Symantec Corp. has launched a series of partnerships and products designed to keep crackers from breaking into customer databases to steal personal information.
Security 2.0 products include Symantec Database Security, an auditing and intrusion detection tool designed to catch fraud attempts in real time by monitoring sensitive data and notifying administrators when someone tries to download it. The product builds a profile of what it considers normal interaction with the database and flags abnormal activity.
