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.
Whether they are working in your headquarters, a home office, or on the road, employees, partners, and vendors need to have confidential data at their fingertips to conduct business effectively. The likelihood of this data becoming exposed through unsecured transfers or lost devices is a frightening reality.

Organizations today are reevaluating their security strategies as they move their data and applications to the cloud.

Organizations have traditionally viewed vulnerability scanners as a tactical product, largely commoditized and only providing value around audit time. But with limited resources and a real need to reduce risk, organizations need the ability to pull in threat-related data, combine it with an understanding of what is vulnerable, and figure out what is at risk.
This report from Securosis outlines how yesterday's vulnerability scanners are evolving to meet this need, emerging as a much more strategic component of an organization's control set than in the past.
Learn how vulnerability scanners are evolving to provide real value beyond vulnerability reports for auditors - emerging as a strategic component helping organizations effectively lower risks.
