White Paper: Facing Reality - Top Database Security Trends
Enterprise database infrastructure is subject to an overwhelming range of threats. Securing databases and the data they host is challenging not only because of the volume of data spread across heterogeneous platforms, but also because of the increased sophistication and rising rate of database security threats. This paper reviews the top database security trends that IT managers and security teams struggle to keep up with, including: advanced persistent threat (APT), SQL injection, implementation of audit controls, database patch and configuration management, limiting users rights to data based on business need-to-know, abuse of legitimate data access privileges, and cloud security.
