McAfee Virtual Patching for Databases shields databases from the risk presented by unpatched vulnerabilities by detecting and preventing attempted attacks and intrusions in real time, without requiring database downtime or application testing. With Virtual Patching for Databases, organizations secure protection from threats even if they have not yet installed a vendor-released patch to deal with a known vulnerability.
Security for older versions of database management systems Protect older versions of database management systems, even those no longer supported by the vendor. For applications running on older versions of the database where patches are no longer provided, Virtual Patching for Databases can protect the systems from attacks, helping to satisfy governance requirements.
Uninterrupted protection for production databases Installation is nonintrusive, as the sensor is read-only, installs as a user process, and makes no changes to the database management system software. Only minimal testing of applications is necessary.
No database downtime required Implement patch protection without having to take down databases during installation.
Facilitate compliance by keeping systems up to date Meet compliance standards, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, SOX, and other corporate governance rules.
