Patch and Protect Known and Unknown Vulnerabilities Without Taking Databases Offline

Fast enterprise database security without costly regression testing

Rimini Street Advanced Database Security is a next-generation database security solution, enhanced with technology from McAfee. It protects databases from known and unknown vulnerabilities by monitoring and analyzing database memory, and blocking attempted attacks using virtual patching before threats reach the database. No costly regression testing required.

Security updates without any required upgrades

Rimini Street Advanced Database Security is a next-generation database security solution, protects all releases, even those no longer fully supported by vendor, eliminating the need to upgrade only for security.

Solution Features

No regression testing

Eliminates the need for time-consuming and costly code regression testing since direct modifications to the resource being protected are not required.
