Free plug-in.

McAfee has introduced a MySQL audit plug-in for logging activity on the open-source database.

The plug-in is available at no charge for use with the security vendor's Database Activity Monitoring sensor.

When used with the sensor, the plug-in captures data that "is subject to the same real-time analysis and policy enforcement as the data collected from other supported databases," Dan Sarel, vice president of database security product management at McAfee, said Monday in a statement.

McAfee's activity monitor locates vulnerabilities, while also providing malware intrusion protection. The software also handles patching without taking applications offline, according to McAfee.

The MySQL audit plug-in supports databases from Oracle, Sybase, Microsoft and IBM. The plug-in is available for download.

McAfee acquired its database security products a year ago with the purchase of Sentrigo. The acquisition came a few months after the launch of the vendor's Security Connected initiative.

The mission was to provide partners, developers and customers with a more comprehensive approach to security by leveraging product integration and global threat intelligence.

Sentrigo was a partner of McAfee, which sold the company's technology as the McAfee Vulnerability Manager for Databases, the McAfee Database Activity Monitoring and the McAfee Integrity Monitoring for Databases.
