SANS Analyst Reviews Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall

New SANS Institute Report Puts Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall to the Test

A new report from leading security organization SANS Institute finds that Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall successfully achieves three key security objectives:

  • audit collection,
  • SQL traffic monitoring, 
  • security event reporting.  
SANS Analyst Review of Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall

With Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall, organizations can monitor both Oracle and non-Oracle database traffic, and detect and block threats. It also enhances compliance by consolidating audit data from disparate sources—including databases, operating systems, directories, custom applications, and more—into a secure data warehouse for reporting and alerting.

"Our review concluded that AVDF did what it claimed to do and is a valuable solution for organizations looking for a first line of defense that protects their data and databases, says SANS Analyst, Tanya Baccam. "The functionality of AVDF became apparent through the review as we looked at audit trails and reports and tested SQL injections. AVDF comes with a variety of useful audit reports based on multiple regulations and standards, and it can monitor for malicious activity out of the box."
