Part 1: 60 Seconds to Infiltrate, Months to Discover
According to leading industry reports, 98% of breached data originates from unsecured database servers and nearly half are compromised in less than a minute! Almost all victims are not aware of a breach until a third party notifies them and nearly all breaches could have been avoided through the use of basic controls. Join (ISC)2 and Oracle on January 31, 2013 for Part 1 of our next Security Briefings series that will focus on database security and the detective, preventive, and administrative controls that can be put in place to mitigate the risk to your databases. There's no turning back the clock on stolen data, but you can put in place controls to ensure your organization won't be the next headline.
Protecting the valuable and confidential information stored within databases is vital for maintaining the integrity and reputation of organizations everywhere—not to mention ensuring regulatory compliance. However, many organizations still rely on security solutions with inherent limitations. Given the complexities of today’s database platforms and the sophistication of today’s cybercriminals, deploying a comprehensive and dedicated database security solution is a must. Here are five reasons why.
Join this in-depth discussion on enterprise database security and learn how to (1) Overcome inherent limitations of perimeter security and DBMS security features (2) Circumvent major costs and operation challenges in taking your 'reactive' database security to an optimized practice and (3) establish real-time protection and continous compliance with ZERO downtime.
There's a lot of emphasis going into tracking the customer's transaction performance through all of the factors that might slow it down. Today there is lots of emphasis on looking into the source code, looking at APIs, looking into the network, looking into the servers, VMs, and containers on-prem or in the cloud. But let's not forget an essential component that's not getting a lot of attention: databases. Customer obsession and performance management depend as much today as ever -- maybe more -- on databases. And they're not getting any simpler! Complex distributed databases like Hadoop, Cassandra, and NoSQL require monitoring and management that's very different and much more complex -- monitoring that integrates into the APM systems and analytics required to achieve customer obsession.
In this webinar, join guest speaker, Forrester Senior Analyst Milan Hanson, who will discuss the importance of customer experience, customer obsession and the technological and cultural shift this creates. Following Milan, SelectStar General Manager Mike Kelly will highlight key trends driving database monitoring and management, including how it relates to application performance.
Today, businesses leverage confidential and mission critical data that is often stored in traditional, relational databases or more modern, big data platforms. Understanding the key threats to database security and how attackers use vulnerabilities to gain access to your sensitive information is critical to deterring a database attack.
Join this webinar to learn about the latest threats and how to remediate them.
Because of its high performance, availability and scalability, Apache Casssandra has quickly become a preferred NoSQL open-source database of choice.

Gaining visibility into key metrics with the option to drill-down to root-cause issues can offer the visibility that you need to keep Cassandra operating at peak performance.
In this 30-minute webinar, SelectStar’s Mike Kelly will highlight:
· How you can optimize the performance of your nodes
· Key metrics to track within your Cassandra environment
· Top methods to optimize your Cassandra database performance
By taking advantage of load balancing, you can not only improve application performance but also the availability of your applications.
Database workloads can be challenging to run in the cloud, given smaller database instance sizes and cross-region workflows. ScaleArc’s database load balancing software makes it easier to adopt Azure for SQL Server, MySQL, or Oracle workloads. The software also improves the availability and performance of applications running on those databases.
Join this webcast to:
- Learn how to enable automatic scale-out across smaller database instances
- See how cross-region failover improves application uptime
- Find out how to deliver zero downtime maintenance

Inside or outside, which is better? You know that embedding analytics in databases offer several benefits including security, performance, and enabling users to take advantage of the analytics more readily. But how do you do it?
In this installment of our embedded analytics series we discuss embedding analytics using stored external procedures – an option provided by all major commercial RDBMS providers. These procedures are invoked in the same manner as internal stored SQL procedures but they run in a process space separate from that of the database itself. This separation can be advantageous in certain scenarios. In particular, if a data set is selected for analysis that pushes the limits of physical memory then the database is isolated from any issues that arise in running the analytics on this problematic data.
In this webinar, you will see detailed steps on how to implement the analytics as a shared library using IMSL Libraries for C for illustration.
