A new article out of the company reports, “MariaDB® Corporation, the recognized leader in open source databases for Online Transactional Processing (OLTP), today announced the Spring 2016 release of MariaDB Enterprise. MariaDB’s upcoming offering addresses the most pressing enterprise data management challenges. New capabilities defend data against application and network-level attacks, support faster development of high-performance applications, and deliver higher service levels at lower cost. MariaDB also introduced the MariaDB Security Audit service to help customers identify and remedy data security weaknesses.”

The article goes on, “The performance and security enhancements reflect growing use of MariaDB in large, mission-critical applications in on-premise and cloud environments. The new release raises high availability to a new level with connection pooling, automatic failover, and integration of Galera multi-master cluster technology. Customers with mission-critical applications will benefit from over a dozen transaction processing performance improvements that include InnoDB storage engine optimization, memory optimization to boost query response, and numerous enhancements from WebScaleSQL created by the user community.”

It continues, “The Spring release provides security at every level in the database. It protects against SQL Injection and denial of service attacks, and transparently encrypts data both at rest in the database and in motion to and from applications. Customers can reduce the risk of data breaches by storing encryption keys in their choice of independent key management systems including ones from Eperi and AWS, and can leverage stronger Kerberos authentication, password validation plugins, and role-based access control.”
