The Birth of SQLBase Treasury

Unify Corp., a provider of application modernization software, today announced the availability of SQLBase Treasury, a fully transactional, high performance and encrypted version of the SQLBase embeddable database.

The company claims that SQLBase Treasury helps organizations avoid bad press, damage to reputations and possible costly litigation by providing security and protection of databases and applications.

SQLBase Treasury can help organizations take control of securing confidential information on networks and laptops. With industry-standard 128bit Triple DES database encryption, over the wire and database encryption, and built-in brute force, denial of service attack and encryption key search prevention, SQLBase provides a tamperproof database for customers with mobile workforces that store or distribute sensitive or financial customer data.

The system encrypts data traffic between client and server to protect from network sniffing attacks. In addition SQLBase protects from password guessing attacks and DOS denial of service attacks by incrementing login retry intervals. Every unsuccessful attempt made to access the data through a false password is timed and the time is then doubled on the next attempt. Programs that try a large number of passwords are blocked.

SQLBase Treasury, built on the heritage of SQLBase 11, is a small footprint, self managing embedded databases among ISVs and corporate end users. The combination of zero maintenance, reliability, embeddablity and encryption make SQLBase Treasury ideal as a relational data store for low-security, high-risk environments. A product evaluation of SQLBase Treasury is available from the Unify website. Pricing begins at $224 for a developer version.

"SQLBase Treasury encrypts information within the database and secures applications, to protect against hacking and attacks of personal and confidential data. Customers face the very real threat of theft, security breaches and brute force attacks in today's mobile world. SQLBase Treasury brings peace of mind to organizations that widely use laptops and have an increased risk of losing sensitive information by encrypting the data and applications, preventing it from getting into the hands of competitors and criminals," said Duane George, Vice President of Product Development and CTO of Unify.
