Data is a core element for every business. There is an increasing demand to integrate systems for a better and more secure data flow. In this article, the training team provide a step by step guide on how to integrate Imperva’s Data Risk Analytics (DRA) with your Data Security Fabric (DSF). This is just one of the items covered in our Imperva training courses. Visit out training catalog or Contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Imperva Data Security Fabric* combines the granularity of Imperva Agent Gateways and Agents with the flexibility of Sonar Agentless auditing and insights provided by Imperva Data Risk Analytics** to form a robust and flexible solution for monitoring, auditing and reporting on your data assets across your data estate.
There are two use cases when it comes to integrating DRA with DSF. The first use case is to send incidents from the DRA admin to the DSF hub for improved reporting and the second use case is to send DSF audits logs to DRA for improved DB coverage.
Here are the steps for DRA to DSF hub integration
For our second use case, we need to send DSF audits logs to DRA for improved DB coverage. To do this we need to integrate DSF with DRA following these steps
For the DSF hub to send information to DRA seamlessly we need to perform the key exchange between the DSF hub and the DRA analytics server. This means that it runs an SSH key-based authentication instead of password-based authentication.
Through the new release of Imperva Data Security Fabric, IT teams will be able to easily integrate and deploy solutions to meet their data security requirements. This integration incorporates a wide range of technologies that would have been hard to achieve otherwise into an easy-to-deploy and manage solution. The Imperva Data Risk Analytics implementation with DSF is a powerful framework that can help organizations monitor, audit and report on the vast amount of data they have while giving users control to protect the information they use with access controls and directly restricting inappropriate activities.
Data Risk Analytics is a key feature of Imperva Data Security that provides security insights that can be acted upon immediately. In contrast to user behavior analytics tools, Imperva's Data Risk analytics creates a contextual baseline of behavior based on both user behavior and data access activities, and can identify critical threats to data by learning what sensitive data has been touched and by whom and when. Itcan also learn how data is used and accessed. This approach cuts through the noise and prioritizes a few high-risk incidents that need to be investigated immediately. As a result of this feature, the security team can uncover and contain potential breaches more effectively, giving CISOs and CIOs greater confidence that they will be able to prevent data breaches in the future.
A Data Security Fabric is a comprehensive security solution that ties together disparate security applications and services to provide a unified view of an organization's data security posture. By integrating with existing IT infrastructure, the data security fabric can provide real-time visibility into all activity related to sensitive data, including user and entity behavior analytics, data discovery, and file activity monitoring.
Data security fabric can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud and is designed to be scalable so that it can grow with an organization's needs. It offers a management console for configuring and administering all security policies, as well as for generating reports on compliance and risk.
