Sentrigo Releases Hedgehog

WOBURN, Mass. -- Sentrigo, Inc., an innovator in database security software, today announced the general availability of Hedgehog. The product, currently available for Oracle databases on multiple operating systems, is software-only and can be downloaded and installed in minutes to provide unprecedented protection against breaches by company insiders and hackers alike, in addition to providing virtual patching against known vulnerabilities. Hedgehog is the first product specifically designed to combat data breaches caused by insiders with access privilegesincluding employees, developers and consultants. Numerous studies have concluded that most data breaches are caused by company insiders. With Hedgehog, organizations have a solution whose unique design makes it easy and quick to deploy, yet protects databases from even the most sophisticated insiders. “The vast majority of organizations today—including those in financial services, government, healthcare, education and retail—have very little visibility into what’s going on in their databases,” said Nathan Shuchami, chief executive officer of Sentrigo. “True database security must happen at the object level. This is the only approach that can provide protection with the required degree of granularity to detect and prevent breaches by insiders.” Eric Ogren, principal analyst with the Ogren Group, commented: “Sentrigo’s focus on the database and Hedgehog’s unique approach make the product a compelling option for organizations looking to intensify their focus on database protection. The database security market is rapidly evolving as enterprises and institutions comply with regulations to protect their confidential data by fortifying the databases themselves. Sentrigo is on the leading edge of this new and fast-growing market.”

Organizations across geographies and industry sectors have been working with the early access version of Hedgehog with immediate results. N.E.W. Customer Service Companies, Inc. (NEW) is the nation’s leading provider of extended service plans that protect the purchases of more than 100 million consumers annually. “Protecting the privacy and confidentiality of our customers’ information stored in our databases is paramount to our business,” said Barry Danoff, group vice president of information systems of the Dulles, Va.-based company. “Our interest in providing the highest level of database protection available led us to participate in Sentrigo’s early access program, and we are impressed with Hedgehog’s granular protection and its facilitation of compliance with requirements such as PCI DSS.”
