Through the introduction of DbProtect Active Analytics, AppSecInc narrows the communications gap between DBAs, IT security professionals and their business operations counterparts.
This helps organizations recognize the business impact of a database security program in order to take the appropriate actions to protect the business from malicious attacks, holistically in balance with all organizational needs, requirements and goals.
Role-based reporting ensures proper metrics are communicated in the appropriate context to all stakeholders ranging from DBAs to C-level executives, and the board of directors.
“We have listened to our customers to fully understand the ways in which they use our products and how we can continue to help them achieve compliance, vulnerability assessment and database monitoring goals,” states Josh Shaul, CTO, AppSecInc. “The interactive, easy-to-use dashboard and reporting system in DbProtect Active Analytics was designed to allow security pros and DBAs to access, visualize and present data to easily communicate with key decision makers within the organization.”
DbProtect Active Analytics examines data which can be filtered by any number of variables including department function or geographic location.
This advanced filtering allows organizations to quickly assess which areas of the organization are most susceptible to attacks and delivers the data needed to determine “who, what, when, where and how” vulnerabilities can be exploited. Businesses are able to determine their greatest exposure and respond to risk, ensuring that security and compliance objectives are met.
DbProtect Active Analytics provides a wide range of compliance reports, risk reports, inventory reports, policy reports, and user activity reports. Reports can be scheduled and automatically emailed to the appropriate personnel as required.
These reports can also be used for investigative and forensic purposes. Through such comprehensive features, DBAs and IT security professionals are provided with the granular level of detail they require without burdening management with irrelevant details for their roles.
“Using Active Analytics, executives can quickly ascertain where and how resources should be marshaled to most effectively reduce risk and implement compliance requirements around the database,” added Shaul. “And, you don’t have to do everything our reports find at once. Small, incremental security adjustments are a great way to strategically improve the overall security posture of an organization.”
