Database Security in Virtualization and Cloud Computing Environments

Apr 09, 2010

Download Cloud Computing and Virtual Datacenters present unique challenges when it comes to securing sensitive data.��The benefits of these new architectures are clear, including: the ability to share resources through server consolidation, quickly scale up (and down) capacity based on changing needs, and to flexibly update servers without impacting production.

Less hardware can lower costs, and even mean a greener datacenter. However, the combination of dynamic system resources, complex network topology, and lack of control over privileged users, means that the way you implement database security is critical to meeting regulatory requirements.

In this technical whitepaper, you'll learn:
• The 3 Technology Challenges when protecting data in virtual environments
• What to look for in a Database Activity Monitoring solution for public / private clouds
• How a distributed monitoring architecture best fits these modern IT environments
