Database Security Review - How it works
Pentest Limited offers a complete Database Security Assessment Service (DSAS) to businesses that rely on the security of the information held within their databases or have concerns relating to the security compliance of these databases.
The security efforts of many organisations are frequently focused on host based security measures often overlooking the security of the database. The information contained within these databases is not only critical from a confidentiality, integrity and availability perspective but is essential to the company's ability to operate as a going concern and requires specialist knowledge to identify the risks associated with a data breach. Recent years has seen a marked increase in the number of reported cases of data repositories being targeted or, in the worst case scenario, compromised. Contrary to popular belief it is not always the value of the compromised data that is the primary consideration indeed in many cases it has been the damage to the reputation of the company that has caused the greatest embarrassment and proven the most difficult to re-establish.
The DSAS service delivers a documented, comprehensive and in-depth analysis of the current security posture of existing relational databases. The report not only contains technical recommendations that can be action by database administrators but provides the primary audience of Security Managers, Auditors, Compliance Officers and members of the senior management team with sufficient information to make informed decisions that will improve the security of existing databases. In turn this will assist in ensuring that security budget is spent wisely and efficiently.
Any company seeking reassurance that their IT infrastructure is sufficiently secure must necessarily include the data at its core as part of the management of their on-going security strategy. The DSAS service will provide the necessary level of assurance or alternatively serve to highlight those areas within the database that are currently exposed to known security risks.
