Intrusion Detection and Security Auditing In Oracle


Database intrusion detection and security auditing continues to grow in importance. Thus, monitoring your database applications is a critical component of achieving a strong defense-in-depth around your sensitive data. However, to be efficient and effective, you must use the right combination of tools. Monitoring should never replace other layers in the security stack—it should complement the existing pieces instead.

Security Auditing In Microsoft SQL Server


As digital information has become more and more critical to businesses, firewalls—which once served as the walls of the fortress, have now become an archaic means of defense. Thus, as threats evolve, responses must change as well. Rather than focusing protection solely on perimeter security, it is imperative to look at protecting data at the source—inside the database.

Metagenix Reverse Engineers Data Into Information


Metagenix’ MetaRecon reverse engineers metadata information by examining the raw data contained in the source(s) rather than depending on the data dictionaries of the existing legacy systems (which are often incorrect). Other unique Metagenix approaches include an "open book" policy, which includes publishing product price lists on their web site and complete access to company officials, including CEO and President Greg Leman.

Data Center Projects: Advantages of Using a Reference Design


It is no longer practical or cost-effective to completely engineer all aspects of a unique data center. Re-use of proven, documented subsystems or complete designs is a best practice for both new data centers and for upgrades to existing data centers. Adopting a well-conceived reference design can have a positive impact on both the project itself, as well as on the operation of the data center over its lifetime. Reference designs simplify and shorten the planning and implementation process and reduce downtime risks once up and running. In this paper reference designs are defined and their benefits are explained.
