Glen Rock, NJ (Marketwire.com 6/8/2011) – STEALTHbits Technologies, a leading Data and Access Governance software vendor, today announced the release of a new SQL Server Management solution. As an extension to the award-winning StealthAUDIT Management Platform (SMP) for Data & Access Governance, the SQL Solution Set leverages the powerful core technologies available within SMP to provide holistic insight into Microsoft SQL databases – from effective access and permissions to resource allocation.
SMP for SQL boasts comprehensive reporting on SQL infrastructure, objects, operations, and permissions, and allows administrators to take full inventory of their SQL instances through discovery. The new solution's key features include the ability to detect and reduce permissions sprawl, discover rogue databases to curb security threats, uncover effective access and detect non-compliance, and retire stale and unnecessary databases. The SQL Solution Set can also secure custom applications leveraging SQL within organizations, as well as collect custom data based on queries written in SQL by leveraging SMP's core data collection capabilities.
"Data is an organization's biggest asset, and, in today's world, a tremendous amount of it lives in digital format in databases," said Chris Olsen, CISM, VP of Product Management at STEALTHbits. "It is vitally important to secure and safeguard that data across the entire environment, but SQL is an often overlooked repository. STEALTHbits' new solution not only addresses this governance hole, but does so by further extending a platform complete with ten years of customer requirements, feedback, and insight already built into it."
The StealthAUDIT Management Platform for Data & Access Governance spans the entire Microsoft computing environment – from Active Directory and the File System to Exchange, SharePoint, SQL and beyond. Detailed data collection combined with built-in business intelligence make SMP ideal for detecting and locking down data access vulnerabilities. STEALTHbits Technologies plans to expand the existing functionality across other common data repositories in future releases.
