The importance of database security is exemplified by a recent Ponemon Institute study, which found that data breaches cost companies an average of $202 per exposed record in 2008. As businesses increasingly monitor employees and privileged users, integrating database activity monitoring solutions with security event monitoring and overall log management enables IT administrators to analyze database access in the broader context of what a user was doing before and after a suspicious activity and then determine what other transactions were invoked around suspicious database access.
"There are countless benefits to buying log management, database activity monitoring and security event management tools from the same vendor," said Dominique Levin, Executive Vice President of Marketing and Strategy at LogLogic. "LogLogic customers enjoy exceptional product integration and ease of use, and can now improve visibility and security by analyzing database activity in the context of all other user activity."
Until now, security and log management solutions, including LogLogic's, have relied on native database audit data or required integration with point solutions. Turning on native audit significantly slows down database performance, especially when monitoring detailed levels of application layer access and transactions. LogLogic's Database Security Manager now offers an attractive alternative that is based on cutting-edge host-based sensor technology and a plug-and-play appliance, which allow for deeper monitoring and real-time blocking without significant impact on database performance. In addition, LogLogic will continue to provide alerting and reporting for native database audit logs, as well as continue to support integration with point solutions.
"Database activity monitoring and log management are very closely related. It is very common to hear from customers that database activity monitoring is in scope for a log management project," said Levin. "LogLogic is applying its expertise in delivering powerful and easy-to-deploy monitoring solutions to the database market for the best possible outcome " real-time data protection with minimal performance impact and enterprise-wide user monitoring."
