Databases are an enticing target for cyber criminals, and many organizations fall short in protecting these critical repositories of customer information and intellectual property. AppDetectivePRO is database vulnerability assessment software that businesses use to identify and remediate vulnerabilities, configuration errors, rogue installations and access issues in their database deployments.


• Trustwave AppDetectivePRO is a database and big data store scanner that can immediately uncover configuration mistakes, identification and access control issues, missing patches or any toxic combination of settings that could lead to escalation-of-privilege or denial-of-service attacks, data leakage or unauthorized modification of data.
Because of its simple setup and intuitive interface, you don't have to be a database expert to use it. Immediately discover, assess and report on the security, risk or compliance posture of any database or big data store within your environment – either on premise or in the cloud – within minutes.
The quality of a database security solution directly correlates with the quality of its checks and tests. And a set of tests and checks is only as good as the research team that keeps it current. Trustwave SpiderLabs® is the leading database vulnerability research team in the industry and discovered 80 percent of the database vulnerabilities patched over the past four years. Our experts have discovered and reported hundreds of vulnerabilities in Oracle databases and dozens in Microsoft SQL Server, IBM DB2, MySQL, Sybase ASE and Hadoop.


Even some of the largest companies struggle with the maturity of their IT security programs. AppDetectivePRO helps solve this challenge by providing an easy-to-install scanner that can point to network segments, discover databases, scan them, find their issues, report on them and help remediate any discovered deficiencies.

Small and Midsize Businesses

When your IT staff is also your IT security staff, you need to automate scans. You also require best-of breed tools to help you uncover and repair weaknesses. No matter how small a database deployment you have, AppDetectivePRO offers security knowledge and an automated way to discover shortfalls – without the need to be an expert in database security.

Security Auditors and Risk Practices

AppDetectivePRO has long been used by security consultants to complete tasks such as compliance assessments and risk evaluations. These professionals recognize the database as a mission-critical asset that must be reviewed for vulnerabilities and other issues.
