Solutions Provider Contributes Public Cloud Database Security Expertise
ROCHESTER, NY, August 25, 2020 -- Public cloud database security solutions provider SecureCloudDB today announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing, and to provide education on the uses of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing.
The team behind SecureCloudDB brings more than 60 years of experience building and running security solutions to the Cloud Security Alliance. CEO of SecureCloudDB, Aaron Klein, said
“It is our mission to help organizations keep sensitive data safe in their public cloud databases. We believe our membership with the CSA underscores our commitment to that endeavor and we look forward to contributing to the ongoing efforts of the cloud security community.”
IT infrastructures have moved out of the data center into the public cloud. But what worked to secure the data center, doesn’t work to protect cloud databases. In fact, 83% of enterprises state cloud security is a challenge1 and 84% of organizations say traditional security solutions don’t work or have limited functionality in cloud environments2.
Through its namesake SaaS platform, SecureCloudDB addresses the unique security needs of public cloud database users. SecureCloudDB supports enterprises, government entities and the audit community in tightening security, fulfilling compliance, reducing risk of data breaches and decreasing incident response time.
SecureCloudDB is specifically designed to integrate with AWS and Azure cloud environments. The solution provides a complete public database inventory, accurately locating all of an organization's databases as well as their backups by service, engine and region. True zero-knowledge and noninvasive security violations assessments uncover vulnerabilities that could be exploited, including misconfigurations, public access, misalignment with best practices and more. A risk summary analysis pinpoints high risk areas and provides remediation suggestions. Risk scores allow organizations to track security improvements. Database activity monitoring and alerting traces events and captures anomalies, reporting on policy breaches in real time and providing insight to event correlation and causality without degrading database performance.
Intelligent dashboards, data drilldowns, and a repository of security rules and reports simplify and streamline security management, connecting users with the most pertinent information and easily communicating security posture to both technical and non-technical stakeholders.
Jim Reavis, CEO of Cloud Security Alliance, said “Establishing an effective database security posture in the cloud is completely different from what it takes for on-premises databases. We’re pleased to have SecureCloudDB join the Cloud Security Alliance. Their expertise will go a long way in helping enterprises and governments get set up for and run a successful public cloud database security program.”
At SecureCloudDB, we pride ourselves on solving the biggest problem in the public cloud: keeping valuable data safe. We deliver cloud database security effectively and noninvasively, where customer trust is earned and kept. At our core, SecureCloudDB operates on innovation - it's what drives us to deliver cybersecurity solutions with you in mind. SecureCloudDB was founded by a team of expert software developers and engineers with more than 60 years of experience building monitoring and security solutions. The firm is headquartered in Rochester, NY and has offices in Reno, NV and Seattle, WA as well as the UK and Argentina. Learn more, sign up for a demo, or register for a free trial.
