Trustwave DbProtect Overview

What is Trustwave DbProtect?

Trustwave DbProtect is a security platform designed for consistent monitoring and management of enterprise databases within the data center.

Built on a centrally managed and distributed architecture, DbProtect uncovers database weaknesses. This includes configuration mistakes, identification and access control issues, missing patches, or any toxic combination of settings that could lead to escalation of privileges attacks, data leakage, denial-of-service (DoS), or unauthorized modification of data held within data stores – both relational databases and big data stores.

Trustwave DbProtect is also known as Application Security DbProtect.

What other advice do I have?

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…
