DB Networks Partners with AMP Tech Solutions to Deliver Behavioral Analysis-based Core IDS to Federal Market -- Partnership Uniquely Addresses Need for Continuous Monitoring of Database Traffic to Identify Advanced and Highly Obfuscated Attacks within Federal Agencies
SAN DIEGO, Mar. 4, 2014 -- DB Networks, an innovator of behavioral analysis in database security
, today announced it has partnered with AMP Tech Solutions (AMP Tech), which sells technology solutions to the Federal Government in affiliation with Alvarez & Associates, a Service Disabled Veteran Owned Small Business (SDVO/SB). Through this partnership, DB Networks’ IDS-6300 next-generation Core IDS will be offered through the NASA Solutions for Enterprise-Wide Procurement (SEWP) IV contract and is available to all government agencies for effective identification of advanced database attacks.
DB Networks’ IDS-6300 Core IDS detects rogue SQL statements and operates passively and transparently as a physical or virtual appliance. It creates a unique model of how an application creates SQL statements to converse with the database and evaluates these statements against the model for proper behavior. Any rogue SQL statement, such as a SQL injection, causes the system to alarm and show an attack
. This behavioral learning and model creation is automated, making it much faster and more accurate than what is currently available through manually generating signatures or the tuning of signatures to suppress false alarms.
AMP Tech is a marketing and sales IT solutions company that solves big technology problems by delivering economical, leading-edge technologies quickly and economically to government agencies.
“Though our partnership with AMP Tech, we can more easily reach government customers and help them with their security and compliance requirements through continuous core monitoring and behavioral analysis of network activity,” said Brett Helm, CEO of DB Networks. “Our technology and products along with their systems integration expertise provide the opportunity to address advanced database security threats at the government agencies, where cyber
security and compliance is of critical importance.”
“DB Networks behavioral analysis technology has been field proven as a highly effective approach for database security and is truly unique in the industry,” said Kirk Hanson, President of AMP Tech Solutions. “We’re excited to offer DB Networks’ Core IDS to our government customers, so they can mitigate risk and finally identify advanced database attacks in real-time.”
