The industry’s first agentless database activity monitoring (DAM) solution based on artificial intelligence has arrived.
DB Networks is combining its DBN-6300 database monitoring and security technology with the CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution to strengthen organizations’ overall security posture with a next-generation DAM solution.
Now, DAM customers can achieve compliance monitoring and database security without operational impact — no agent software need to be installed or maintained on the database servers and monitoring is now done non-intrusively. Further, machine learning is utilized to automatically identify and alert on any suspicious, unusual, or abnormal access to sensitive data or critical systems.
DAMs are often used as a compensating control for compliance. For example, DAMs support Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) compliance to improve the accuracy of financial reports, Payment Card Industry’s Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) for monitoring access to credit card-related information, and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) requirements for monitoring access to sensitive healthcare records. However, third-party DAM agents’ integration with Database Management Systems have long been an issue. When the DAM agent fails, the entire database can be brought off-line for an extended period of time.
Privileged account management, especially for databases, is critical for security and is also a well-established compliance requirement. The CyberArk Privileged Account Security Solution establishes a single point of control for privileged sessions and creates an indexed, tamper-resistant record of privileged sessions.
With these capabilities, organizations can easily isolate, monitor, record and control privileged sessions on critical systems and databases, allowing security teams to immediately terminate suspicious privileged sessions and view full video playback of specific user sessions.
The agentless DAM’s deep protocol analysis of all Structured Query Language (SQL) activity is accomplished through DB Networks’ DBN-6300 technology. This technology also provides machine learning together with behavioral analysis to immediately and accurately alert on database policy violations and database attacks. This helps ensure sensitive data stores are not tampered with.
The agentless DAM supports Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and Sybase database management systems. The agentless DAM operates non-intrusively and can even be deployed in conjunction with other vendor DAMs to provide an unprecedented level of database security.
DB Networks also has become a new member of the C3 Alliance, CyberArk’s global technology partner program that brings together enterprise software, IT security and service providers to build on the power of privileged account security to better protect customers from cyber threats.
