Sentrigo Partners with GoGrid to Provide Database Security on Cloud Computing Platform

June 23, 2010 by  

Hosting ToolboxSANTA CLARA, CA – Sentrigo, Inc., the innovator in database security software, today announced that Sentrigo Hedgehog Enterprise and vPatch are now available for installation on GoGrid’s cloud computing infrastructure for database audit, protection and breach prevention. By leveraging Sentrigo’s database compliance and security solutions, organizations can implement cloud computing on GoGrid while addressing concerns regarding protection of sensitive data as well as issues related to compliance audits for key industry regulations.

As a greater number of applications move to cloud computing, organizations that manage their databases in virtual environments increase their risk of exposing highly-sensitive data to a broad base of internal and external attacks. Many organizations find it challenging to ensure compliance and protection when they have full control over the data within their own networks, let alone when deploying it in the cloud. Only Sentrigo’s host-based software approach monitors and audits data access from the inside of each database virtual server, allowing efficient operation in distributed, virtualized environments.


“The appeal of cloud computing is clear – with benefits that include reduced acquisition and operating costs for IT, greater flexibility and scalability of the infrastructure – it is not surprising that cloud technology deployments are increasing at a considerable rate,” said Slavik Markovich, CTO and co-founder of Sentrigo. “Yet, for many organizations, the critical applications that would potentially benefit most from a move to the cloud cannot be deployed without first overcoming a key obstacle – compliance with data privacy and security regulations.”

The combination of Sentrigo Hedgehog and GoGrid enables customers to deploy applications in the cloud environment, including those with sensitive data that may be subject to compliance standards – providing a layer of protection from external threats while also enabling a full audit of privileged insiders. Hedgehog provides canned compliance templates for SOX, PCI-DSS, SAS70, HIPAA, and more, that allow GoGrid users to quickly and easily satisfy regulatory requirements. As part of the combined solution, the monitoring and management console can be hosted either in the GoGrid cloud, or behind the customer’s firewall, where compliance and security events or audit reports can be sent securely over the WAN regardless of the physical location of the virtual infrastructure. By leveraging the pre-built Hedgehog images in the GoGrid Exchange, installation takes only a few minutes, and then Hedgehog begins auditing and protecting databases immediately.

“Sentrigo’s Hedgehog works well in the dynamic, distributed environment of our customer’s cloud computing infrastructure by providing full visibility into database activity regardless of where the data lies,” said John Keagy, GoGrid CEO and Co-Founder. “The combination of the Sentrigo and GoGrid technologies is a natural fit for our respective companies, and more importantly for customers looking to leverage the benefits of cloud computing technology with the assurance their data is protected by the best-in-breed database security solution currently available on the market.”
