Silver Award:

AppDetective

It's a safe bet your critical databases are vulnerable to attack, and AppDetective, one of a handful of specialized vulnerability scanners on the market, performs its job so well that readers voted it silver medalist in the database security category. AppDetective, available as a standalone product or as part of the DbProtect suite with AppRadar, a database monitoring tool, scored high among readers for its integration and compatibility with existing infrastructure, an important point for vulnerability scanners, which are often seen as intrusive, even disruptive. Readers also liked AppDetective's reporting and alerting capabilities. The network-based scanner simulates attacks, performing penetration testing to discover vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. It can also perform security audits, determining vulnerability to internal misuse.
