Announcing the General Availability of SQL Secure 4.1

by Aug 4, 2022

We are pleased to announce the general availability of SQL Secure 4.1

SQL Secure is the industry-leading, state of the art auditing and security solution for SQL Servers that helps identify vulnerabilities with SQL Server configurations and access, establishes security policies and baselines, and alerts if there are any potential risks discovered. With single button selections, SQL Secure configures security policies across SQL Server and Azure SQL databases required for compliance with regulatory standards such as GDPR, HIPAA, PCI, CIS, SOX, DISA/STIG, NERC and FERPA. A flexible system of alerting rules allow alerts to be generated across a broad range of significant, suspicious or undesired activities.

End of Life and Extended Support for Windows Server 2008/2008 R2

Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008/2008 R2 have both met their end-of-life and the extended support by Microsoft on July 9, 2019. End-of-life and extended support means the end of regular security updates for any product from Microsoft. Accordingly, SQL Secure 4.1 no longer supports Windows Server 2008/2008 R2 and SQL Server 2008/2008 R2. The 2008 products were outstanding for their time, however, we highly recommend upgrading to the most current versions for better performance, efficiency, and regular security updates for your testing and production environments.
