San Jose, Calif.-based enterprise risk management solutions provider IPLocks unveiled IPLocks Information Risk Management Platform version 5.0. The vendor says it has added enhancements to the product to ease regulatory compliance, including the ability to capture user-behavior SQL statements, support for command line interface, and full platform support for monitoring Teradata (Dayton, Ohio) databases.
Today's increased attention to data privacy places a demand on organizations to strictly enforce database security and information risk management, according to Akio Sakamoto, president, CEO and cofounder of IPLocks. "Our customers have realized that it is not enough to rely only on perimeter-based security and encryption to prevent attacks," he says. Sakamoto adds that firms are deploying the IPLocks platform to extend their security to cover risks from internal users, including employees, super users, customers and business partners.
Key features new to version 5.0 include a high-speed data collector, which the vendor claims helps organizations understand what user activities occur by capturing full SQL statements that define user activity and when the occurrences took place; a command line Interface that allows administrators to use an external program or scheduler to create, schedule and scan databases, automating large deployments of the IPLocks platform; and Teradata monitoring, which brings IPLocks monitoring functionality to large-scale Teradata databases and data warehouses.
