The security of databases is fundamental to an organization. IPLocks delivers an automated
database and security and compliance solution to protect business critical information for
enterprise computing environments. Our strategy is to focus on database information security
and management by providing a comprehensive monitoring, and auditing
solution that addresses database security issues.
The IPLocks Database Security and Compliance Solution utilizes processes and technology to
reduce inherent risk to business critical data that can be misappropriated. IPLocks safeguards
sensitive data while creating a unique information risk management solution for enterprise customers.
The technology components that form the two pillars of the IPLocks Solution include
standard enterprise-class product
IPLocks Database Security & Compliance providing:
- Auditing and Analysis
The IPLocks Solution proactively monitors data
users, sessions and objects, and allows forensic auditing of logs.
The information risk management process, as shown below, is a continuous feedback loop of
Plan and Assess, Design, Implement and Review. During the planning and design phase, an enterprise
identifies its security risks by assessing the business requirements and pertinent information that
need to be secured. For example, routine marketing data generally does not require the same level of
security that sensitive customer information requires. Once an enterprise identifies its hierarchy of
requirements, it can then create the policies and procedures in its system to adequately safeguard
this information. Regular feedback and periodic review of these policies refines and improves the
process and security measures already in place.
When computers are networked to other information repositories outside the enterprise, vast
amounts of business intelligence become available. These information repositories represent
considerable value and are an attractive target for employees and non-employees who wish to
profit at the expense of others.

The IPLocks Database Security and Compliance Solution, as shown below, is an external,
