DB Networks has released a first-of-its-kind database sensor that provides makers of security software with real-time, deep-protocol analysis of database traffic—inside or outside the firewall.
It’s probably not possible to gather too much network information when guarding against cyber-threats. So the more data a system can generate about legitimate users, the ones trying to break in and others who already have broken in, the better security staff will know how to fight the bad actors.
By integrating this sensor into their products, security OEMs provide their customers with more usage detail and metrics from data-tier cyber-threats. The Layer 7 Database Sensor—the first of its kind in the industry, DB Networks claims—features patented technology to enhance and differentiate their product offerings. In turn, enterprise users can deploy these new features, offered through their trusted channel or OEM vendors, to protect their critical database infrastructure.
