The NWC Interview: Imperva's Shlomo Kramer
What drives the database security business?
First is the new threat landscape. Today's hackers are motivated by profit. Attacks try to stay under the radar and are targeted against your organization's business processes, your organization's data.
The second driver is the black market for information. That drives not only attacks from outside the organization, like the hacker sitting in Russia, but also the marketing analyst sitting within the organization--with legitimate access--and abusing the privileges because he knows he can sell the data on the black market.
Perhaps the strongest driver of all is the convergence of compliance and security, and the need to control the usage of data for various regulations such as SOX or PCI DSS [Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard]. The latest PCI release spells out database monitoring as a required compensating control.
