Database Security is the system, processes, and procedures that protect a database from unintended activity. Unintended activity can be categorized as authorized misuse, malicious attacks or inadvertent mistakes made by authorized individuals or processes. Traditionally databases have been protected from external connections by firewalls or routers on the network perimeter with the database environment existing on the internal network.
Today, in the age of information, people are paid for their ideas: to create original knowledge products or add value to existing products. Given their self-reliance, it is not surprising that workers take pride in their outputs—up to half of employees take a portfolio of files with them when they leave.
When employees move on, many feel entitled to the work they’ve created.They presume it is acceptable to transfer work documents to personal computers, removable media, tablets, smartphones or online file sharing apps. Some pilfered data is innocuous and already in the public realm. But some of it is classified. Read this paper to find out how to collect and secure data to protect operations, reputation and continuity when employees leave.
Data loss, theft or breach is inevitable, but backup assures recovery, continuity and rapid response.
Endpoint data backup is at the core of an enterprise data security strategy. Modern endpoint backup goes well beyond backup and restore, delivering risk reduction across the enterprise and addressing perennial IT and business problems. Discover more by reading this whitepaper.
Over the years we’ve all heard claims of simple, seemingly magical solutions to solve security problems, including the use of sandboxing technology alone to fight advanced malware and targeted threats.

Most data center security emphasizes strong perimeter defense to keep threats on the outside. But this model is ineffective against today’s new types of threats, which may be borne by east-west traffic inside your data center. Some of these intrusions may lurk for days, weeks, or months to discover and exploit vulnerabilities. An existing concept called micro-segmentation is the solution. But until now, it was hardware-intensive and costly. In this solution overview, you’ll learn why micro-segmentation is now within your organization’s reach.
