Database compliance solution for Auditor General in Alberta

Application Security : 07 January, 2010  (Application Story)
AppDetectivePro from Application Security will be used in the Auditor General's office in Alberta to perform SRC audits, scan databases and ensure compliance
Application Security has announced that the Auditor General of Alberta has standardized on AppDetectivePro for database SRC audits. They will use AppDetectivePro's agentless database scanning technology to perform database discovery, User Rights Reviews and vulnerability assessments to increase the effectiveness of annual internal control and security audits while providing additional value to auditees.

With tens of thousands of licences shipped globally, AppDetectivePro is the de-facto standard for database SRC audits worldwide. AppDetectivePro discovers, examines, reports and proposes fixes for database security vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. The solution provides the Auditor General of Alberta with the automated audit and reporting functionality necessary to efficiently evaluate the security of government databases.

Because it is agentless, AppDetectivePro can be rapidly implemented and provide immediate benefits. The solution provides auditors, IT advisors and internal audit teams with detailed compliance reports and a comprehensive view of an organization's database asset inventory, vulnerability profile, access controls and entitlements to sensitive information.

"It is critical that we are able to efficiently evaluate whether government databases have effective security and access controls to protect the sensitive data hosted and processed by them," said Patrick Dunnigan, IT Audit Principal, Auditor General of Alberta. "After evaluating six vendors, we selected AppDetectivePro because of its market leadership, agentless software architecture, vulnerability knowledgebase, comprehensive multi-platform coverage, and its User Rights Review capabilities."

"The Auditor General of Alberta is required to annually assess and report on the internal controls and security of its auditees' IT environments," said Rob Chapdelaine, vice president, worldwide sales and distribution, Application Security. "AppDetectivePro efficiently provides a detailed database assessment, by eliminating manual processes and streamlining assessments and audits of database entitlements and vulnerabilities."
