Vulnerability Manager for Databases – VMD

You store your most valuable and sensitive data in a database, but most vulnerability assessment products don’t know enough about database systems to thoroughly test them, putting your data at risk. Practically every week there’s yet another announcement of a major data breach. McAfee Vulnerability Manager for Databases automatically discovers databases on your network; determines if the latest patches have been applied; and tests for common weaknesses, such as weak passwords, default accounts, and others, making it easier than ever to demonstrate regulatory compliance and better protect critical data.

Database management systems are complex, introducing their own set of security risks, some of which are similar to other system software (such as patch updates, password strength, and others) and some of which are unique to databases (such as threats from SQL injection or buffer overflow exploits). McAfee Vulnerability Manager for Databases comes from the team that’s credited with contributions in seven of the last 10 critical patch updates (CPUs) that Oracle released.

It leverages the expertise of leading database security practitioners to:

  1. Identify susceptibility to database-specific risks, including SQL injection, buffer overflow, and malicious or insecure PL/SQL code
  2. Prioritise findings and highlight the ‘real’ issues needing immediate attention
  3. Provide actionable intelligence on how to address risks, including fix scripts whenever possible
  4. Allow security and compliance users with limited database knowledge to quickly understand risks to sensitive data and how to remediate them.
