Guardium, the database security company, today announced the first database monitoring and security solution that provides granular visibility into all changes to database objects including database structures, permissions, data, and configuration files without relying on database-resident functions such as trace and transaction logs or native auditing.
Most organizations have formal change control policies and processes that govern how and when changes are made to production databases. Until now, however, there were no effective and tamper-proof solutions for detecting when critical changes were made outside of these policies and processes.
The new Guardium offering, called Change Control Solution for Databases, enhances the security, integrity, and availability of critical data and systems by alerting security and IT managers on all unauthorized changes by trusted insiders and external hackers.
