DVAudit-db Database Security Assessment Services



As more organizations leverage the Internet for business and commercial transactions, attackers are focusing on database and web applications to penetrate corporate security controls. Historically, developers have focused on functionality over security, which has presented an entirely new venue for attackers to launch exploits and compromise systems and information.

Databases frequently contain business critical information such as customer names, company account information, credit card details etc. Over the last few years there has been an ever increasing awareness that databases are being targeted by professional hackers for financial gain. Greater demands for 24 hour access to business applications by vendors, suppliers and customers has greatly increased the number of databases and the number of people and applications requiring access to the information contained within the database. Databases are complex pieces of software with vulnerabilities which can be exploited by criminals who are determined to access your critical business information

Service Description

Digivera's DVAudit-db Database vulnerability assessment and compliance service provides a customized, extensive, impartial, and periodic security analysis of your database applications and servers. This service evaluates current security standards and levels of compliance to give organizations a well-developed matrix of existing threats, database application vulnerabilities, and real-world recommendations to address specific weaknesses. In addition, we use a library of proprietary tests, custom and commercial developed tools to check for vulnerabilities that cannot be identified through automated means.
