Modern database security provider jSonar has announced
major updates to its database security and compliance platform with the
launch of jSonar 4.2. JSonar has extended its expertise beyond data
monitoring, auditing, and security by adding an AI-powered “Learn from Me”
sensitive data management (SDM) system to help users more effectively
classify and manage sensitive data and a library of customizable playbooks
to help users take preventive action and automate the response to security
The patent-pending “Learn from Me” system utilizes AI to build an
institutional knowledge base that continuously reduces the work required
for labeling, tagging, and communicating where your sensitive data lives by
automatically incorporating historical actions into the decision process.
This enables organizations to significantly reduce manual efforts
associated with recurring scans.
The second major innovation in this release is the introduction of prebuilt
database security playbooks. The playbooks are collections of procedures
that users can run in response to various events, either as part of an
automated process or when human operations trigger orchestrated processes.
They enable users to respond to outliers, anomalies, and threats, as well
as automate communication about these events to the proper team members.
Prebuilt playbooks reduce the time required to write code into tools for
new detection and response procedures. Unlike traditional SOAR solutions,
the jSonar approach is specifically focused on integrations and actions
critical to database risk management.
Additional significant updates:
Splunk Application Reduces Indexing Costs by 95 Percent.
Over time, the ineffectiveness of native logging and data activity
monitoring tools has forced Splunk to act as the primary repository of
raw data and driven up indexing costs. JSonar customers that use Splunk
needed a way to capture and retain all raw data but publish only the
intelligent, actionable data that has value to Splunk. JSonar now
serves as a pre-processor that reduces Splunk indexing costs by 95
percent, extracts intelligence from the raw data, and pushes the
enriched data to the SOC team. jSonar presents security alerts to the
SOC team in an easy to understand format, and if users need to dig
deeper, they still have seamless access to all the raw data in the
system. Security analysts can then triage the issue and run a jSonar
playbook, all without leaving the Splunk UI.
Increased Data Sources.
JSonar has expanded the platform for database security to cover more
sources with native interfacing with over 60 databases now supported.
