Adding Database Firewall and Dynamic Data Masking
Krontech Releases Single Connect™ 2.9 Adding Database Firewall and Dynamic Data Masking
Krontech Inc., a global leader in enterprise and service provider network and data access management technologies, announced today the availability of its popular Single Connect™ platform, now enhanced with a database firewall and dynamic data masking, protecting admin sessions across Oracle, MSSQL, MySQL, Cassandra DB and all other major database providers.
Single Connect™ is the first and the only Privileged Access Management (PAM) solution in the market that offers Dynamic Data Masking.
“Working with our customers and partners, who have the most stringent requirements for protecting the integrity of their data and the overall operations of their networks, the Krontech development team has extended our solutions to meet increasing demands as the threat surface grows,” said Osman Erkan, CEO, Krontech. “We have always engaged closely with the market to understand their most pressing needs, and through this process addressed their requests for more sensitive data discovery support and many other unique features, now available in our latest release.”
According to a study by CSC, there will be a 4300% increase in annual data generation by 2020, driven in large part by digital transformation in enterprises. More than 1/3 of that data will be stored in the cloud, or pass through the cloud, and be transmitted across multiple networks.
The increasing threat surface is of major concern, particularly as data privacy and sharing regulations are on the rise, including GDPR, HIPAA, and the new California data legislation that will go into effect in 2020. “It has never been more important for enterprises to protect what they connect,” Osman continued. “We continually invest in software that addresses today and tomorrow’s requirements, including ensuring cloud services, session and storage are as protected as on-prem systems. Single Connect™ now provides features and enhancements that none of our competitors’ products provide. With this update, Single Connect™ enables full visibility and control over DB admin sessions by indisputably logging all DB queries, enforcing custom DB Access policies, and doing so with dynamic data masking.”
The growth in attacks, and the variety of attacks prove there is not one single and simple way of securing data. There are different dimensions of how to secure databases, including eliminating the sharing of local privileged account credentials (sysdba, dba, system, root, etc.), eliminating database account credentials that are embedded in application scripts or configuration files, and indisputably logging and recording DB admin sessions, among others.
Krontech’s Single Connect™ routinely implements these best practices to defend against insider threats.
Single Connect™ is a Privileged Access Management tool providing secured, centralized and automated management of passwords for administrative, service and application accounts, and the enforcement of policies. The solution includes controlled access to shared accounts, management and monitoring of privileged sessions, commands and actions in real time, and recording and reporting for compliance and audit. The solution is agentless, scalable and easily integrates into existing management platforms, pre-integrated with the most popular email, messaging and other business applications.
