Sentrigo expands database activity monitoring and intrusion prevention suite

Also adds protection specific to SQL server to Hedgehog vPatch

By CBR Staff Writer

Sentrigo has expanded its database activity monitoring and intrusion prevention suite with the release of Hedgehog 3.0. It supports Microsoft SQL Server 2008 running on Windows Server 2008, in addition to SQL Server 2005 and 2000 running on earlier Windows platforms.

In addtion, Hedgehog vPatch, a virtual patching service now includes additional protections specific to SQL Server. Hedgehog 3.0 also provides enhancements based on customer input, specifically to meet the demand for database monitoring to satisfy regulatory requirements, Sentrigo said.

The company said that the new or enhanced compliance features include: masking of information based on regular expressions; monitoring of repeated valid activities that are likely to be indicative of a threat; and improved performance auditing allowing customers to log activity to a flat file.

According to Sentrigo, Hedgehog family of database security products include: Enterprise, vPatch, Identifier and Standard. Enterprise is the database activity monitoring product to provide visibility into all activities, including local access, protecting the database in real-time with actionable alerts and intrusion prevention capabilities.

In addition, the vPatch is a subscription service that protects customers’ databases against known and zero day exploits during the critical time; IDentifier is an add-on to Hedgehog Enterprise for detecting the person responsible for database activity in a pooled connection environment; and Standard is a free version of the Hedgehog software for smaller database environments, and is limited to alerting only, the company said.
