DataBase Security

DataBase Security

Database security refers to the collective measures used to protect and secure a database or database management software from illegitimate use and malicious threats and attacks.Database security covers and enforces security on all aspects and components of databases.

This includes:

    Data stored in database
    Database server
    Database management system (DBMS)
    Other database workflow applications

Database security is generally planned, implemented and maintained by a database administrator or by us @ Cloveinfotech.Some of the ways database security is analyzed and implemented include:

    Restricting unauthorized access and use by implementing strong and multifactor access and data management security controls like Authentication and Authorization
    Load/stress testing and capacity testing of a database to ensure it does not crash in a distributed denial of service (DDoS) attack or user overload
    Physical security of the database server and backup equipment from theft and natural disasters
    Reviewing existing system for any known or unknown vulnerabilities and defining and implementing a road map/plan to mitigate them
