We recently released the latest version of Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall (AVDF). AVDF release 20 includes enhancements to address enterprise requirements for extensibility, scale, and security, along with improved ease-of-use and wider target coverage. Refer to this blog for an overview of the new features in AVDF 20. To help customers quickly adopt AVDF 20, we are running an Early Adopter Program (EAP).
The EAP is a guided program where you can exercise the new features of AVDF 20 following a simple cookbook. As a participant of the EAP, you will receive accelerated support from product development and Oracle support. While you are trying out AVDF 20 as a member of the EAP, you can take advantage of weekly office hours for questions or reach out to us any time via email.
The Early Adopter Program and weekly office hours run till Sept 30, 2020. You can sign up for this program by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org indicating your interest, with the subject “AVDF 20 early adopter program” or contacting your support team. We encourage you to apply as soon as possible as our capacity is limited, and we may stop the program after reaching our limit.
Note: If you are currently on AVDF 12.2, you need to upgrade to AVDF 20 before the end of March 2021, as AVDF 12.2 premier support ends at that time (see the lifetime support policy guide).
