Foundational Security

Foundational Security enables organizations to ensure all database elements are known and secured through asset discovery and security protocols.

It is the fundamental layer of security because it requires creating and maintaining comprehensive inventories of databases, backups, users, and accesses — you can't protect and manage what you don't know exists. It also mandates that configurations are regularly examined in order to verify whether data is protected and organizations are in compliance.

SecureCloudDB supports cloud database services while providing coverage for traditional databases hosted on EC2 instances. We also provide Foundational Security for on-premises databases for seamless monitoring and tracking before, during, and after cloud migrations.

90% of the organizations that fail to control public cloud use will inappropriately share sensitive data.


Features Include
SCDB Risk Summary 7.17.20-1

Security Risk Scoring

Gauge risk with a proprietary Risk Assessment that relays the security posture of databases at-a-glance.

Risk scores cover the level of system security, data exposure, encryption levels and more. Identify high risk areas that pose a substantial threat and take action. Track risk scores by category and in aggregate to benchmark risk levels and demonstrate improvement.


  • Database and security rules evaluation
  • Risk scores
  • Risk trends
  • Violation drilldowns

Vulnerability Assessments

Vulnerability Assessments

Uncover vulnerabilities that could be exploited, including misconfigurations, public access, misalignment with best practices and more. Check permissioning, data sovereignty, encryption, and security rules. Ensure databases are configured in accordance with security protocols.

  • True “Zero Knowledge” and non-intrusive techniques are utilized
  • All checks are performed externally without elevated privileges
  • The target cloud database is not affected

SCDB Inventory 7.17.20

Asset Discovery

Carry out an asset discovery to build inventories that catalog databases, backups, users, accesses, and security rules.

Know exactly how many databases exist, where data is located, if it’s backed up, and if it's secure. Understand user access and identity. 


  • Location
  • Geolocation 
  • Database metadata 
  • Encryption level


SCDB Home Dashboard 7.17.20-1

Reporting Facilities

Time-saving and easy to use dynamic reports confirm what information is secure, establish where problem areas exist and review remediation suggestions.

Easily communicate results to both technical and non-technical stakeholders in order to prioritize actions based on level of severity, document the plan and verify changes. Comprehensive intel provides a past and present perspective.



Universal Foundational Support For Database Migration

When migrating databases, it is critical to maintain security through the migration process, including monitoring activity on sensitive databases. Otherwise, databases may be left vulnerable due to elevated permissions during the migration (a team may elevate permissions to an external team doing the migration and forget to remove them). SecureCloudDB’s support for databases in the cloud and on-premises allows you to maintain a strong security posture for the duration of your migration to the cloud.
