Navis Deploys DB Networks to Improve Management of Global Infrastructure

DB Networks' Continuous Monitoring and Behavioral Analysis Enables Navis to Discover and Consolidate Databases for Improved Efficiencies and Reduced Costs of Operations

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/13/14 -- DB Networks, an innovator of behavioral analysis in database security, today announced that Navis has deployed its IDS-6300 intelligent security appliance to continuously monitor its infrastructure for development and support of industry-leading Terminal Operating Systems (TOS) solutions, delivering improved infrastructure management which includes discovery and consolidation of database servers.

For more than 25 years, Navis has provided the global technology standard for managing the movement of cargo through terminals. The Navis N4 TOS optimizes operations, unlocking operational efficiency, productivity and visibility for terminal operators. Navis combines industry best practices with innovative technology and world-class services that enable marine terminal operators worldwide to maximize performance with reduced risk. Whether tracking cargo through a port, automating equipment or process operations, or managing multiple terminals through an integrated, centralized solution, Navis provides a holistic approach to operational optimization.

"DB Networks' database discovery capability is the most robust solution of all those we investigated, and now we have much deeper visibility into our database infrastructure and transactions than previously possible," said Dave McCandless, Vice President IT at Navis. "The DB Networks appliance also operates with complete transparency at the application layer -- it is not seen and not heard -- which is a significant benefit to our consistency in service delivery. Navis is very interested in innovative solutions such as this Core IDS that we can confidently recommend to our end customers to improve the quality of their terminal operations."

Leveraging DB Networks' unique technology, Navis has discovered what its SQL traffic patterns are, and has consolidated underutilized database servers to improve operations and increase savings. According to McCandless, fewer underutilized servers and inactive databases means savings in areas such as servers, storage, networking, rack space, software licensing, air conditioning, power, and more. McCandless also now has visibility into the SQL traffic being generated by the applications on his network and can now immediately detect rogue SQL activity, he said.

"Navis provides a great use case on leveraging the power of DB Networks for new applications, and we are excited to work with them to deploy continuous monitoring for database optimization," said Brett Helm, Chairman and CEO of DB Networks. "Customers are often coming up with new ways to leverage the unique combination of database network continuous monitoring and behavioral modeling to identify SQL injection that only DB Networks can deliver."

DB Networks' IDS-6300 intelligent security appliance is the industry's first next-generation Core Intrusion Detection System (IDS). The IDS-6300 leverages patented behavioral analysis technology for comprehensive SQL injection intrusion detection -- uniquely addressing SQL injection issues that have plagued the industry for more than 15 years. DB Networks' intelligent security appliance delivers advanced and Zero-Day SQL injection attack detection with the industry's first Core IDS that combines behavioral analysis and advanced continuous database monitoring, addressing specific compliance requirements within regulations such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, GLBA, and NIST spec 800-53.

For a personal demonstration of the DB Networks IDS-6300 next-generation Core IDS and the opportunity to meet with members of the team, visit us at the 2014 RSA Conference, being held in the Moscone Center in San Francisco from Feb 24 - 28, in DB Networks' Booth # 901 in the South Hall.

About DB Networks
DB Networks is innovating behavioral analysis technology in the field of database security. Developed for organizations that need to protect their data from advanced attacks, including Zero-Day attacks, DB Networks offers effective countermeasures against SQL injection and database Denial of Service attacks. Database attacks happen rapidly -- in a matter of minutes -- and bypass traditional perimeter security measures. DB Networks' unique approach uses behavioral analysis technology to automatically learn each application's proper SQL statement behavior. Any SQL statement dispatched from the application that deviates from the established behavioral model immediately raises an alarm as a possible attack. DB Networks is a privately held company headquartered in San Diego, Calif. For more information, see http://www.dbnetworks.com, or call (800) 598-0450.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
