I’m happy to share that we’re ending the year with a release of the Axiomatics Data Access Filter for Multiple Databases. If you’re not familiar with this solution, ADAF MD provides the ability to apply an Attribute Based Access Control approach to relational databases, featuring both Dynamic Data Masking and Data Access Filtering to ensure only authorized parties can view data retrieved from databases such as Oracle, IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, or Teradata.
This release adds several technical enhancements for using the product in large-scale deployments. The feature set includes:
- Multi-table attribute mapping to avoid duplication of XACML attributes and rules in customer’s policies when protecting two or more tables.
- The ability to fetch table definition information from the database when configuring the SQL Filter Service Agent.
- Support for SQL statements containing synonyms (referred to as aliases in DB2).
This release also adds support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 and 7.2 and Teradata 15.10, and also packages the latest version of Axiomatics Policy Server Express Edition.
