QinetiQ and Secerno, the technology leader in data security, have announced a partnership to offer active database control as a managed service to government departments and defence companies. The partnership will see QinetiQ market Secerno products to provide protection against threats that cause data to be lost or compromised.
QinetiQ will enhance its current database monitoring and analysis activities with Secerno DataWall™ which identifies every attack, leak, threat and accidental misuse of data. The technology will also allow QinetiQ to offer database policy enforcement, compliance and auditing by accurately logging, alerting, substituting or blocking every query on its way to the database without blocking legitimate business transactions.
Richard Franklin, Director of Digital Security at QinetiQ, said: "Partnerships are key to the way we work and we believe combining our skills and technology with carefully chosen companies like Secerno is of great benefit to our customers. This partnership with the market-leader in database security will enable us to provide an even better service to our customers achieved by a more proactive approach to database security."
Steve Hurn, CEO of Secerno added: "We are delighted to be working with QinetiQ as they have vast experience in the government market and a history for innovation and technology leadership. We will be working closely to provide advanced comprehensive and intelligent database security solutions to new markets, including energy and environment."
QinetiQ's Managed Intrusion Detection Service integrates with a wide range of different security devices and technologies to provide expert monitoring, management and alerting in real time, 24/7. Its proactive identification of emerging vulnerabilities allows prompt mitigating action.
