Why invest in SQL Server Security?

When migrating your workloads, applications and data to the cloud, the advantages are often clear. Security, however, can often be overlooked. DSP are here to provide the expertise to help you minimise security risks to your estate, and to understand your risk and compliance requirements as well as their implications to your applications and wider estate.
 
SQL Server databases possess a huge portion of the world’s relational data, and can therefore become targets for data theft. To avoid the compromise of any of your SQL Server databases, which could be expensive and potentially damaging, we recommend safeguarding your most valuable data with SQL Server's preventative security controls.

What security services do we offer?

Security Assessment

We offer database security assessments which identify the sensitive and personal data in your databases, assess the effectiveness of your security configuration, and can provide bespoke recommendations as to how to improve your database security posture.

Auditing and Monitoring

Using a centralised information and audit management repository, it's simple to collect, analyse, and report on database activities. You can find out which users may be displaying risky behaviour, and the location of your new sensitive data and password status.

  

Data Protection

 With capabilities such as key storage and management, regulatory needs and the management challenges posed by managing multiple keys/wallets are addressed. In addition, with data masking, SQL Server security minimises any risks by exchanging sensitive data for artificial data for use in development, test, and partner environments.

Data Access Control

Two of the most common database attacks - stolen application service accounts and compromised/rogue administrator accounts - will be mitigated by data access control. With SQL Server database security you can rely on database administration that is delineated from data administration. Multifactor authentication will also enforce access control policies based on the individual security privileges of each user.
