This new database security appliance enables either 24x7 or scheduled monitoring, and makes it possible for organisations to comply with regulatory requirements around audit trails for data access – such as PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard). FortiDB database security appliances support a wide range of database environments including Oracle, DB2, Sybase and MS SQL Server. The FortiDB-400B is designed specifi cally for small to medium-sized businesses, and can monitor up to 10 database instances from a single appliance. It features vulnerability assessment, which allows a database to be “hardened” by detecting weaknesses in passwords, access privileges and confi guration settings. These tools then alert system administrators of potential threats, while also offering remediation advice. Automated, policy-driven control reduces database administrator (DBA) time by eliminating manual processes. Other features include Web-based centralised management, standardised reports, and automatic discovery of databases across the network and subnet boundaries.
