Announcing Audit Vault 10.2.3
By Roxana Bradescu on Jul 31, 2008
One of the major features in this release is the ability to collect audit data from Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and 2005, in addition to Oracle Databases. This is a really important feature for customers with heterogenous infrastructure since it addresses the lack of a Microsoft solution for enterprise database auditing and activity monitoring. With Oracle Audit Vault 10.2.3, both Oracle and Microsoft database audit data can be automatically consolidated into a highly secure, centralized repository based on Oracle's proven data warehousing technology, and analyzed in real-time against enterprise-defined policies. Any unauthorized activities can be immediately detected using Oracle Audit Vault's dashboard alerts capabilities.
Other new features include more reporting capabilities such as filtering audit data, highlighting rows with condition values, as well as generating charts and graphs. Oracle Audit Vault also now comes with more built-in and customizable reports to address regulations such as the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act, the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS). And custom reports can be saved and shared within the enterprise or with external auditors.
Oracle Audit Vault 10.2.3 additionally increases privileged user monitoring by auditing Oracle Database Vault. By using Oracle Audit Vault, Oracle Database Vault customers can now monitor the integrity of their preventive controls. To learn more about how preventive and detective controls go hand in hand, check out our two part Ziff-Davis Enterprise Security webcast with industry expert Rich Mogull. Part one was all about using preventive controls to enforce separation of duties, and part two was about how to use detective controls to audit your preventive controls.
