NEW YORK, October 5, 2009 Application Security, Inc., the leading provider of database security, risk and compliance (SRC) solutions, today introduced the DISA STIG (Defense Information Systems Agency " Security Technical Implementation Guide) Compliance Pack for DbProtect Analytics. The DISA STIG Compliance Pack is designed to provide organizations with a comprehensive, streamlined approach to database risk assessment through a process of continuous compliance with its market-leading DbProtect enterprise-class platform.

By supporting DoD Directive 8500.1, against which all IA and IA-enabled IT products incorporated into DoD information systems require compliance, the DISA STIG Compliance Pack helps DoD personnel and contractors cut down the time to compliance with multiple federal regulations.
