nFX Data One monitors databases and Web sites for application-layer attacks
A lot of vendors are moving into the data-protection arena, but netForensics has a good head start because of its product history in event correlation and incident detection. What's slightly unusual about the approach is monitoring both HTTP and SQL activity. While competitor Imperva is capable of doing similar monitoring with an additional SecureSphere Web Application Firewall supplementing its database security line, few other database-leakage vendors are taking this more holistic approach to detecting incidents. If netForensics gets it right, it could have a solid product on its hands. Jordan Wiens NWC Contributing Technology Editor
NetForensics this week launched a new enterprise database-monitoring product that can help IT protect Web and database applications from attack.
Working in conjunction with netForensics nFX Open Security Platform, the new nFX Data One provides security monitoring, including the ability to identify and remediate threats and gather data and audit trails for policy enforcement, comliance and security forensics, the vendor said.
