Oracle Database Firewall Certified with MySQL Enterprise Edition
By Bertrand Matthelié on Jan 10, 2012
Yesterday Oracle announced that the latest release of Oracle Database Firewall introduced support for MySQL Enterprise Edition.
To address threats like SQL injections, Oracle Database Firewall establishes a defensive perimeter around databases, while monitoring and enforcing normal application behavior in real-time to help prevent SQL injection attacks as well as unauthorized attempts to access sensitive information.
Oracle Database Firewall represents a new addition to the growing list of MySQL Enterprise Oracle Certifications.
Numerous organizations are using both the Oracle database and MySQL, typically relying on MySQL for their web-based and departmental applications. Oracle MySQL Enterprise Certifications make it easier, faster and safer for them to deploy and manage both databases within their existing environment, using the same set of tools.
According to the most recent IOUG Data Security Survey, only 36 percent of respondents have taken steps to ensure their applications are not subject to SQL injection attacks (1). Oracle Database Firewall now protects MySQL databases against data breaches without requiring any changes to existing applications, the database infrastructure or the existing operating system of the target database.
