The common factor in today’s global economy where most of the business is done electronically via B2B [Business to Business] or via B2C [business to consumer] or other more traditional methods’ is electronic transfer and storage of data. This very electronic data is the organization main information assets. A compromise of this data could knock the business out or delay in the processing this data could lead to customer satisfaction issues and loss of market share.

No matter how we look into this conundrum, it is utmost important from the viewpoint of the custodian of that electronic data to have it in a secure form that is readily accessible to the applications that are authorized to access and manipulate it.

Compliance with Regulation

In many countries, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act requires companies to notify consumers of their privacy policies and to provide opt-out provisions for consumers who do not want their personal information distributed beyond the company. In addition, the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act protects nonpublic financial data. Data stored on a computer that has even a remote possibility of containing information such as social security numbers, credit card and financial account numbers, account balances, and investment portfolio information must be protected.

The use and disclosure of patient medical information originally was protected by a patchwork of many laws, leaving gaps in the protection of patients’ privacy and confidentiality.

In the last several years, there has been a substantial growth in cyber crimes. Now days more and more hacker are targeting enterprise applications and database servers. Most large organizations have already installed antivirus software, firewalls and even intrusion detection systems (IDSs) to protect their networks and host operating systems, but fail to give proper attention to enterprise database servers, on the assumption that they are protected by firewalls and other defenses at the network perimeter. Yet these databases are the major reason enterprises invest in IT in the first place, and the data they contain are often the enterprise’s most valuable assets. Indeed, an enterprise without database security is like a bank with locks on the doors and armed guards by every entrance, but no vault.
