McAfee Virtual Patching for Databases shields databases from the risk presented by unpatched vulnerabilities by detecting and preventing attempted attacks and intrusions in real time, without requiring database downtime or application testing. With Virtual Patching for Databases, organizations secure protection from threats even if they have not yet installed a vendor-released patch to deal with a known vulnerability.
ePolicy Orchestrator (ePO) Integration — McAfee Virtual Patching for Databases can be directly managed with the ePO platform, providing centralized reporting and summary information for thousands of databases in a single, consistent dashboard.
Security for older versions of database management systems — Protect older versions of database management systems, even those no longer supported by the vendor. For applications running on older versions of the database where patches are no longer provided, Virtual Patching for Databases can protect the systems from attacks, helping to satisfy governance requirements.
Uninterrupted protection for production databases — Installation is nonintrusive, as the sensor is read-only, installs as a user process, and makes no changes to the database management system software. Only minimal testing of applications is necessary.
No database downtime required — Implement patch protection without having to take down databases during installation.
Safeguard databases with virtual patches. McAfee host-based software uses a small, nonintrusive sensor on each database server to detect and prevent attempted exploits of vulnerabilities.
Trust continuous research of the evolving threat landscape to provide timely patch updates that keep organizations protected despite the changing nature of attack vectors.
Meet compliance standards, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, and other corporate governance rules.
Save time with less frequent patches, reducing the effort required for application regression testing and physical patch installation.
McAfee Virtual Patching for Databases is integrated with the ePO software to provide a single pane, unified management platform for database security and other solutions.
These are minimum system requirements only. Actual requirements will vary depending on the nature of your environment.
