SQL Injection attack mitigation tool
Many organizations offer multiple dynamic and data-driven web applications to their users. These applications are dependent on databases, which contain all an organization's business-critical and confidential data. Generally, these applications use standard SQL queries, which are formed based on user input, to communicate with the database.
An SQL injection attack is a common and deadly method of attack which threatens databases through web applications. A malicious user with sufficient knowledge of SQL can manipulate the inputs provided on the application to retrieve data they aren't supposed to have access to. Data is an organization's most valuable asset. Organizations can face serious privacy and legal implications if data is stolen via a vulnerability in their application.
While applications usually run checks on the inputs to ensure a data leak doesn't happen, sophisticated attackers may still find vulnerable points in an application. Regularly auditing the web server that hosts the applications and the database server is therefore necessary to make sure data is protected at all times. EventLog Analyzer's predefined reports and alerts make this audit and security process possible.
SQL injection attack mitigation with EventLog Analyzer
EventLog Analyzer provides out-of-the-box support for:
- Apache web servers
- IIS web servers
- Oracle database servers
- Microsoft SQL Server
Run SQL injection reports for each of these servers to look for vulnerabilities. Create alert profiles to generate real-time notifications about SQL injection attacks, sent via email or SMS. Take instant corrective measures when an alert is raised, such as shutting down the web server or blocking a user, while also checking for vulnerabilities and removing them.
Assign custom scripts to be triggered when an alert is raised. Use custom scripts to run some instant correctional measures, and focus on the more complex task of finding and removing the SQL injection vulnerability in the application.
With all of these features, EventLog Analyzer ensures that an organization's data will not fall into the wrong hands.
