Security technology vendor McAfee has released a free open-source plugin for MySQL database users which shows detailed activity from database audits.
The plugin features visibility into database vulnerabilities and supports databases such as Oracle, Sybase, MS-SQL and DB2. The plugin, which is available on gitHub, requires no change to the existing database or network architecture.
“McAfee developed the free database audit plug-in to give the community of MySQL users a means of building enterprise-level database security around their databases,” said Dan Sarel, vice president of Database Security Product Management at McAfee. “When coupled with the McAfee Database Activity Monitoring sensor for MySQL, the data is subject to the same real-time analysis and policy enforcement as the data collected from other supported databases.”
