Oracle is happy to announce the availability of Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall 12.2 Bundle Patch 10.

AVDF provides a first line of defense for databases and consolidates audit data from databases, operating systems, and directories to support monitoring and compliance reporting. Audit records from on-premises and cloud databases are collected for centralized management and provide monitoring, reporting, and alerting of anomalous activity across databases. A highly accurate SQL grammar-based engine monitors unauthorized SQL traffic before it reaches the database. Please take a moment to visit our webpage for more information on Oracle AVDF.
