Database vendors lack security

According to this article, customers are driven to 3rd-party security solutions as major database vendors don't yet meet user needs.

Analysts comment that databases are not hardened and they are still on the low end of the spectrum in terms of security. Even though their licenses cost tens of thousands of dollars, big commercial databases aren't meeting user demand for increased data security and privacy.

"While database vendors are beefing up security in their products, companies should look to third-party vendors to supplement additional requirements that are not yet met by DBMS vendors, such as database firewalls, assessment, simplified encryption and granular auditing solutions," Forrester Research Inc. analyst Noel Yuhanna wrote in a Nov. 29 report.

Vendors of database security tools include Lumigent Technologies Inc., IPLocks Inc., Guardium Inc. and Protegrity Corp.
