Database Security Assessment
Database security assessment is a process that fundamentally measures the database risk at any given point. It is used to measure the database vulnerability and evaluate the database’s susceptibility measure; this involves penetration tests on the database.
Databases form the core and vital component for organizations. All secure and private information is part of the database. Securing the database is as important as securing the organization system and networks.
It forms a core component of defining the right access and privileges to use the database. Unrestricted access and loop-holes in the existing access controls of databases can reveal a lot of private and confidential information.
Database vulnerability listings and thorough assessment helps to transparently scan the database for known vulnerabilities and against security standards and compliance.
TechForing provides you with a complete and comprehensive database security assessment, which lets you secure your database against all vulnerabilities.

- Backups – We help you archive required data and do regular backups.
- Sensitive Information – We aide you in identifying sensitive information pertaining to your database.
- Identify Security Risk – Potential risks related to unexpected activity in the database are identified, and any misuse by authorized users, administrators, or intruders. We identify unauthorized access to sensitive data, metadata, functions in the database, or sudden unpredictable changes to programs & structures within database and/or security configurations.
- Malware Infection – Detect malware infections which can lead to unauthorized access and disclosure of personal or business related data. We detect causes for sudden deletion or damage of data, interrupted or denial of access to the database, attacks on other systems, and failure of database services without reason.
- Performance – We analyze the performance of a given database, checking on the overloads and any resulting capacity issues which may in turn not allow authorized users access to the database as intended.
- Physical Damage Recovery – Physical damage of database servers can occur due to various reasons like – floods, overheating, electronic breakdowns, etc. To maintain business continuity, it is essential to manage some kind of an HADR (High Availability Disaster Recovery) backup. Based on your infrastructure, we create the best database recovery mechanism for you.
- Data corruption – We help you identify data corruption or loss caused due to invalid data commands, mistakes in database or system administration process.
