ABSTRACT:

In a recent Research Brief, ESG analyzed the current state of database security. Based upon a survey of 179 North American-based security professionals working at organizations with over 1,000 employees, ESG found that:

  • Databases house a higher percentage of confidential data than any other type of data repository.
  • Database security depends upon too many manual processes.
  • Enterprise-class organizations aren’t diligent enough about database security.

This Research Brief categorizes databases as a “dangerous and growing security gap”, and offers steps to improve database security across the enterprise.
