Sentrigo Adds DB2, MySQL Support To Vuln Assessment And Security Scanner

Version 3.5 extends vulnerability scanning to additional database environments

SANTA CLARA, Calif.—June 29, 2010—Sentrigo, Inc. the innovator in database security software, today announced that its leading database vulnerability assessment and security scanning software solution, Repscan, has extended support to include IBM DB2 and MySQL environments. Version 3.5 also includes several new features that allow for faster and more efficient protection of sensitive data.

The Repscan vulnerability assessment and security scanning solution now supports all of the most widely deployed DMBS platforms including Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2 and MySQL databases. Repscan’s automated testing for more than 3,000 potential vulnerabilities is the most comprehensive vulnerability assessment solution currently available. Reports from Repscan help demonstrate compliance for audit purposes, and improve security overall for an enterprise’s most valuable data.

In addition to its broad database support, Repscan now features a quick vulnerability check based on a port scan, which works with all supported databases to provide an initial view of potential threats immediately, until a more detailed and time-intensive scan can be completed. Running on any of Repscan’s supported platforms, customers also have access to penetration testing tools, forensic trace analysis, and a powerful database browser which allows security staff without specific database knowledge to test and evaluate database security.

“By adding support for DB2 and MySQL, Repscan allows organizations with any of the most widely-deployed database environments to gain a detailed view of their current security posture,” said Dan Sarel, vice president of products at Sentrigo. “Combined with a rich set of new and existing features that allow for superior ease-of-use and ongoing management, Repscan is the clear choice for organizations seeking a comprehensive vulnerability assessment solution. The more advanced features go well beyond traditional vulnerability management or assessment tools, providing PCI QSAs and ASVs, as well as other auditors and security consultants, with a comprehensive tool for conducting their tests.”

Repscan is able to detect database modifications, neglected patches, insecure system configurations, weak and default passwords, as well as exploitable PL/SQL code and forensic traces. Beyond simply listing vulnerabilities, the system organizes items by priority, and provides actionable recommendations for remediation based on input from leading security researchers.

The product complements and integrates with Sentrigo’s Hedgehog Enterprise database activity monitoring and compliance software—the industry’s leading software solution for auditing and protecting corporate databases from privileged insiders as well as malicious hackers. Vulnerabilities discovered by Repscan can automatically generate protection rules and policies within Hedgehog Enterprise, preventing the exploit of identified weaknesses.
