Santa Clara, CA (PRWEB) February 17, 2011
Sentrigo, Inc., the innovator in database security and compliance solutions for on-premise and cloud deployments, today announced that Info Security Products Guide, the industry's leading information security research and advisory resource, has named Hedgehog DBscanner a winner of the 2011 Global Excellence Award in the ‘Best Security Software Product’ category; the comprehensive vulnerability assessment and security scanning solution was also named a finalist in the ‘Vulnerability Assessment/Remediation/Management’ category.
More than 50 judges from a broad spectrum of industry voices from around the world participated and their average scores determined the 2011 Global Excellence Awards finalists. Winners were then announced during the awards dinner and presentation on February 16, 2011 in San Francisco -- which was attended by the finalists as well as the judges.
Hedgehog DBscanner streamlines the process of identifying sensitive data on a network and securing it properly to meet regulatory standards. By improving visibility into vulnerabilities and providing expert recommendations for remediation, the product protects against damaging breaches and saves money through better preparation for compliance audits.
With an extremely comprehensive assessment of the most widely-deployed systems, Hedgehog DBscanner conducts more than 3,800 different checks of Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2 and MySQL databases. The product automatically discovers databases on a network, and then locates and identifies tables containing restricted information such as passwords, credit card details and PII.
“Info Security Products Guide’s recognition of Hedgehog DBscanner further validates our recently-announced product as a leader in vulnerability assessment and security scanning technology for databases,” said Nathan Shuchami, CEO of Sentrigo. “This award highlights the fact that DBscanner is ahead of the curve and our entire team takes great pride in being selected. Since it was announced last fall, sales of DBscanner have been above our expectations, as customers – and now the industry – recognize the hard work, dedication and thoughtful approach that has gone in to creating this product.”
