greensqlInformation has become the world’s new currency. Databases are the digital banks that store and retrieve valuable information. Security threats come from many directions. Large volumes of data can be stolen in micro-seconds without even anyone being aware of it. Compromising database security will definitely lead to worst consequences for any organization. 

GreenSQL, the database security company, minimizes database security breaches for organizations employing external database administrators, consultants or developers. It keeps you informed of suspicious transactions in real time, allowing you to take immediate action to maintain database security.

External resources are used to manage databases as well as develop applications by the companies. These consultants are usually granted full or privileged database access rights to perform their tasks, such as performance management, monitoring, backup and replication and application development. This full access most often presents a high risk for many organizations who store sensitive records in their databases.

GreenSQL, the Database Security Company, delivers out-of-the-box database security solutions that address the needs of small and mid-sized organizations. Its products smoothly integrated Database Security, Monitoring and Masking functions are easy to use and are quick to implement. GreenSQL's real-time, Dynamic Data Masking allows remote data access from external sources while protecting data from unauthorized exposure by camouflaging sensitive information. Its Database Activity Monitoring (DAM) allows management to see exactly what sensitive records their external consultants have been exposed to and when and what actions they took.

With GreenSQL's security solution, companies significantly reduce development and infrastructure costs because they no longer have to build their own database security solutions. GreenSQL can be installed on a dedicated server or on a virtual machine. GreenSQL inspects both database queries and database responses making it the perfect tool to secure, monitor and mask the sensitive information stored in databases. GreenSQL's click-and-download technology is up and running very quickly, protecting data from unauthorized access and intellectual property theft. The product provides complete compliance with regulations such as SOX, HIPAA, and PCI DSS. The company’s database security solution supports Microsoft Azure, SQL Server, MySQL, and PostgreSQL database applications.

"Organizations have outsourced many IT functions to reduce costs," says Amir Sadeh, CEO, GreenSQL, "Unfortunately, that sometimes comes at the cost of security. As much as we want to trust our employees and suppliers, our experience has unfortunately shown us otherwise. External DBAs, current DBAs or former employees may steal your data because they are greedy, vengeful, or just want to see if they can 'do it.' While it sounds trite, an ounce of prevention is worth millions of dollars and your reputation in cure."

GreenSQL is a privately held company, founded in 2009 and backed by Atlantic Capital Partners, Magma Venture Capital, Rhodium, Gandyr and 2BAngels. GreenSQL is located in Tel Aviv, Israel. GreenSQL can be downloaded from their website.
