Secerno announced the availability of its award-winning Secerno.SQL database activity monitoring and blocking solution as a virtualised appliance on the Vmware platform. This marks the first availability of its appliance-based database protection in a virtualised environment, allowing enterprises the same database protection afforded by hardware yet with the utilisation, management and cost benefits of a virtualised application.
Secerno’s decision to add a virtualised database protection product, powered by its patent-pending SynoptiQ technology, is a response to increased customer demand and a growing trend by organisations to consider virtual environments as part of their infrastructure. Providing database security in a virtual environment gives organisations greater resource utilisation, faster deployment times and the flexibility to have capability and capacity on-demand. With this offering, organisations can choose to deploy Secerno hardware appliances or take the benefits of Vmware deployments without any impact to performance or manageability.
Secerno chose virtualisation-leader Vmware’s technology platform based on Vmware’s penetration into more than 20,000 corporate customers. Vmware will allow Secerno to offer full support for virtualised environments as well as roll-out protection through virtual appliances, enabling organisations to cost effectively protect a large number of databases. Enterprises will still have the full benefits of Secerno.SQL and will be able to deploy database protection quickly and manage all databases from a central point.
Secerno.SQL for Vmware is set to be available this quarter.
