IT security professionals evaluating various database security solutions will see a slew of benefit statements and favorable pricing, all in an effort to influence a purchase decision toward a specific solution.  Nevertheless, by paying close attention to the features in six key capabilities, decision-makers can calculate the hidden cost of any such solution in three critical areas: Staff, Hardware, and Risk Mitigation.  Once these hidden costs are calculated, line-of-business and IT executives will see a wide disparity between database security offerings from which the solution with the largest organizational value and lowest total cost of ownership may be selected.

In this webinar, we will provide a framework to calculate the financial impact of any database security solution, and evaluate the attributes and features:

  • Tool monitoring and configuration management
  • Reporting capabilities
  • Solution administration and management
  • APIs and integration methods
  • Architecture
  • Alerts, policies, and audit reports
