Database Security Monitoring & Management

for SQL Server, Azure SQL Database,
and Amazon RDS for SQL Server

SQL Secure

See who has access to what and
how permissions are granted

There are many different and complex ways to grant access to SQL Server. It is virtually impossible to manually analyze a security model across instances or determine rights of users on specific database objects. SQL Secure answers the important question, “Who can do what, where, and how on my SQL Server databases?” SQL Secure provides a comprehensive, automated solution for analyzing, monitoring and reporting on security access rights for SQL Servers including managed cloud databases.

  • Identify vulnerabilities and harden security policies.
  • Rank security levels with the security report card.
  • Analyze user permissions across database objects.
  • Audit using templates for regulatory compliance.

SQL Secure provided us with baseline analysis of potential security threats.

  • Analyze effective rights

    Analyze the effective rights of users to show how and where each right is granted. This makes it easy to pinpoint exactly what to change to close security holes.

  • View database roles permissions

    View role members and sub-roles assigned and their effective permissions for SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, and Amazon RDS for SQL Server.

  • Analyze server object settings

    Reduce data collection, transmission, and storage overhead with powerful filtering capabilities that enable you to collect only the data that is important for audit and compliance.

  • Detect weak passwords

    Analyze password health of SQL Server logins and reports on passwords that are weak or blank which would cause a susceptible to intrusion situation.

  • Identify surface area and protocols

    Identify services, ports, protocols, and application performance interfaces (APIs) that allow malicious users to attack SQL Server, Azure SQL Database, and Amazon RDS for SQL Server.

  • Analyze operating system security

    Assess the setup of the operating system (OS) to identify issues that would compromise SQL Server security.

  • Analyze powerful users

    Analyze the membership to powerful server roles and groups such as database, system, and security administrators to ensure this level of access is warranted.

  • Detect unresolved Windows accounts

    View all logins on the target server, and any unresolved Windows accounts or groups.

  • View server security properties

    Show all security-related properties for servers including the version and patch level, authentication mode, audit mode, proxy account, and cross database chaining.

  • Self-audit administration

    Monitor all activity related to SQL Secure administration.

  • Use predefined policy templates

    Audit for standards via distinct levels (basic, balanced, strong) that define realistic guidelines for protecting SQL Server from common intrusion attacks.

  • Analyze reporting services

    Show details of services such as log-on and configuration.

  • Generate security scorecard

    List potential security concerns such as cross-database chaining and drill down to view the full details of the diagrammed relationships.

  • View history and baselines

    The SQL Secure repository keeps a complete history of SQL Server security settings to designate a baseline to detect changes.

  • Run powerful reporting

    Access built-in standard reports and create custom reports to provide detailed information for security auditing and compliance.

  • Assess risk

    Security audit rules provide visibility for database access checks, configuration checks, and permission checks.

  • Check security

    Increase security audit coverage via additional checks for data protection, encryption, and firewall rules.

  • Report across servers

    Show security state from a global view (for example, all instances with guest accounts enabled).

  • Manage from central console

    Manage the creation of collection rules and policies, view risks and assessments, monitor collection history, and analyze user access rights via a single point of control.

  • Configure data collection

    Define what security information to gather and when. Gather from physical, virtual, and cloud hosts, operating systems, file systems, Registry, and Active Directory.

  • Store data in central repository

    SQL Secure stores all security data collected in a central repository for easy reporting and forensic analysis.

  • Use flexible views

    Use the flexible grid view to audit and analyze user permissions. Sort, group, or export all SQL Server logins in the enterprise.

  • Automate server registration

    Support for large SQL Server environments with significant gains in time to value via the comma-separated values (CSV) file import process.

  • Tag server groups

    Assign servers to groups, then view and manage security policies according to group designations.

    • Install on cloud virtual machines

      Unify control by running SQL Secure on cloud virtual machines with Windows—such as Azure Virtual Machine (VM) and Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

    • Monitor SQL Server on cloud virtual machines

      Monitor SQL Server instances running on cloud virtual machines—such as Azure VM and Amazon EC2.

    • Monitor hybrid environments with a single tool

      Save time by using the same performance-monitoring tool for SQL Server databases on physical and virtual machines on-premises; on virtual machines in the private, public, and government cloud; and as managed databases in the public and government cloud.

    • Access mapped cloud drives

      Map cloud storage as network drives or removable drives on Windows. For example, map storage to Amazon Simple Storage Service (S3) and Azure Blob Storage.

    • Monitor managed SQL Server cloud databases

      Extend cloud capabilities with monitoring the managed cloud databases Azure SQL Database and Amazon RDS for SQL Server.
