USMD has deployed AppDetectivePro's agentless database scanning technology for database discovery, vulnerability assessment, user access controls and compliance reporting

NEW YORK " September 22, 2009 " Application Security, Inc., the leading provider of database security, risk and compliance (SRC) solutions for the enterprise, today announced that the University System of Maryland (USMD) has standardized on AppDetectivePro.

"It was important for USMD to select a proven solution, and AppDetectivePro allows us to quickly and efficiently assess our database security, risk and compliance posture," said Lennox Brown, Asst. Director, IS Audits at USMD. "As a result of our deployment, we have significantly reduced our resource requirements and increased our audit efficiency. In addition to delivering best-in-class technology, Application Security, Inc. provides the highest level of customer support prior to, during and after deployment."
