days required with auditors to satisfy their assessment of the adequacy of internal controls; having all the information they need in one central interface.
Along with this unified control point for reporting and auditing on security events, Defiance 4.2 builds on Protegrity’s Intelligent EscalationÃ¢â€ž? functionality for enterprise-wide security response. Events detected by any 4.2 element — DPS, VPDisk or TMS — can trigger alerting and an intelligent threat management escalation at enforcement points, for true protection of sensitive data across the entire organization.
Defiance 4.2 also delivers expanded enterprise protection of, and support for, databases and applications on IBM iSeries (AS/400), and IBM z/OS DB/2 mainframe environments.
