Start Up Focus Program – GreenSQL (on behalf of David Maman, CTO and Co-Founder of GreenSQL)
Information has become the world’s new currency. Databases are the digital banks that store and retrieve valuable information. Forrester estimates the current database market to be $27 billion and says it is likely to grow to $ 32billion by 2013. A data breach study by Verizon Business Services (2010) revealed that database servers accounted for 92% of all records breached, while other devices such as laptops and USB drives accounted for only 0.01%.
Due to high professional level of hackers and valuable business models that finance them, SQL injection attacks have become more sophisticated and challenging to prevent. Thus corporations are often guard less against bypass of the authentication mechanisms, read of the otherwise unavailable information from the database, operations performed on the database and write information, such as new user accounts, to the database.
