Idera Announces New Versions of SQL Server Security Auditing and Compliance Products

SQL secure and SQL compliance manager Provide Industry-Leading Solution for Managing Database Security, Auditing and Compliance

NEW ORLEANS – June 8, 2010 – In booths #2141 and 2143 at Microsoft TechEd, Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SQL Server management and administration solutions, today announced the latest versions of its SQL Server security, auditing and compliance products, SQL secure™ 2.6 and SQL compliance manager 3.2.

“SQL secure 2.6 helps guide DBAs to implement the best level of security for their needs and ensure that their databases meet and exceed the latest industry and government security guidelines,” said Rick Pleczko, President and CEO of Idera. “SQL compliance manager monitors SQL Server databases in real-time to detect and alert on suspect activity and capture an unimpeachable audit trail to ensure compliance requirements are satisfied. Both of these products are essential to ensuring a well-secured and compliant SQL Server environment.”

Because of the many complex ways to grant access to SQL Server databases, it is virtually impossible to manually analyze a security model across instances or determine a user’s rights on specific database objects. SQL secure is a security and permissions management solution that performs this analysis automatically and answers the important question: ‘Who can do what, where, and on which SQL Servers?’ With SQL secure, you can set security policies, alert on violations, monitor changes made to security settings and provide recommendations on how to improve security. 

SQL secure 2.6 includes three new policy templates by SQL Server security level to ensure security needs are met across different databases and application. The new version also adds 25 new security checks covering a variety of login, permissions, configurations, data access and data integrity needs.

SQL compliance manager is a comprehensive SQL Server auditing solution that answers ‘Who did what, when and how on your SQL Servers,’ helping to ensure compliance with regulatory and data security requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley, GLBA, HIPAA, and Basel II. SQL compliance manager 3.2 now enables column-level before and after auditing, allowing DBAs to easily track which DML events affected specific columns on sensitive database tables, and monitor the column value before and after the event..
