DB Networks Partners with Intersec Worldwide to Deliver Behavioral Analysis-based Core IDS to Customers Worldwide -- Partnership Uniquely Addresses Need for Continuous Monitoring of Database Traffic to Identify Advanced and Highly Obfuscated Attacks
SAN DIEGO, May 15, 2014 -- DB Networks, an innovator of behavioral analysis in database security
, today announced that it has partnered with Intersec Worldwide, Inc., a global leader in information security and compliance solutions. Through this partnership, Intersec Worldwide will offer DB Networks’ IDS-6300 next-generation Core IDS to their customers in a wide variety of segments including financial services and retail, as well as online applications.
Intersec Worldwide offers next-generation solutions to address today’s advanced IT security problems. DB Networks’ IDS-6300 Core IDS certainly fits that bill. The IDS-6300 detects rogue SQL statements while operating 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. It then evaluates each SQL statement 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.
With decades of experience, Intersec Worldwide’s service area includes North America, Europe, South America and Asia. Its executive team of consultants is comprised of experts in the field of Information Security, including some of the most well-known, well-respected, and in-demand IT security experts in the industry.
“Through the partnership, Intersec Worldwide customers gain access to next-generation continuous core network monitoring and database activity behavioral analysis products,” said Brett Helm, CEO of DB Networks. “Our technology and products along with Intersec’s IT security and compliance expertise provide the opportunity to address advanced database security threats and meet a variety of domestic and international compliance regulations.”
“DB Networks’ behavioral analysis technology has proven to be an attractive approach to database security that is desperately needed in today’s business climate,” said Jeff Tutton, CISO of Intersec Worldwide, Inc. “The collaboration between DB Networks and Intersec Worldwide will help businesses tap into the technologies and services required to remain secure while under constant attack. We look forward to offering our customers a solution to finally identify advanced SQL injection attacks in real-time.”
“The partnership will also allow us to expand both our Professional and Security Managed Service offerings and move beyond other providers in our industry to uncover SQL issues on the fly,” Tutton continued. “Whether these issues are caused by poor application development and implementation or a real-time attack on the database, it is critical that we have this information and provide immediate solutions to our customers.”
