SAN DIEGO, Feb. 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Security On-Demand, a leading provider of advanced managed security services announces the availability of Database Threat Protection service, powered by the DB Networks Layer 7 database sensor. This service provides discovery of all databases in the network, including undocumented ones, and continuous monitoring of databases to identify malicious activity.
Database Threat Protection is part of ThreatWatch 2.0 and provides visibility into which applications and users are making connections to the databases. A baseline of normal activity is established for each customer. Alerts for anomalous activity are generated and triaged in Security On-Demand's 24 x 7 Security Operations Center.
"Databases can be a blind spot for businesses. Many organizations lack policies and procedures for creating or copying databases. The result is a sprawl of undocumented databases. You can't protect what you don't know about. With this service, we offer unprecedented insights into database activity, vastly improving the ability to identify insider and external threats," said Peter Bybee, CEO of Security On-Demand.
"DB Networks' machine learning, behavioral analysis, and anomaly detection technologies reduce the time it takes Security On-Demand to identify threats within their customers' database infrastructure," explained DB Networks' Chairman and CEO Brett Helm. "Our Layer 7 Database Sensor provides actionable insights to enable rapid and appropriate responses to emerging threat situations."
