Database Security Assessment
It is important to consider security of one's database when maintaining one's IT infrastructure. Database security assessment is an integral part of one's database security strategy and the design of this strategy must include - impact on product systems, accuracy, efficiency, and breadth of testing. This company talks about the free Scuba by Imperva database vulnerability assessment tool that is able to take care of all the above mentioned criteria. Not only that, the Scuba by Imperva database vulnerability assessment tool is able to meet budget and resource constraints, while meeting expertise barriers. Scuba is able to provide users with a more secure database infrastructure. This paper suggests deployment of a complete database security lifecycle solution and monitoring gateway products to ensure absolute database security. Because the database is the single-most important repository of information for an enterprise, it is a sensitive field and requires constant attention. As companies understand that database assets are vulnerable to external attackers and internal employees, it is important to undertake constant database security assessment. All records - customer databases, financial reports, and patient data are at risk. Database security assessment also helps with regulatory requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), and others. This paper explains the means of purposes of securing databases through best practice security assessment and suggests elements of a best practice database security assessment process.
