GreenSQL Joins Cloud Security Alliance
TEL AVIV, Israel --(Business Wire)--
the leader in database security and compliance solutions for the cloud,
today announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a
not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best
practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing, and
to provide education on the uses of Cloud Computing to help secure all
other forms of computing. GreenSQL is a powerful "database firewall" and
compliance solution that adds important security and auditing
functionality to cloud-hosted and on-premises databases.
GreenSQL helps protect customers from SQL injection attacks and enables
organizations to secure sensitive information (e.g., SSNs, credit card
numbers, e-mails and passwords) from unauthorized database access,
enforce separation-of-duties, mask sensitive data, monitor and audit
data access and meet regulatory compliance requirements. Installed as a
front-end to the cloud database, the GreenSQL solution fully camouflages
and secures database applications and the data they maintain.
Furthermore, GreenSQL's Database Activity Monitoring (DAM) is a powerful
solution that independently monitors and audits all database�activity
across both cloud and traditional database platforms. Using
administrative access, it is easy to define audit trail policy for
all�sensitive tables and/or columns, and see a "before and after" view
of all changes made.
"GreenSQL brings to the CSA a fast, efficient and powerful security and
compliance solution that helps companies implement best practices around
the databases they host on Amazon AWS, Google Cloud Platform, SoftLayer (News - Alert),
Microsoft Azure and many oters," said Amir Sadeh, CEO of GreenSQL. "Our
software provides real-time interception of malicious and inadvertent
threats, while also allowing developers and contractors to perform their
duties without ever gaining access to sensitive or protected
"We are pleased to welcome GreenSQL into the Cloud Security Alliance,"
said Jim Reavis, CEO, Cloud Security Alliance. "GreenSQL's offering is
particularly well-aligned with the CSA's mission to promote the use of
security best practices in Cloud Computing environments. We look forward
to a long and mutually beneficial relationship."
Available now for enterprise databases running on a wide variety of
cloud hosting providers, including most recently Amazon
Web Services, GreenSQL's unified software approach provides database
security, Database Activity Monitoring (DAM), and dynamic data masking
in one comprehensive solution, addressing numerous database security
needs. Unique features such as automatic sensitive data discovery,
dynamic data masking, column-based access control and built-in
compliance reports further protect the organization's data assets while
easing separation-of-duties enforcement and regulatory compliance.
