Information has become the currency of today's world and database security is of the utmost importance when it comes to safeguarding this wealth from theft and data loss. RDB Consulting has stepped up to this need, incorporating Oracle's suite of database security solutions into its database outsource service. RDB Consulting will also monitor and maintain these security solutions for its clients.
"Database security is an area that has been neglected both internationally and within the South African market. One only has to look at the Wikileaks scandal to see just how vulnerable the database can be. It is vital to have the right checks and balances in place to secure the database, because unscrupulous people will always exploit any vulnerability for their own gain," says Jaroslav Cerny, CEO at RDB Consulting."
Oracle's Database Security suite delivers a portfolio of security solutions, combining tools such as: database activity monitoring and blocking; privileged user and multifactor access control; data classification; transparent data encryption; consolidated auditing and reporting; secure configuration management; and data masking, to ensure data privacy, protect against insider threats, and enable regulatory compliance.
Oracle Identity Management allows enterprises to manage the end-to-end lifecycle of user identities across all enterprise resources both within and beyond the firewall, enabling organisations to deploy applications faster, apply the most granular protection to enterprise resources, automatically eliminate latent access privileges, and much more. Together, these offerings coupled with RDB Consulting's services will provide a multifaceted, full featured database security offering ongoing maintenance and support.
RDB Consulting will incorporate this new offering through a twofold approach of both consulting services and software licensing. The consulting phase will involve investigations and a health check on existing database security as well as a comprehensive report, which will recommend the ideal products to address vulnerabilities identified during the process.
"This extension of our business opens up avenues to new markets, but is a natural fit, since we are already database specialists and can ensure that security solutions are correctly configured. We are now able to offer a more comprehensive end-to-end offering that includes security, adhering to Oracle Best Practice across the board and delivering ITIL and ISO 20000 compliance in a service that includes maintenance, consulting, on-going support, annual checks and analysis across all aspects of the database," Cerny concludes.
