Entercept locks out database hackers

Entercept Security Technologies has unveiled Entercept Database Edition, a host-based intrusion prevention product, to keep out hackers.

The software envelops and isolates databases within its own protective layer to identify unauthorised access attempts or alteration of stored data, enforce correct behaviour, and thwart any abnormal activity from affecting performance, said Entercept chief executive officer and president Lou Ryan.

Among the chief features of Database Enterprise Edition is its ability to block SQL queries or "injections". Through an SQL injection, a hacker could retrieve, alter, or control critical information. The popular technique can also allow a perpetrator to create a back door within an application or leave behind a Trojan horse program for future activation.

Prices for Entercept Database Edition start at $2,995 (£1,940).
