PowerBroker Privilege Management for Databases

PowerBroker for Databases lets database administrators and architects effectively control privileged entitlements across their heterogeneous database systems.

Stronger Privilege Controls for Your Database Estate.

The majority of today’s data breaches occur through direct, privileged access to the database systems themselves. To effectively mitigate the risk posed by these breaches, while at the same time meeting compliance standards requires a solution that controls the privileged access to these database systems.

PowerBroker for Databases provides a complete database security and compliance solution by addressing the threats posted by over-privileged users. It includes capabilities for the entire credential life cycle including; credential discovery, management, fine-grained privilege delegation, privileged user activity monitoring, closed loop activity reconciliation, and automated compliance reporting.
