Security for MySQL and Teradata databases

McAfee announced its new McAfee Database Activity Monitoring solution offering reliable, real-time protection for business-critical databases.

The solution enables organizations to achieve much greater security management efficiency through its incorporation into the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator centralized security management platform.

It automatically finds databases on a network, protects them with a set of preconfigured defenses, and helps businesses build a custom security policy for their environment. It protects data from all threats by monitoring activity locally on each database server and by alerting or terminating malicious behavior in real time, even when running in virtualized or cloud computing environments.

It’s key features are:

  • Complete visibility into databases vulnerabilities: total insight into the existence, data sensitivity and security posture of each and every database in the environment
  • Non-intrusive, real-time protection across all threat vectors: solution requires no changes to existing database and network architecture, as non-intrusive memory-based sensors offer reliable protection for databases from malicious or unauthorized activity across all threat vectors
  • Compliance without downtime: through McAfee virtual patching for databases, security updates can be made without the business disruption of taking critical applications offline
  • Detailed audit trail reports: audit trail reports are available to meet SOX, PCI, and other compliance audit requirements.
  • Comprehensive threat protection: Protects even unpatched databases against zero-day attacks by blocking attacks that exploit known vulnerabilities and terminating sessions that violate security policies.
  • The latest version of McAfee Database Activity Monitoring now supports MySQL and Teradata databases.
