Newly Released STIGs Validate DB Networks DBN-6300 Meets Security Requirements for use on Department of Defense (DoD) Networks -- DBN-6300 is the first artificial intelligence based database security solution to have a published STIG
SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Oct 26, 2017 -- DB Networks®, a pioneer in Artificial Intelligence (AI) based database security, today announced that the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) Risk Management Executive has released the DBN-6300 Security Technical Implementation Guide (STIG), Version 1 for immediate use.
DB Networks is committed to offering easily deployed and highly accurate artificial intelligence for identifying both insider threats and external database attacks. The DBN-6300 operates non-intrusively on a network TAP where it processes a copy of the database traffic. Deep protocol analysis is applied to the captured packets to discover all database instances, map the databases to their connected applications, and gather database user behavior analytics (UBA). Statistical analysis and artificial intelligence are then used to identify insider threats and database attacks that were previously opaque to the security operations center (SOC). Security analysts now have visibility and improved operational intelligence regarding their databases, and will be immediately notified when important database events occur.
A STIG is a set of rules, checklists, and best practices created by DISA to ensure compliance with Department of Defense (DOD)-mandated security requirements. The security requirements are derived from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53 and other related documents. The DBN-6300 complies with these rigorous security requirements set forth in the STIG. The STIG is a package of two STIGs, which together assess the security posture of the device management, backplane, and traffic inspection functions of the DBN-6300 database security appliance.
"DISA's release of the DBN-6300 STIG enables U.S. government departments and agencies using DoD networks to utilize our database security platform within their architecture," said DB Networks’ Chairman and CEO Brett Helm. “Security professionals can rest assured that the DBN-6300 has been validated to comply with the exacting security requirements defined by DISA.”
