Application Security, Inc. (AppSecInc) the leading provider of database security solutions for the enterprise, today announced that Government Security News Magazine has selected AppDetectivePro and DbProtect as finalists in three categories of the 4th Annual GSN Homeland Security Awards. The annual contest celebrates the public-private collaboration that makes up the nation’s homeland security apparatus by presenting awards to leading vendors of IT and physical security products and solutions, and to federal, state, county and municipal agencies for notable achievements in government programs, projects, strategies and initiatives.
AppSecInc’s database security platform, DbProtect, has been named as a finalist in the Best Continuous Monitoring Solution and Best Data Security/Loss Management Solution categories. AppDetectivePro has been chosen as a finalist for the Best Compliance/Vulnerability Assessment award.
DbProtect provides a complete database security, risk and compliance solution for government and commercial enterprise organizations. The innovative software identifies and monitors vulnerabilities, missing patches, misconfigurations, excessive user privileges, and suspicious activity. DbProtect also features a correlation capability that allows the system to instantly detect toxic combinations where multiple issues converge to leave a system highly vulnerable to attack or misuse. Combined with DbProtect Active Response, the system can automatically protect exposed databases without the need for patching, reconfiguration, or extensive application regression testing.
AppDetectivePro is utilized by corporate IT advisors and practitioners, regardless of skill level, to perform easy and repeatable database security assessments, capture all results for control checks, and generate compliance reports.
“For the past ten years, AppSecInc has worked with government agencies to help protect their vital, highly sensitive data,” states Thom VanHorn, VP of Global Marketing, AppSecInc. “We are dedicated to delivering comprehensive solutions that meet the government’s unique needs for database security and continuous monitoring, and we are pleased to be named a finalist for the prestigious GSN Awards.”
AppSecInc’s products are backed by the TeamSHATTER knowledgebase, the most extensive set of database vulnerability and misconfiguration checks and rules on the market. AppSecInc’s ASAP Update mechanism ensures protection remains current. As new vulnerabilities and exploits are identified and database patches are released, DbProtect and AppDetectivePro are systematically updated to ensure the latest protection for critical database assets.
Winners of the awards will be announced at a gala dinner on November 29, 2012 in Washington, DC.
