Do You Need Database Security Services?
If your company collects and stores any information about customers, suppliers, or other entities—and that means practically everybody—then you are responsible for database security standards. Many forms of data are legally considered to be private and so are protected by various laws and agreements. If your database security solutions are not up to scratch and a breach occurs, your organization may be subject to legal action.
The Business Importance of Database Security
- Data loss through corruption of files or programming errors
- Intentional attacks such as ransomware, firewall penetration, malware, and viruses that can destroy records, crash your network, and spread to other organizations
- Physical damage to servers
- Harmful effects regarding your reputation, brand equity, and customer trust
Database Security Services Are Different
Implementing database security standards is easier said than done. Database security threats require special treatment compared to applications. Database security issues cannot be addressed through automation due to the risk of configuration drift. Similarly, database security solutions must also deal with a lack of stability and the broken releases that can occur when overriding out-of-process changes.
