Cyral has announced the launch of Approzium, an open source security project that has been designed to directly empower developers to improve monitoring and tracing of database services in the cloud or on-premises. Approzium is designed to work standalone and does not require the use of Cyral’s commercial platform.
Manav Mittal, CEO of Cyral said, “This unique data layer security project could only be successful if it’s open source since it’s going to be integrated into application code. By open sourcing the code, we wanted to eliminate any concern engineers would have about putting a third-party component in their application.”
Approzium security and performance metrics by default are sent to a Grafana dashboard. The company said that minor code changes make it easy to run a Datadog agent so that the metrics may be sent to a Datadog dashboard or whatever tool the development prefers to use.
Cyral had launched the open source brewOPA project in February. It aimed to make make it easier for developers, DevOps, and SecOps teams to interface with policy engines of the future. It helps developers to take advantage of YAML interfaces to bridge the gap between DSLs for data security in the world of cloud-native, Kubernetes, service mesh among others.
