SUNNYVALE, Calif., Jan. 20, 2009 - Fortinet - the provider of unified threat management (UTM) solutions - today announced new functionalities for its FortiDB database security appliances, adding monitoring and auditing capabilities to the vulnerability assessment (VA) solution introduced last year. The new tools enable 24x7 or scheduled-based monitoring and a complete audit trail to help organizations meet regulatory compliance such as PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry-Data Security Standard). Combined with the existing VA tool, these new FortiDB capabilities offer a richer and more comprehensive toolset for securing corporate databases, which are increasingly the target of criminal activity for the valuable data they hold. In addition, Fortinet is debuting two new models in the FortiDB product family - the FortiDB-400B and FortiDB-2000B - which join the previously announced FortiDB-1000B appliance to round out the family of database security products, offering appropriate sizing for small, medium and large enterprises.
