Ideras SQL Secure Ensures SQL Server Permissions Comply with PCI HIPAA Regulations

Security Analysis Solution Provides New Automated Templates to Ensure Compliance with Industry Audit and Regulatory Requirements

HOUSTON – JULY 10, 2012 – Today, Idera, a leading provider of application and server management solutions announced the availability of SQL secure 2.7. SQL secure 2.7 is the latest version of Idera’s security analysis solution that helps database administrators (DBAs) identify security issues in order to improve security and ensure compliance with corporate and industry audit requirements.

In addition to supporting SQL Server 2012, the new release helps IT administrators easily and quickly ensure compliance by providing:
  • Weak password detection and analysis
  • Policy templates for reporting on SQL Server permissions as required by the Payment Card Industry (PCI) and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
  • Support for FIPS 140 (Federal Information Processing Standards)
  • Automated auditing of security models and reports of who has access to what, and how permissions are granted on SQL servers
“A DBA’s plate is already full with daily database performance management, backup and security tasks. Auditing security policies and ensuring that government compliance requirements are met adds a whole host of additional duties,” said Juan Rogers, Product Manager for SQL Server Security Solutions at Idera. “SQL secure eases the compliance burden by enabling a DBA to go back and link directly to the specific regulatory citation and automatically audit and record the required permissions and security policy data. When the auditors come knocking, a DBA who uses SQL secure is ready with the report in hand.”
