GreenSQL Joins Cloud Security Alliance

GreenSQL, the leader in database security and compliance solutions for the cloud, today announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA), a not-for-profit organization with a mission to promote the use of best practices for providing security assurance within Cloud Computing, and to provide education on the uses of Cloud Computing to help secure all other forms of computing. GreenSQL is a powerful “database firewall” and compliance solution that adds important security and auditing functionality to cloud-hosted and on-premises databases.

GreenSQL helps protect customers from SQL injection attacks and enables organizations to secure sensitive information (e.g., SSNs, credit card numbers, e-mails and passwords) from unauthorized database access, enforce separation-of-duties, mask sensitive data, monitor and audit data access and meet regulatory compliance requirements. Installed as a front-end to the cloud database, the GreenSQL solution fully camouflages and secures database applications and the data they maintain. Furthermore, GreenSQL’s Database Activity Monitoring (DAM) is a powerful solution that independently monitors and audits all database activity across both cloud and traditional database platforms. Using administrative access, it is easy to define audit trail policy for all sensitive tables and/or columns, and see a “before and after” view of all changes made.

“GreenSQL brings to the CSA a fast, efficient and powerful security and compliance solution that helps companies implement best practices around the databases they host on Amazon AWS, Google Cloud Platform, SoftLayer, Microsoft Azure and many others,” said Amir Sadeh, CEO of GreenSQL. “Our software provides real-time interception of malicious and inadvertent threats, while also allowing developers and contractors to perform their duties without ever gaining access to sensitive or protected information.”

“We are pleased to welcome GreenSQL into the Cloud Security Alliance,” said Jim Reavis, CEO, Cloud Security Alliance. “GreenSQL’s offering is particularly well-aligned with the CSA’s mission to promote the use of security best practices in Cloud Computing environments. We look forward to a long and mutually beneficial relationship.”

Available now for enterprise databases running on a wide variety of cloud hosting providers, including most recently Amazon Web Services, GreenSQL’s unified software approach provides database security, Database Activity Monitoring (DAM), and dynamic data masking in one comprehensive solution, addressing numerous database security needs. Unique features such as automatic sensitive data discovery, dynamic data masking, column-based access control and built-in compliance reports further protect the organization’s data assets while easing separation-of-duties enforcement and regulatory compliance.
