Database servers are the most important servers your company owns. They store all the most critical company assets include client details, financial information, human resource details, product designs and more - all the data that keeps your company in business and, as such, they need to be secure. According to one recent Forrester study, 80 percent of data security breaches involve insiders, employees or those with internal access to an organization, putting information at risk. The big challenge for companies today – particularly as email and the Internet make sharing and distributing corporate information easier than ever - is to strike the right balance between providing workers with appropriate access and protecting sensitive information as much as possible.
