Trustwave DbProtect Other Advice

The market here is very limited for database protection. For the past five years, we have been pushing it as a "good to have" or "nice to have" solution. However, it is now becoming an essential requirement for protecting our customers' databases. Our customers have identified the need for database protection, but in our part of the world, it is not yet getting the attention, or budgets, that it requires. In the middle of threats and attacks on the network, people rarely look at the backend solution. They do not see the database as a "threatened" component. We are happy with the product overall, including its features and support. Unfortunately, our market here is not quite ready for it, but we are looking for it to pick up in the near future. Trustwave is not as visible in this region as IBM or other competing products, which is one of the issues that we have in selling the solution. At the same time, it is a good product and it is still a market leader. Overall, we don't see many problems. My advice for anybody interested in implementing this solution is to do a POC. It is easy and not risky. Since it is something that is installed on the database server itself, it may be necessary to use a test server. In our experience, however, it is generally safe and we haven't seen any issues with it. Overall, I'm happy with the product but it is not yet perfect. I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.
