McAfee Integrity Monitoring for Databases

McAfee Integrity Monitoring for Databases

Cost-effective database solution for evaluating and monitoring system security

Next Steps:


McAfee Integrity Monitoring for Databases tests systems for common configuration vulnerabilities, monitors changes to these settings, and helps you build a custom security policy to access your sensitive data — providing visibility into potentially dangerous configuration changes and making it easier to demonstrate compliance.

Centralized checks of database configuration settings — Integrity Monitoring for Databases is an easy-to-deploy solution for assessing the security status of the most widely-deployed database platforms (Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, and MySQL) across an enterprise, including version/patch level, audit settings, configuration parameters, and privileges.

Improved visibility into database security posture — By evaluating and monitoring database configuration settings and access to sensitive data, organizations can demonstrate compliance and minimize the likelihood of a breach.

Streamlined software upgrades — Upgrade your software easily without impacting existing operations or performance with a simple path to more advanced capabilities. You can enhance core security by adding McAfee Vulnerability Manager for Databases (with much more extensive testing of database servers) and McAfee Database Activity Monitoring (with customizable rules and intrusion prevention).
