AppSecInc's Suite Supports Oracle 11g

SAN FRANCISCO -- Application Security, Inc., the leading provider of database security solutions for the enterprise, today announced that its comprehensive database security suite DbProtect™ will support Oracle® Database 11g, now that 11g is generally available on the Microsoft Windows platform. Combined with the innovative capabilities inherent in Oracle’s 11g release, DbProtect extends the security of, and control over, an organization’s most valued asset – its data.

With this release, DbProtect will accurately discover 11g instances and test their configuration to ensure secure settings upon deployment and beyond. As a result, organizations can include Oracle 11g instances in their broader database security assessments ensuring that as they are deployed they comply with the organization’s broader security and compliance standards. DbProtect’s Oracle 11g support is based upon the work of Application Security, Inc.’s Team SHATTER (Security Heuristics of Application Testing Technology for Enterprise Research), which has been beta-testing Oracle 11g since its beta release.

“The number one thing organizations can do to guarantee a secure and compliant Oracle 11g deployment is to ensure that new instances are deployed with the appropriate settings,” said Ted Julian, Vice President, Marketing and Strategy, Application Security, Inc. “But linking 11g deployments in this respect with the hundreds or even thousands of other databases at a typical enterprise can be frighteningly complex for even the most sophisticated organization. DbProtect makes it easy for enterprises to maintain a consistent security and compliance posture across their database infrastructure despite new platforms, applications, updates, and other changes.”
