Guardium Unveils S-Gate

WALTHAM, Mass. -- Guardium, the database security company, today announced the first cross-DBMS solution that prevents privileged users such as DBAs, application developers and outsourced personnel – from viewing sensitive data in corporate databases.

Guardium S-GATE™ is the only technology that allows organizations to safeguard enterprise data and meet compliance requirements – such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), PCI-DSS and data privacy laws – without the cost and complexity of modifying databases, application code or existing business processes, and without relying on “after-the-fact” mechanisms such as logging and alerting.

S-GATE’s ability to enforce granular access control policies that apply only to privileged users means that organizations can now implement robust preventive controls – without the risk of blocking legitimate business access. S-GATE also strengthens security and enforces separation of duties (SOD) by preventing DBAs from performing security functions such as creating new database accounts and elevating privileges for existing accounts. At the same time, authorized individuals can continue to use their super user or system privileges to perform day-to-day administrative tasks – including backups, patching and tuning – without interruption.
