CimTrak for Databases

Monitor Critical Database Objects and Settings for Changes


Managing the security parameters of databases might be one of the most overlooked security risks and vulnerabilities in today's environments. Many security professionals don't understand that a database consists of more than just 'data'... as a result, they don't understand the perceived threats and risks. CimTrak for Databases reports on all changes to critical database components and immediately alerts you to those changes.  




Monitoring changes to critical database components is essential to ensuring the integrity of your data remains intact. By instantly detecting changes to configuration files, security settings, stored procedures, triggers, tables, users, schema, and executable files, you can take swift and corrective action to determine if a change was intentional, malicious, or accidental.
