Database Security and Compliance

Are your auditors driving you insane?

28 Jan 2014

Every year at audit time, CIOs and IT managers are faced with the headaches created by the need to report accurately on the year’s database environment activity, particularly with regards to security and compliance.

Ascent Technology has the expertise and the tools needed to address these specific pain points, and to give your auditors what they require.

By combining our extensive experience – gained over years of implementing, customising and maintaining solutions to solve these exact challenges – with technologies that can automate the reporting process, we enable clients to obtain the database environment activity reports they require on a daily, monthly and yearly basis.

How Ascent Can Assist

Ascent Technology supports the McAfee Data Center Security Suite for Databases, the industry leading Database Security and Compliance offering from Intel Security.

McAfee Database Activity Monitoring automatically finds databases on your network, protects them with a set of preconfigured defenses, and helps you build a custom security policy for your environment – making it easier to demonstrate compliance to auditors and improve critical asset data protection. Database Activity Monitoring cost-effectively protects your data from all threats by monitoring activity locally on each database server and by alerting or terminating malicious behavior in real time, even when running in virtualized or cloud computing environments.
