Managed Security Services Can Protect Your Organization: The hacker SQL injection attack is a technique often used to bypass the security measures implemented by “front-end/back-end” website and database structure, which is quite similar to, and in some cases regarded as one of the well-known buffer overflow cyber attack methods frequently used to gain unauthorized access and/or privilege escalation.

To perform a SQL injection attack, the attacker essentially inputs information into an interactive field in a web page or may inject a specially constructed command string into the website address bar of a web browser that includes SQL database commands (usually at the end of the command string) hoping the web site’s back-end database accepts and executes the commands.

The types of commands an attacker may choose to inject are usually commands that grant privilege escalation (administrator or root permissions), administrative command line access, forms of database reconfiguration, or commands with the potential to gain full access to confidential information contained in the database that normally requires proper authentication and permissions for access.

SQL injection, however, can do more than simply enable an attacker to gain full access to a database and information it holds. Since many relational databases grant the database administrator account administrative access to the operating system, if the database is not securely configured, an attacker could gain full access and control of the underlying operating system as well!

Disaster recovery as a service is important! Disasters are an unfortunate and inevitable situation in the world of technology. Between cyber attacks, hardware failures, power outages, and natural disasters, you need assurance that your protected servers will remain functional. That’s why disaster recovery is more than a service. It’s a solution.

Disaster recovery as a service

According to a recent article from IT ProPortal, a survey found that 89 percent of IT professionals at small to mid-sized companies plan to implement more cloud-based disaster recovery within the next year. However, 64 percent of them are currently getting disaster recovery services from three or more different products, and a quarter of them are relying on at least five products. 9 out of 10 companies wish to consolidate their disaster recovery solutions.

In spite of all the products being used, the vast majority of these companies report that it takes more than an hour for their systems to recover from a power failure, and more than a quarter need at least two hours. Time is money, and 72 percent of the companies surveyed stated that the speed of their backup and recovery is critical to their business.
