NCipher have made product updates

I just saw a news article on InformationWeek about NCipher who make the SecureDB product. The article was written by Martin J. Garvey and is titled "NCipher's Security System Supports More Databases". The article talks about the risks to data held in databases and the fact that serious thieves and hackers go after the data held in your databases. Martin suggests that there is a continuing market for third party add-on security products for databases including Oracle. nCipher's SecureDB product which current supports Oracle will also support DB2 and Microsoft SQL Server from next week. SecureDB is a hardware and software product that sits next to the database watching for intrusions. The product can also help decide what data should be encrypted and what should remain un-encrypted. It can also help with enforcing security policies.

I have just added a link to this tool on my Oracle Security tools page in the commercial section as I was not aware of this product. It looks like a useful product, have a look at the news article and also at the product page for - (broken link) SecureDB.
