Repscan v4.0 extends Sentrigo’s strong security offering to those organizations deploying applications on Microsoft SQL Azure database environments, ensuring their data is protected while also providing the necessary information to demonstrate compliance
Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) November 16, 2010
Sentrigo, Inc., the innovator in database security software, today announced the latest version of its leading database vulnerability assessment and security scanning software solution: Repscan 4.0. The new release, now available with more flexible pricing options, offers expanded support for cloud-based and open source database platforms, productivity enhancements for database administrators (DBAs) and added management capabilities.
Among the new platforms supported by Repscan 4.0 is Microsoft® SQL Azure™ Database, a cloud-based relational database service built on SQL Server® technologies that provides a highly available, scalable, multi-tenant database service hosted by Microsoft in the cloud. Sentrigo’s support for the Microsoft SQL Azure platform represents the first database vulnerability assessment solution to test against the cloud-based database, and further assists organizations by providing a more secure environment in which to leverage the benefits of cloud computing. The new version includes 100’s of tests designed for the SQL Azure environment, and has been implemented to efficiently evaluate configuration parameters relevant for securing this emerging architecture.
“This latest release of Repscan extends our strong security offering to those organizations deploying applications on Microsoft SQL Azure database environments, ensuring their data is protected while also providing the necessary information to demonstrate compliance,” said Dan Sarel, vice president of products at Sentrigo. “These advancements demonstrate Sentrigo’s leadership and commitment in helping organizations take advantage of the many benefits of cloud computing environments, while meeting regulatory mandates and mitigating the risk of a serious breach.”
Repscan 4.0 also augments support for open source databases with the addition of PostgreSQL, a widely-deployed open source object-relational database system. Support for MySQL was added in the previous release of Repscan, introduced this past June. In addition, Repscan 4.0 further expands platform support by including capabilities for scanning of Sybase ASE systems, extending the breadth of platforms which already included Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, and IBM DB2.
Also new in Repscan 4.0 are a number of new features to simplify and speed common actions of DBAs as they work to remediate discovered vulnerabilities. For example, DBAs with appropriate account access and privileges can apply changes to one or more databases directly from within Repscan, addressing identified problems without leaving the tool. The new version also provides direct Internet search capability, allowing users to quickly find additional detail and the latest information on vulnerabilities. Several new reports developed for management roles, including executive overview and summary-level reports, are also included in Repscan 4.0.
Pricing & Availability
Pricing for Repscan 4.0 is now available on a pay-per-scan license, as well as the previously available perpetual license, allowing organizations to get an initial assessment completed more cost-effectively for a single use, or as the need for compliance audits dictate. Pricing flexibility also benefits auditors, penetration testers, PCI-DSS QSAs and QSVs and security consultants conducting one-time reviews of client database security.
