SAN DIEGO, June 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- DB Networks recognizes that the combination of the long-term IT security labor shortages and an unprecedented number of security breaches are stretching IT security departments to the snapping point. Organizations are reeling from the effects of architecting their security measures too heavily on signature file based systems. Managing signature files has proven to be extremely labor intense and, even worse, signature files technology has now become porous to modern attack methods. As a result, new and innovative automated security solutions are required to effectively address escalating threats and to reduce support staff requirements.
The overall demand for IT security professionals is far outpacing the available supply. The situation is predicted to worsen over the next few years as the shortfall grows to one million unfilled positions. By 2020 the estimates are that the shortfall will reach a staggering one and half million unfilled positions.
"Today's IT security labor crisis reminds me of the stories I've read about operator shortages during the early days of the telephone – all calls in those days were switched manually. Clearly that approach couldn't scale," said Brett Helm, Chairman and CEO of DB Networks. "In IT security, signature files used to detect attacks are created and maintained manually, alarms are manually analyzed, and incidents are remediated manually. This present situation also doesn't scale and its not sustainable – intelligent automation of IT security is absolutely necessary."
DB Networks approach to database security is highly automated. DB Networks' DBN-6300 provides automated assessments of the database infrastructure as well as accurately identifying even the most sophisticated attacks in real-time with no security staff intervention.
DB Networks' DBN-6300 performs deep protocol analysis to non-intrusively discover all databases and then maps those databases to their connected applications. This provides security staff with insights that were previously unavailable. For example, private information such as credit card payment data might be seen transiting network segments where it shouldn't, unusual activity is identified, and hidden attack surfaces are revealed. In addition, the DBN-6300 uses machine learning and behavioral analysis of database communications to immediately and accurately identify database attacks.
The DBN-6300 significantly reduces security staff support requirements in a number of important ways. First, it's a turnkey security appliance that can be operational in under an hour. Second, it doesn't use signature files. So there's no black lists or white lists to continuously manage. Third, it's field proven to be extremely accurate identifying database attacks. Without false positives to chase down, security staff workloads are further reduced.
