Best Database Security Software

Database security tools are used by businesses to ensure the data stored within a database is secure and used properly. Many tools provide additional features for database activity monitoring to track actions and ensure only permitted parties have access to sensitive data. Database assessment and security testing features are also common. These help to maintain security standards and simulate potential threats. Encryption is the last common feature among these products. They will ensure data is not usable in the case a leak or hack occurs. These tools can secure on-premise, cloud, or hybrid databases, but may vary depending on the offering. Businesses choose to use these tools to add an extra layer of information security for their data.

There are overlaps between database security tools and other data security software solutions, but these tools are designed specifically to secure databases.

To qualify for inclusion in the Database Security category, a product must:

  • Integrate with on-premise, cloud, or hybrid databases
  • Enforce database access control policies
  • Encrypt data at rest
  • Monitor or record database activity
