Database Security Tools
Database Security Tools Overview
What are Database Security Tools?In theory, databases are already protected against malicious activity by firewalls and intrusion detection systems. However, databases require their own protection as networks have been opened up to the Internet.
In broad terms, unauthorized access to a database compromises potential loss of data confidentiality, integrity and availability. Since corporate databases frequently contain valuable client data and other sensitive information, protecting databases from malicious intent is often a high priority.
Some of the ways in which database security tools do this:
- Access control to prevent unauthorized access by implementing multifactor access and other data management controls
- Physical security of database and servers from theft and natural disasters
- Monitoring system for vulnerabilities and compiling a plan to mitigate them
