Imperva has announced additions to its database activity monitoring tool and released a free vulnerability scanner.

According to the company, it has now added capabilities to the SecureSphere Database Activity Monitoring solution to protect data warehouses and to meet the demands of large and distributed data centres. Version 9.5 now includes support for Oracle Exadata and extends support for Teradata Database and Sybase IQ.

Imperva has also launched Scuba 2.0, a free database vulnerability scanner that scans enterprise databases for security vulnerabilities and configuration flaws, including patch levels. The company said that reports provide actionable information to immediately reduce risk, and regular updates ensure Scuba keeps pace with new threats.

Amichai Shulman, CTO at Imperva, said: “Securing the information stored in data warehouses is essential because they integrate key business information from multiple sources. For organisations just getting started with database security, Scuba by Imperva is an excellent first step toward reducing database vulnerabilities.”
