Tech Info

IBM DB2 being one of the best relational databases on the market is still vulnerable to hacker attacks and insider threats. DataSunrise IBM DB2 Security is a data centric security tool. It protects databases in real time on the premises and in the cloud. It is a perfect defense against any type of threat, vulnerability or security risk. DataSunrise IBM DB2 Security also helps companies to meet regulatory compliance standards.

DataSunrise performs deep traffic filtering on application level. Every incoming and outgoing packet is analyzed for compliance with the customized rules set. If the transaction triggers a security rule, the blocking scenario includes disconnection of a client from the database or closing of the session.

DataSunrise is deployed as a proxy. It acts as an intermediary between client and server and prevents direct communication between two nodes. DataSunrise audits and logs queries and blocks execution of the queries that violate security policies.
