Server & Database Security

Database security is of utmost importance to sectors including IT, banking, finance and ecommerce. Every other transaction is based on how secure their database is, as it holds every detail including usernames, passwords, customers’ credit card information and so on.

The term “database security” denotes a series of measures initiated by the service provider to proactively protect the information and database management software from malicious threats, phishing attacks, DoS (denial-of-service) and malware. The security is achieved by using streamlined processes, automation, security tools and trained experts who work around the clock.

Different Levels of Database Security
There are different levels of securing your databases, including:

Data Level Security: The process of protecting the data itself from getting stolen or tampered with in the servers.

System Level Security: Protecting networking servers, hardware and other inbound/outbound communications from acting as a funnel to distribute malicious software.

User Level Security: A server is always attacked from a user level, which is why organizations rely on real-time protection software to monitor transactions and restrict the user from visiting unauthorized websites or downloads from untrusted sources.

Why it’s important:
  • Deployment failure
  • Excessive privileges
  • Privilege abuse
  • Platform vulnerabilities
  • Unmanaged sensitive data
  • Backup data exposure
  • Weak authentication
  • Database injection attacks


  • Database security controls
  • System hardening and monitoring
  • DBMS configuration
  • Database auditing
  • Encryption and Cryptography assessment and implementation support
  • Application security integration
