Products Awarded on GSA to Help Government Sector Secure Databases; Adhere to DISA and FISMA Security Controls, Continuous Monitoring Mandates

AppSecInc’s product line is the most broadly deployed database security solution in the government sector, said Michael Shrader, Vice President of Innovative Solutions at Carahsoft.

Application Security, Inc. (AppSecInc), the leading provider of database security solutions for the enterprise, and Carahsoft Technology Corp., the trusted government IT solutions provider, today announced a partnership through which the companies will make AppSecInc’s industry-leading database security software and services available to the public sector via Carahsoft’s GSA schedule.

“In an effort to improve efficiency and deliver additional value to our public sector business and channel partners, we have named Carahsoft Technology as our U.S. government master aggregator,” said Neil Herron, Vice President of Federal Sales, AppSecInc. “We look forward to leveraging Carahsoft’s proven government expertise, its proactive sales and marketing activities, and its extensive ecosystem of partners to further increase demand for our solutions.”

AppSecInc products allow organizations to cost-effectively meet regulatory mandates and secure sensitive data. They help organizations understand their database ecosystem, focus on suspicious and unauthorized database activity and streamline operations through a unique approach called precision database activity monitoring.

“AppSecInc’s product line is the most broadly deployed database security solution in the government sector,” said Michael Shrader, Vice President of Innovative Solutions at Carahsoft. “The award-winning technology empowers agencies to assess, monitor and protect their most critical database assets in real time, while simplifying audits, monitoring risk, and automating compliance requirements. We are excited to expand our portfolio of cyber security solutions with their award-winning technology and to make it available to our partners and customers.”

AppSecInc's database security platform, DbProtect, helps organizations gain control of their database processes to cost-effectively meet regulatory mandates and secure sensitive data. DbProtect integrates automated database discovery and asset management, vulnerability management, database activity monitoring, audit and threat management, active threat response, policy management, and reporting and analytics to enable proactive remediation of vulnerabilities and the implementation of compensating controls for issues that cannot be immediately fixed. DbProtect scales easily to address the needs of small to medium-sized organizations as well as large enterprises and government agencies.

AppDetectivePro is a database scanning and vulnerability assessment solution used by corporate auditors, IT advisors, and Federal Government Office of Inspector Generals (OIGs) to audit and assess database security issues. IT auditors and advisors, regardless of skill level, can perform easy and repeatable database security assessments, capture all results for manual control checks, and generate compliance reports.

AppSecInc has a strong presence within U.S. Federal Government Agencies that deploy AppDetectivePro or DbProtect to meet their database security and compliance requirements. AppSecInc's presence within the Inspector General community creates substantial demand for DbProtect and AppDetectivePro from line organizations subject to database security audits. DbProtect demand is also driven by government agencies looking to adhere to Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Continuous Monitoring mandates.

In December 2011, AppSecInc's DbProtect, received a Certificate of Networthiness (CoN) from the U.S. Army, approving its use in the Army Enterprise Infrastructure (AEI) and in earlier this month the U.S. Air Force once again selected AppDetectivePro and DbProtect as the database security cornerstones for its Software Assurance Center of Excellence (ASACoE).

AppSecInc’s products are available on Carahsoft GSA Schedule GS-35F-0119Y.
