Trusted Security Advisor at a tech services company with 501-1,000 employees
This solution is for database security and protecting the core of the data. It allows us to put in controls to make sure that only the right persons access the proper records in the database. It prevents unauthorized access. For example, a customer may want to restrict the database so that it is accessible only from within a specific application. This means that the database administrator will not be able to access the data from outside of the application, as is normally allowed by their administrative rights. It can prevent the administrator from seeing or modifying any data for which they are not allowed to do so. It is also possible to set specific permissions, such as restrictions on the field, table, or record level of the database. Only people with explicit permissions can view or modify the data.
