San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) February 16, 2005
Next Generation Security Software Ltd. (NGS) announced today their latest database application security scanner, SQuirreL for Sybase. Used heavily in Wall Street investment banks and financial institutions, Sybase is a popular database platform that has recently been the focus of the researchers at the UK-based firm.
"SQuirreL for Sybase contains the most comprehensive set of Sybase security checks available anywhere," said Mark Litchfield, one of the world's most prominent database vulnerability researchers. "SQuirreL for Sybase includes checks for vulnerabilities discovered by the NGS research team that are not available in any other product. This is a must buy product for anybody using Sybase and it is now available through the guys at Special Ops."
Special Ops Security, the US distributor for NGS Software products, showed off the new SQuirreL for Sybase along with the other suite of database application scanners (SQuirreL for SQL, SQuirreL for Oracle, and SQuirreL for DB2) at the 2005 RSA Security Conference, the world's largest gathering of security professionals. "Some of our larger banking clients have been waiting for this particular SQuirreL, and they're anxious to deploy it within their infrastructure," said Erik Pace Birkholz, CEO of Special Ops Security, Inc.
Special Ops Security is immediately fulfilling orders for all US-based organizations with a need for Sybase database application security.
