GreenSQL, the leader in unified database security solutions, announced today the availability of a software-based database security solution for Amazon Web Services (AWS). GreenSQL for AWS is a powerful “database firewall” and compliance solution that adds security and auditing functionality to databases running on AWS.

GreenSQL helps protect customers from SQL injection attacks and enables organizations to secure sensitive information (e.g., SSNs, credit card numbers, e-mails and passwords) from unauthorized database access, enforce separation-of-duties, mask sensitive data, monitor and audit data access and meet regulatory compliance requirements, such as PCI and HIPAA. Installed as a front-end to the cloud database, the GreenSQL solution fully camouflages and secures database applications and the data they maintain.

“We architected the GreenSQL database security solution to give customers additional layers of security for their databases running on AWS. We deliver comprehensive real-time interception of malicious and inadvertent threats, while also allowing developers and contractors to perform their duties without ever gaining access to sensitive or protected information,” said Amir Sadeh, CEO of GreenSQL. “Unique features such as automatic sensitive data discovery, dynamic data masking, column-based access control and built-in compliance reports further protect the organization’s data assets while easing separation-of-duties enforcement and regulatory compliance.”

“We’re excited to welcome GreenSQL into the AWS Marketplace,” said Terry Hanold, Vice President, Cloud Commerce, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “By offering their software via subscription on the AWS Marketplace, GreenSQL gives customers an easy way to manage their database security.”

“GreenSQL’s family of unified database security solutions not only allows us to comprehensively protect our most sensitive data, it also ensures we are in compliance with all necessary regulatory standards,” said Daniel Kushner, CEO of Oktopost. “The solutions are easy to use and can quickly scale to meet our needs. With GreenSQL we are confident that our data will remain protected as it is a proven solution with a solid team behind it."

Now available for AWS customers, GreenSQL’s unified software approach provides database security, Database Activity Monitoring (DAM), and dynamic data masking in one comprehensive solution that addresses numerous database security needs. This unique solution inspects every command sent to the cloud database in real-time, regardless of the source of the request, allowing organizations to protect their sensitive data from possible insider threats: employees, business partners and contractors. GreenSQL, which can be up and running in less than an hour, acts as a reverse proxy between applications and AWS databases. All client applications are supported and no software installation is required on the AWS side.
