Guardium, a leading provider of database security solutions, today announced that it has been named as a finalist for the 2nd Annual MITX Technology Awards. The MITX Technology Awards recognize innovative technologies developed in the New England area, as well as the individuals and organizations responsible for driving these advancements. The Massachusetts Innovation & Technology Exchange (MITX) is the region’s premier association for thought leadership, technology trends, business networking and professional training and development.

“We are extremely honored to be selected as a finalist for the MITX Award,” said Ram Metser, president and CEO of Guardium. “Our SQL Guard security and auditing solution is gaining significant momentum in the industry since it addresses a critical need for organizations by protecting corporate databases. The SQL Guard product family automates and simplifies database security, auditing, compliance (for Sarbanes-Oxley, GLBA, HIPAA and others) and identity theft prevention.”

Guardium’s SQL Guard is a network-based platform that fills key security gaps by delivering unprecedented policy-based control of intrusive access to critical enterprise databases. With continuous, real-time visibility into all access to databases, SQL Guard enables organizations to gain precise knowledge about the who, what, when and how of activity between all internal/external users and distributed relational databases. In addition, Guardium’s SQL Guard platform is enhanced by task oriented applications such as its SQL Guard Security Suite and Compliance Accelerators that enable, simplify and automate database security and auditing functions. These unique capabilities allow SQL Guard to effectively tackle critical enterprise security challenges that include database access control and enforcement, database auditing tasks and regulatory compliance initiatives.
