GreenSQL, the award-winning leader in database security and compliance solutions, announced today the availability of a comprehensive software-based database security solution for Numergy customers. GreenSQL for Numergy is a powerful “database firewall” and out-of-the-box compliance solution that provides critical security and auditing functionality to Numergy-hosted databases. Effective immediately, Numergy partners can add the GreenSQL protection option when configuring their databases on Numergy’s IaaS.
GreenSQL protects corporate databases from SQL injection attacks and enables organizations to secure sensitive information (e.g., identity numbers, credit card numbers, e-mails and passwords) from unauthorized database access. Unique features such as automatic discovery of sensitive data, dynamic data masking, column-based access control and built-in compliance reports further protect the organization’s data assets while enforcing separation of duties and easing regulatory compliance.
“We are extremely sensitive to the importance of security, especially at the database level,” said Frank Bossel, Sales Director at Numergy. “The product helps our partners to immediately prevent SQL injection attacks, while providing a valuable set of tools to help our customers protect their sensitive data, enforce separation of duties and demonstrate compliance with regulatory directives.”
“GreenSQL was designed from the ground up to provide comprehensive database security for cloud-hosted and on-premises corporate databases,” said Amir Sadeh, CEO of GreenSQL. “Such technology will make European customers even more comfortable with moving sensitive corporate data to the cloud.”
GreenSQL, which can be up and running in less than an hour, acts as a reverse proxy between applications and Numergy-hosted databases, and works by inspecting every command sent to the cloud database in real-time, regardless of the source of the request. The benefits include preventing both SQL injection attacks and inadvertent data breaches, allowing developers and contractors to perform their duties without ever gaining access to sensitive or protected information (via dynamic data masking and column-based permissions), and significantly easing regulatory compliance with auto-discovery of sensitive data, built-in database activity monitoring (DAM) and out-of-the-box compliance reports for a variety of government and industry regulations.
Founded in September 2012, Numergy is a company specializing in the construction and operation of infrastructure cloud computing with French and European ambitions. With the support of its shareholders SFR, Bull and the Caisse des Dépôts, Numergy was designed to become a true "digital power plant" in the service of the economy and growth. Its mission: to provide businesses (SOHO, SME and large accounts ETI) and public organizations secured, efficient and competitive IT resources. Numergy guaranties and commits to the high availability of its infrastructure but also on the location of data on the French territory. More information: www.numergy.com; Twitter: @ Numergy
Founded in 2009, GreenSQL (http://www.greensql.com) provides unified database security and compliance solutions for enterprises running their databases on premises or in the cloud. The company’s all-in-one approach to database security helps organizations by protecting databases from SQL injection attacks (the most common data breach method today), securing sensitive information from unauthorized database access, enforcing separation-of-duties and meeting regulatory compliance requirements. With more than 150,000 downloads in 198 countries, GreenSQL is the most-used product for eliminating database vulnerabilities in the face of modern day cyber-attacks. The company, based in Tel Aviv, is backed by leading venture capital firms Jerusalem Venture Partners, Magma Venture Capital and Rhodium.

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
