Tizor Systems announced Mantra 6 with updated features for data discovery, database security and ease of use. Mantra 6 features include automated discovery for finding databases and specific classes of sensitive data; session termination for blocking unauthorized or suspicious database activity; and drag and drop policy creation for the fastest and easiest implementation of data auditing for risk mitigation.
The product automates discovery tasks that previously took months and required a highly manual effort.Ã‚Â It quickly finds and classifies databases and the data within them to provide IT, security and compliance professionals with unprecedented visibility into the location of data assets, type of data assets in use, and potential risks to those assets.Ã‚Â
Mantra’s new discovery features are critical for companies that need to find credit card data for the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard compliance, account information for Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) compliance, or user information for personally identifiable or protected health information (PII/PHI) projects. The detailed information that Discovery provides can dramatically increase the effectiveness of an organization’s security and compliance programs.
Mantra 6 also adds session termination to allow companies to combine database monitoring and auditing with preventative controls for stopping unauthorized activity in real time. Mantra’s TAP, a lightweight, host-based agent for monitoring network and local database activity, has been enhanced to also prevent or block activity in real time.
Mantra 6 will be generally available on July 30, 2008.
