Secure.Data is also the only product that supports all major databases on the NT, Unix and mainframe platforms including IBM, Sybase, Oracle and Microsoft.
Protegrity's customers include the largest and most well respected Fortune 1000 companies in the financial, healthcare and consumer goods industries.
What qualities do you think are essential to be successful in the database security market?
The product needs to:
- protect and audit sensitive information stored on all the major relational databases (IBM, Sybase, Oracle and Microsoft).
- an "out-of-the-box" application transparent solution that can be implemented in days, not months. The real cost is not simply the cost of the product, it is the total cost of the implementation.
- strong role-based access control to facilitate granular access control to sensitive data that allows for sharing of information with business partners, customers, and other internal and external users, without the risk of breach of critical information assets.
- centralized application of privacy rules.
- secure audit trail.
Both are enormous threats to a company. The vast majority of the larger security breaches have occurred as a result of internal personnel however both are threats that can and need to be stopped at the source of the breach - the database.
What are your plans for the future?
On the business side, Protegrity's relationships with IBM, Sybase, Oracle, Microsoft, nCipher, RSA and other strategic partners will continue to expand. Protegrity offers the strongest and most comprehensive database security solution.
We will continue to expand our relationships with key enterprise software applications such as PeopleSoft, SAP and others.
Our product will continue to move forward addressing the new security risks. Protegrity's platform will be expanded to incorporate wireless initiatives and other types of information.
Protegrity will stay focused on ensuring that it remains at the top of the most central part of data and information security - at the source "data at rest" where data is most vulnerable.
