BOSTON, March 1, 2017 – DBmaestro, the pioneer and leading DevOps for database solution provider, today announced new capabilities to enforce DevOps organizational policy, by strictly monitoring and controlling the database environment. The new DevSecOps component, Policy Control Manager, eliminates the risk of exposing the database to critical errors which can lead to downtime and the loss of data.
DevSecOps integrates security measures into its automated development and deployment philosophy, as security has and will always be an integral part of the software product life cycle. DevSecOps opens the door for a more dynamic and secure way of managing infrastructure and automated deployment, maximizing risk management, prevention, flexibility, speed and time to market.
The transition to Agile development by enterprises has led to a dramatic increase in the numbers of releases and development cycles. It has also intensified the challenges of controlling, tracking and auditing changes to the application and database. While existing solutions address these needs for code, the database, which is the next major asset in the supply chain, is sometimes ignored. Dealing with the databases also provides additional complications due to the nature of its critical data, and because any downtime can prove disastrous.
DBmaestro has stood out as a leader in automating DevOps for the database and continuous integration and delivery. The new capabilities of DBmaestro’s Policy Control Manager allow DevOps and security managers to easily create a set of policies for all release packages, regardless of their source.
“Our Global 1000 customers need to enforce and audit their database changes, and our new Policy Control Manager is a game changer for them,” said Yariv Tabac, Co-Founder and CEO of DBmaestro. “We’ve seen structural changes in the databases mistakenly added during schema changes and then dropped, costing financial institutions millions of dollars in losses. These leading institutions now understand the need for a security component in their database – professionally referred to as DevSecOps – in order to complete their digital transformation. DBmaestro allows enterprises to put an automated security policy in place to define, and then automatically control who is authorized to make changes to the database, in which scenarios, and when, thus preventing unauthorized or malicious changes to the database.”
