SecureSphere Data Protection and Database Audit

SecureSphere Data Protection and Database Audit

Monitor enterprise-wide database activity, detect and stop unauthorized data access, and simplify compliance with data privacy and protection regulations.

Monitor and protect any data, anywhere

Monitor and protect any data, anywhere

Define and enforce uniform data security and compliance policy across the cloud and on-premises. Get single pane of glass management across relational databases, mainframes, big data platforms, data warehouses, and enterprise file stores. SecureSphere also supports databases in Microsoft Azure and Amazon Web Services – including Amazon Relational Database Services (RDS).

Identify suspicious activity

Get alerted to suspicious access activity. Dynamic profiling automatically builds a white list of the data objects regularly accessed by individual database accounts. Create policies that alert or block access when a profiled account attempts to access a data object that is not whitelisted. SecureSphere integrates with Imperva CounterBreach, which develops a full contextual baseline of typical user access to database tables using machine learning and peer group analysis.

Deploy your way

Deploy your way

SecureSphere supports flexible deployment options, on-premises, in the cloud, or blended hybrid. Data activity can be monitored using a network transparent bridge, a non-inline sniffer, or a lightweight database agent, so you can meet a wide variety of enterprise needs without being locked into a one-size-fits-all deployment model.

How SecureSphere Uniquely Protects Your Databases

Usability and Enterprise scalability

Usability and Enterprise scalability

Powerful and easy to use management tools, a multi-tier architecture and big data logging techniques enable you to monitor more data sources with fewer resources. High-performance appliances manage heavy traffic loads with minimal impact to database, application or network performance. Automatic load balancing, clustering and automated software management and health monitoring help ensure high availability and uninterrupted operation.

Monitoring and auditing of all database activity

Get enterprise-wide visibility into all database transactions, including local privileged user access and service account activity. SecureSphere continuously monitors across on-premises or cloud environments and collects consolidated records of all logins/logouts, updates, privileged activities and more to create granular audit trails that pinpoint the “who, what, when, where and how” for each database.

Immediate protection and fast time to value

Immediate protection and fast time to value

SecureSphere solutions can be deployed quickly to stop database attack threats with pre-defined security policies and automated discovery to find sensitive data and hidden vulnerabilities. SecureSphere looks for threats and attacks at the protocol and OS level, as well as for unauthorized SQL activity, then alerts quarantines, and if appropriate, block unauthorized activities to protect data.

Pre-built integrations with common SIEM tools

Pre-built integrations

Leverage your existing investments with integrations to key security technologies. SecureSphere integrates with SIEM products such as Splunk, ArcSight and QRadar and IAM products such as CyberArk. Splunk customers can take advantage of the free Imperva Database Audit Analysis App for Splunk. Integration with Imperva CounterBreach reduces the noise sent to the SIEM.
