Data security is more critical than ever with new computing environments in the cloud and expanding access to the Internet. Data breaches can spell disaster for any enterprise and they show no signs of slowing down. Some estimates predict security attacks will increase 50% year over year. Mastering security best practices, then, should be a top priority in database administration.
NoSQL databases have become wildly popular as of late because of the innovations they bring in addressing the requirements of Big Data applications. MongoDB is the leader of NoSQL databases according to monthly DB-Engines rankings and the recent Gartner designation as a leader in database management systems.
There are a number of security protection mechanisms available for MongoDB to ensure you have a stable and secure architecture for your deployment. For enterprise grade security, choose Enterprise Server, the commercial version of MongoDB. This version meets strict security and compliance standards with Kerberos and LDAP authentication, Red Hat Identity Management Certification, and auditing. Advanced security features allow you to defend, quickly detect, and staunchly control access to your data.
To find out more about MongoDB’s enterprise grade security features, watch our webinar on Securing Your MongoDB Deployment. We cover NoSQL security best practices and talk specifically about:
- Security threats to databases
- How security threats can be mitigated in MongoDB deployments
- Ideal configurations for improved security
- MongoDB’s security architecture
As you evaluate different NoSQL database systems, you should investigate the details of a database’s security architecture. Find out more about how MongoDB addresses security by watching our webinar or searching our website for more information.
