Why Read This Report

Enterprise databases continue to experience growing attacks despite enhanced security processes and increasing database security approaches. Security gaps in solutions persist in intelligent prevention, tighter integration with middleware and applications, and security patch automation. Forrester forecasts the database security market to grow at approximately 20% annually through 2014, with leading database management system (DBMS) vendors such as IBM, Microsoft, Oracle, and Sybase further extending database security, while independent vendors such as Application Security, Fortinet, Imperva, McAfee, and Vormetric concentrate on filling gaps. Forrester expects the standalone database security market to continue, even as it starts to integrate with broader information security frameworks as well as the security information and event management (SIEM), intrusion detection and prevention (IDP), and data leak prevention (DLP) markets. Application, database, and security professionals should ensure that they have an enterprisewide database security strategy for all sensitive databases.
