Did you catch my previous post on how premium database drivers can improve performance? Well, today I’ll be continuing the blog series and delving into another huge benefit of premium drivers: risk reduction and the design of secure applications.
Premium drivers, like DataDirect Connect, make it easy to provide robust application security features, which makes it possible to secure data exchange, address potential vulnerabilities inherent in database access and networks, and prevent a highly publicized security breach. There are three areas in particular that you should focus on in order to help reduce risk and secure your company’s information:
Maintaining a secure architecture doesn’t mean that you have to break the bank. Many premium drivers actually simplify pricing because data encryption and authentication is automatically included in the cost of the driver. This built-in security makes it easy to develop secure applications without the need to purchase additional products. DataDirect Connect, in particular, minimizes complexity, as it is compatible with many existing IT architectures.
