Taylor Lewis
Product Marketing Manager

Oracle is happy to announce the availability of Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall 12.2 Bundle Patch 10. Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall (AVDF) secures databases and other critical components of IT infrastructure. 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.

The following changes are included in the Bundle Patch 10 release:

  • Added support for audit collection and database firewall protection for Microsoft SQL Server 2017.
  • Expanded support for host monitor on AIX 7.2 platform and Microsoft Windows Server 2016.
  • Introduced support for host monitor on Oracle Solaris 11 SPARC X64 super cluster using IPNET protocol.
  • Introduced support for audit collection, host monitor and agent installation on Oracle Linux/Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.4 and 7.5.
  • Expanded support for host monitor on Oracle Linux/Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9.
  • Added support for audit collection, host monitor and agent installation on Oracle Linux/Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.10.
  • Updated the underlying infrastructure to incorporate the January 2019 Bundle Patch for Oracle Database 12.1.0.2, which includes latest security fixes.
  • Security and stability fixes for Java and Oracle Linux operating system.
  • Fixes for a number of customer bugs.
