Excentium takes database security and compliance assessment service

Application Security : 21 October, 2009  (Application Story)
Application Security is supplying AppDetectivePro to Excentium for database compliance, risk and security assessment purposes
Application Security has announced that Excentium, an information assurance (IA) provider and external auditor of commercial and Federal IT systems, has selected Application Security's AppDetectivePro as its preferred database audit solution. Using AppDetectivePro Excentium provides IT audit services to assess database compliance against commercial and Department of Defence (DoD) regulations.

The addition of yet another independent auditing firm selecting AppDetectivePro as a standard database assessment tool further enhances Application Security's position as the dominant provider of database security, risk and compliance solutions for the IT audit and advisor community.

Excentium makes use of the powerful capabilities of Application Security's AppDetectivePro solution to audit enterprise databases against regulatory mandates like the DISA STIG's, which establish database certification and accreditation for the DoD. In addition to conducting comprehensive information assurance and database vulnerability assessments, Excentium leverages AppDetectivePro's new User Rights Review (URR) functionality to provide detailed analysis of user entitlements to data, including role inheritance, privileges, and rights to sensitive information.

"AppDetectivePro speeds segregation of duty and user entitlement audits by automating key tasks. This functionality is unique in the market, and allows us to deliver results faster and offer a more complete service to our clients. It's a key reason why we selected Application Security," said Colin Corlett, president and CEO, Excentium.

AppDetectivePro helps Excentium conduct audits that map directly to stringent compliance requirements such as SOX, PCI, HIPPA and the DISA STIG. The foundation of AppDetectivePro 6.0 is the knowledgebase and rules developed by Team Shatter, Application Security's industry recognized threat research organization. This knowledgebase represents the industry's largest and most comprehensive collection of known database vulnerabilities and remediation best practices - a feature that has made AppDetectivePro the de facto database vulnerability assessment solution for years.
