One of the challenges in database security and access control is ensuring compliance with regulations like PCI, GDPR, FERPA, GLBA, HIPAA, FISMA, and SOX. There may also be a need to implement SOD. The good news is you don’t need to invest in multiple database security tools by using a centralized solution like DBHawk. It aids in data masking and auditing whether you’re using SQL or NoSQL databases on-premise or in the cloud, and it allows you to provide data access to your own users and authorized customers. Here are some of the features that ensure utmost security for your data:

Centralized DAM

DBHawk has the database security tools your organization requires for centralized server-based database activity monitoring (DAM). The web-based architecture ensures secure central access by logging all user activities, including SQL and user authentication. Auditing capabilities provide complete visibility over data access. DBHawk also logs wrong login attempts, IP addresses, SQL queries, user IDs, login times, and database usernames.

Secure sign-in

Single Sign-On integration with Okta allows secure access to a hybrid database and databases hosted on-premise or in the cloud. Database users can log in without sharing login credentials. DBHawk supports two-factor authentication, LDAP integration, and SSL for more security without exposing database passwords. User accounts are supported with active/inactive status and password expiration to enable time-sensitive access. Users can also securely share SQL snippets and dashboards with an expiration date and password protection.

Dynamic data masking

DBHawk has database security tools to support dynamic data masking based on predefined policies. For instance, central policy management allows administrators to give access only to the necessary data for end-users. It eliminates the need to create a separate database while ensuring GDPR protection.

Object access control

Database object access control eliminates the need for admins and users to rely on database roles and permissions. Users can access data securely without compromising database permission and security.

Support for third-party log and metrics management software

DBHawk is one of the trusted database security tools that support software like Sumologic and Splunk. It can share the log files to those platforms to continuously detect anomalies, monitor data access, and respond to external and internal attacks.
