SQL Database Protection?

L4 Transporter

Is there any functionality within IPS/IDS or data filtering or anything in the Palo Alto that can go a little further than IPS/IDS which looks for "bad things" and that does some sort of verification/validation of SQL traffic?

The sort of thing that stuff like FortiDB/Imperva claims to do I guess where it's more to do with restricting commands/access to/from different sources/databases.

The Imperva product only looks at SQL  HTTP and HTTPS traffic. Their entire database is dedicated XSS and SQL injection and profiling web and DB devices. We have SQL injection signatures to detect wel known attacks but we do not have any insight into the databases. We have user-id and we can restrict  access to networks or devices but we can not tell you if a user has logged in as an admin or run some commands that only an admin should be using. We are a firewall first (all protocols and applications) with threat prevention and AV capabilities as well.
