Databases are the lifeblood of any organisation, holding your most sensitive information. In terms of damage that the loss or unauthorised modification of a system could cause, databases tend to rank towards, if not at the top of the list. Mandalorian’s Microsoft SQL Server Security Review service provides a comprehensive assessment of Microsoft SQL Server database security.

Microsoft SQL Server is commonly found in systems using the .NET framework and IIS, but are also found in a variety of more traditional binary ‘fat client’ applications, used to service large numbers of applications in a cluster configuration to provide services and on Microsoft’s Azure cloud. While a properly hardened and maintained Microsoft SQL Server can protect sensitive assets, an unhardened or misconfigured Microsoft SQL Server can expose your data to the risk of compromise.

The Mandalorian Approach

Following an initial scoping meeting or call, we provide a fully scoped quote for your Microsoft SQL Server Security Review. Our consultants will perform the work in accordance with the agreed scope. The work can be variable and may require a mixture of on-site and off-site work. Once complete, our consultants produce a report with a high level executive summary, detailed technical section and appendices for any relevant observations requiring further detail.

Typical Findings

While conducting Microsoft SQL Server Security Tests, Mandalorian consultants encounter many different types of weakness. Items often identified include:

  • SA or admin account with weak or null password
  • Windows Authentication weaknesses
  • Weak authorization exposing sensitive data
  • Dangerous stored procedures enabled
  • Excessive privileges for application accounts
  • Cryptographic weaknesses.
