The press release is here: Limited to offer Sentrigo’s Hedgehog solution to customers worldwide

WOBURN, Mass."February 4, 2008"Sentrigo, Inc., an innovator in database security software, today announced that Limited, the world-renowned Oracle security consultancy headed by Pete Finnigan, has become a Sentrigo partner and will resell the Hedgehog Enterprise™ and Hedgehog IDentifier™ products. Sentrigo works with numerous international partners to reach customers worldwide; Limited is Sentrigo’s first partner based in the U.K. and will offer Hedgehog to customers in that country and beyond. Limited, based in York, England, specializes in Oracle database security audits and training, and offers detailed Oracle security IT health checks and remediation.

“There are several products on the market that aim to protect corporate databases, but I believe Sentrigo’s is the first to really address the problem,” said Finnigan. “Other database activity monitoring products monitor network traffic, but this is simply of no help in spotting and stopping direct intrusions from company insiders who can readily bypass firewalls and network appliances. Hedgehog’s ease of use, configurability and design make me excited to offer the product to my own clients.”

Nathan Shuchami, Sentrigo’s CEO, said: “Pete Finnigan is one of the most widely respected domain experts in the world and we’re honored that an individual of his caliber would choose Sentrigo as a partner. We look forward to collaborating with him to provide a very usable yet powerful solution to customers worldwide.”

Sentrigo’s Hedgehog software is a new solution for real-time database monitoring, auditing and breach prevention. It can be downloaded and installed directly on the database in minutes and configured to provide the precise level of protection and alerts desired. Hedgehog is currently available for Oracle, with additional database support available later this year. Hedgehog Enterprise; Hedgehog IDentifier, which associates database actions with individuals in pooled connection environments; and Hedgehog Standard™, which may be freely downloaded and deployed, are available at
