DBMS support

SecureTower information security and risk management system can work with various types of DBMS.

The supported system includes both paid products from Microsoft and Oracle:

  • Microsoft SQL
  • Oracle SQL

and open-source ones:

  • PostgreSQL (recommended DBMS)
  • MySQL
  • SQLite. 

Average data volume from one user per month

The volume of data, acquired by the System from one user per month depends on individual monitoring settings, however, the average volume is about 1.7 Gb.

The total volume for a company can be approximately estimated by the specified formula:

Store = Ratio * Users * Month

Store – capacity in gigabytes (GB), required for storage of captured data

Ratio – coefficient, determining a monthly data volume in GB, captured from one user. The default value is 1.3. When only centralized capturing is used, the coefficient is 0.15. When only mail processing server is used, the coefficient is 0.25. When all server capturing servers are used, the total coefficient is 1.7 (1.3+0.15+0.25)

Users – number of the users under control

Month – number of months during which the data are stored

Index = Store * 0.05

Index – size of search index, comprising 5% of the captured data size
