Blocking on RDS Instances

  • 1.  Blocking on RDS Instances

    Posted 26 days ago

    Understand that RDS Instances or DB PaaS, such as on AWS or Azure platforms, does not support blocking action.

    If the customer has a requirement for blocking or preventing unusual activities, how can DAM be useful in this case?

    Depending on your use case, we support an immediate response using Sonar workflows.  If bad traffic is seen, you can trigger a workflow that will disable the user or take some other action (like block on the firewall).  

    I say it depends on your use case because it will not stop a "drop table" event, but works really well with data exfiltration.
