    Aug 4, 2020 / by SecureCloudDB

    SecureCloudDB is always working to improve our users' experience. We’re excited to announce that the following enhancements and new features are now available;  especially the addition of Database Activity Monitoring (details below)!



    • Explore SecureCloudDB functionality without having to set up an organization and pull in your own information 
      • We’ve created an organization titled “Public” that is prepopulated with sample data
      • If it is your first time creating a SecureCloudDB account or if you have previously created an account but did not set up an organization, you will immediately see the sample data populating dashboards and reports upon logging in
      • If you have already created your SecureCloudDB account and have set up an organization, but would like to see the sample data, simply select “Public” from the drop-down organizations menu in the gray bar at top of the screen, to the right of the SecureCloudDB logo. Then peruse the various dashboards and reports
      • Don’t forget to take advantage of any drill down options within the dashboards and reports to see additional detail

    • In “Home Dashboard”, the “Security Violations” pane now drills down into additional detail on which service is in violation; click on the arrow to the left of “Critical”, “Info” or “Warning” in the pane to see “Counts” and “Trends” by service. Each “Count” links to a Security Violations Report in which you can drill down further into the violation. Simply click on the “ID” in the report to access additional details such as the rule description, remediation and source code. To access the report, select “Dashboards” in the main menu, click on "Home Dashboard"

    • Use the report to confirm whether database activity is inline with expectations
