Software vendor, Embarcadero Technologies, is hunting security service providers for its DSAuditor software. It tracks all database activity and provides real-time notification of suspicious behaviour.
Regional director, Philip Ball, said the vendor was changing its approach to the security market and would like to engage partners that can carry out project and implementation work.
This included security service providers, service integrators and consultancy firms.
"We are looking for partners that can deliver the necessary services with a product like ours," he said.
"It's a bit of a shift for us in terms of product and approach to the market.
"Most of our products can be downloaded from the Internet but DSAuditor deals with a much more important issue. If the implementation is not configured correctly it doesn't deliver what it should."
The vendor is currently talking to potential partners. Ball said they could use DSAuditor as part of a much broader security strategy.
"Security over the last few years has become a high growth area but data security is very often overlooked," he said. "We find that as we are moving more into data centre security we are attracting a different type of customer."
