Database Activity Monitoring
Monitor and Mitigate Critical Data Security and Privacy Risks
Cyral’s multicloud Database Activity Monitoring solution provides centralized and consistent security across a variety of relational, NoSQL, object (blob) store databases, and data lakes. Manage database user privileges, monitor user behavior with data, and provide database activity logs and approval audits.
Why is Multicloud DAM Important?
According to Gartner:
“Multicloud DAM functionality is critical to enforce privacy and data security policies that will enable regulatory compliance with data protection and privacy laws. By monitoring and auditing user activity to data, it helps prevent malicious activity, and manages appropriate business use of data, as well as the audit records that will be essential for incident responses.”
