A group of entrepreneurs and industry veterans observed these challenges closely and embarked on a mission of providing enterprises with comprehensive support for cloud-native and on-premise databases. In 2013, this goal led to the inception of jSonar—pioneers of next-generation database security for cloud and on-premise ecosystems. Their platform delivers security analytics, policy control, automation and orchestration, all from one platform. “Incepted in the Cloud era, we didn’t have any “baggage” in terms of legacy technology. We’re always driven by the goal of being cloud-first in our capabilities and making it simple to secure data-centric cloud workloads. This has enabled us to design robust solutions for database security and AI algorithms for threat identification, response automation, and more,” says Ron Bennatan, Founder and CTO.
jSonar takes away the complexity of addressing each cloud- and on-premise environment differently by providing their clients with a single platform to manage all operations around data security and compliance. For example, companies often run their relational database management system (SQL Server) in multiple locations, including on-premise data repositories, AWS, Azure, or rely on a NoSQL database or Hadoop on EMR. jSonar’s solution allows its client’s internal IT teams to run sensitive data operations consistently across all the platforms. “We abstract the complexity of the numerous and disparate systems. Subsequently, our clients can simplify manual operations and spend more time mastering new skills and advancing their organization,” says Bennatan.
What our customers love most is that we make their lives easier – not only making their transition to Cloud easier but at the same time simplifying their on-prem database security program
It also helps clients seamlessly migrate from on-premise to cloud with the same security controls and compliance policies. Not stopping there, jSonar works in collaboration with both customers and the traditional Database Activity Monitoring (DAM) vendors to help clients secure on-premise data repositories so they get the highest return from any existing DAM investments.
Honing such capabilities, jSonar has helped many Fortune 1000 companies who often struggle to extend their security policies into the cloud despite investing significantly in security tooling for on-premise data repositories. Leveraging jSonar’s solution, they can easily maintain the same level of security in on-premise, cloud, multi-cloud, and hybrid-cloud environments. jSonar also ensures development teams work in liaison with clients directly so they can understand client requirements first-hand and deliver a solution accordingly. “What our customers love most is that we make their lives easier – not only making their transition to Cloud easier but at the same time also simplifying their on-prem database security program,” Bennatan notes.
In a nutshell, jSonar is pioneering the next generation of database security solutions with its modern, powerful, and efficient architecture. Instead of reverse engineering 20-year-old methodologies to fit modern environments, the company has set the goal of being more modern, flexible, and agile. “Everyone in the jSonar team has an immense passion for making powerful but simple customer-driven solutions. As such, what takes our competitors a year to put out we can do in two weeks! This level of speed-to-market helps our clients stay competitive, secure, and enable transformations in their own business,” concludes Bennatan.
