Tech Info

DataSunrise database firewall protects your database on Percona Server against various security threats. Our firewall filters the network traffic according to policies defined by administrators.

At the early stages of deployment DataSunrise functions in a self-learning mode. It examines incoming traffic and creates a whitelist of approved SQL commands typical for certain environment. Further on, only queries that match the whitelist are allowed to pass through to the database. Firewall blocks all the other commands and notifies the administrators about suspicious activity.

Detailed information about approved/blocked queries and results of their execution is logged for further analysis. Privileged users can pose a threat as well, that’s why configuration or rule changes are also protocoled. There is an opportunity to prevent account sharing and to block queries containing defined SQL statements or coming from certain applications, hosts. Access can be restricted to defined elements of the database (tables, columns, stored procedures, schemas).
