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.
