DB Networks Introduces Industry's First Behavioral Analysis-Based
Core IDS to Detect Advanced and Zero-Day SQL Injection Attacks
IDS-6300 Leverages New Technology
Approaches of Behavioral Analysis and Continuous Threat Monitoring to
Identify Highly Obfuscated Attacks and Protect Organizations' Databases
SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Oct 23, 2013) - DB Networks, an innovator of behavioral analysis in database security, today introduced the IDS-6300 intelligent security appliance, the industry's first next-generation Core Intrusion Detection System (IDS). The IDS-6300 leverages patented behavioral analysis technology for comprehensive SQL injection intrusion detection and defense -- uniquely addressing SQL injection issues that have
plagued the industry for more than 15 years. DB Networks' intelligent
security appliance delivers advanced and Zero-Day SQL injection attack
detection with the industry's first Core IDS that combines behavioral
analysis and advanced continuous database monitoring, addressing
specific compliance requirements within regulations such as PCI DSS,
HIPAA, GLBA, and NIST spec 800-53.
SQL injection attacks remain an unsolved threat to enterprise
databases and their critical information stored at the core of the
network. The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) continues to
rank SQL injection attacks at the top of its 10 most critical web
application risks. Current techniques using signatures and black listing
require time-consuming and error-prone manual updating, and are not
effective against database hackers who obfuscate their SQL injection
using Advanced Evasion Techniques (AET) to conceal their attacks. DB
Networks is a pioneer in applying behavioral analysis to identify rogue
SQL statements, and today's launch marks the industry's first IDS using
behavioral analysis in the database tier.
"The way the DB Networks technology analyzes transactions is
fundamentally different than a signature based technology so the
capacity to identify an anomaly is significantly higher with greater
accuracy against false positives," said David Monahan, Research Director
of Security and Risk Management, Enterprise Management Associates, Inc.
In addition to delivering the industry's most accurate SQL
injection attack detection, DB Networks' new Core IDS solution's
continuous monitoring also adds the unique benefit of database discovery
for organizations. Also, its ability to parse and analyze SQL
statements offers organizations unique insight into the SQL statements
being created by their applications. Coding issues are rapidly
identified and traced to their source where they can be remediated.
The IDS-6300 works passively in the core of the IT
infrastructure and is operationally transparent. It creates multiple
unique models of how an application creates the SQL statements that it
sends to the database. All SQL statements are evaluated against these
models for proper behavior. Any SQL statement that deviates from these
unique models causes the system to alarm in real-time. The behavioral
learning and model creation is automated, making it much faster and more
accurate than manually generated signatures or the tuning of signatures
to suppress false alarms. The IDS-6300 typically takes a day or two to
establish all learning and models, while other solutions can take a
month or more.
"DB Networks has responded to customer demand to deliver the
IDS-6300, building off our pioneering innovations around behavioral
analysis at the database tier," said Brett Helm, CEO of DB Networks.
"Today's launch addresses an unmet need in the industry to identify
obfuscated weaponized SQL injection attacks, and is a requirement for
organizations to have real-time evaluation of the situation."
The new solution is delivered in an easy-to-install
intelligent security appliance, which is installed on the network
connecting the application server to the database server. Typical set up
takes less than an hour, and the solution works non-obtrusively off a
network tap and doesn't interfere with existing security infrastructure.
Availability and Pricing
The DB Networks IDS-6300 intelligent security appliance
is available today from DB Networks and from authorized resellers. For
more information, see www.dbnetworks.com/products/IDS-6300.htm. Pricing starts at $25,000 and goes up depending on capacity needs, with volume discounts available.
About DB Networks
DB Networks is an innovating behavioral analysis
technology provider in the field of database security. Developed for
organizations that need to protect their data from advanced attacks,
including Zero-Day attacks, DB Networks offers effective countermeasures
against SQL injection and database Denial of Service attacks. Database
attacks happen rapidly -- in a matter of minutes -- and bypass
traditional perimeter security measures. DB Networks' unique approach
uses behavioral analysis technology to automatically learn each
application's proper SQL statement behavior. Any SQL statement
dispatched from the application that deviates from the established
behavioral model immediately raises an alarm as a possible attack. DB
