BindView Extends IT Security and Compliance to Oracle Databases

HOUSTON --(Business Wire)-- Feb. 9, 2005 -- Advancing IT security and compliance for business-critical databases, BindView Corp. (Nasdaq:BVEW) announced today the availability of bv-Control for Oracle. The new, comprehensive software streamlines IT security, compliance and vulnerability management for data stores that house an organization's most valuable assets. The release of bv-Control for Oracle expands BindView's coverage of enterprise databases, which also includes its bv-Control for SQL Server software.

According to market research firm IDC(1), Oracle remains the dominant vendor in the cross-platform relational database market and serves as a critical IT backbone for global organizations. bv-Control for Oracle validates best practices for Oracle database security, helping to ensure risk management and compliance requirements are satisfied for enterprise-wide database infrastructures.

"Database security is core to protecting valuable assets and meeting regulatory compliance requirements," said Humana Vice President of Information Technology, Data Center Operations, Paul Ratner. "The capabilities of BindView's new bv-Control for Oracle offer an excellent solution for risk assessment of databases, both from the standpoint of vulnerability management and for meeting regulatory compliance requirements."

"Protecting vital databases is vital for business. You need to reduce security threats and demonstrate due care," said Earl Perkins, a vice president of META Group's Security and Risk Strategies practice. "IT security administrators and auditors alike need solutions that secure databases and ensure compliance."

"Organizations run on stockpiles of data, which makes information one of the most closely guarded assets for business continuity," said BindView Senior Vice President of Product Management Shekar Ayyar. "As global organizations face mounting audit pressures for demonstrating due care, bv-Control for Oracle streamlines processes for securing data to meet IT controls requirements."
