Database Security


Secure Databases. Protect Sensitive Data. Go Beyond Compliance.

Trustwave DbProtect proactively assesses threats to databases to help you gain visibility into the vulnerabilities in your on-premises or cloud databases that could lead to a data breach. It automates the security of critical data by uncovering vulnerabilities that would-be attackers could exploit, limiting user access to the most sensitive data and alerting on suspicious activities, intrusions and policy violations. As a result, you can spend less time chasing database security alerts and more time on activities that drive value, like remediating risks and reducing your attack surface.
