What is Trustwave DbProtect?

Trustwave DbProtect is a security platform designed for consistent monitoring and management of enterprise databases within the data center.

Built on a centrally managed and distributed architecture, DbProtect uncovers database weaknesses. This includes configuration mistakes, identification and access control issues, missing patches, or any toxic combination of settings that could lead to escalation of privileges attacks, data leakage, denial-of-service (DoS), or unauthorized modification of data held within data stores – both relational databases and big data stores.

Trustwave DbProtect was previously known as Application Security DbProtect.

Simple to set up and above average on scalability and stability
Pros and Cons
  • "Transfer and vulnerability scanning are the most valuable features of this product."
  • "The product does not have encryption or data masking."

What is our primary use case?

I use this solution with several models, including activity monitoring, looking at what communication is going to or from our database, vulnerability scanning when we scan for any vulnerabilities, missing patches, or any misconfiguration, and user video when we look at objects created in the database, in users' privileges.

What is most valuable?

I have found that transfer and vulnerability scanning are the most valuable features of this product.

What needs improvement?

As the product is quite old, it needs to be migrated to more up-to-date solutions. However, this tends to take a long time and it would be very convenient if it could be done more quickly. The other main disadvantage is that the product does not have encryption or data masking, unlike other companies' versions.

In the next release, I would like to see the return of support for target databases that the product has discontinued support for.

For how long have I used the solution?

I have been using Trustwave DbProtect for approximately three years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

The stability of this solution is above average.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

The product's scalability is above average.

How are customer service and support?

My experience with customer support has been good, although sometimes the time difference with the support team makes it difficult to communicate.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup was quite simple.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Flexible licensing is available with several models to choose from. As the product is Windows-based, additional costs include a Windows server license and Microsoft SQL for the internal database.

What other advice do I have?

The product requires at least one person for maintenance.

I would rate it an eight out of ten.
