Oracle Broadens Database Auditing And Monitoring Capabilities

Oracle Audit Vault now collects audit data from IBM DB2 and Sybase ASE to help customers meet regulatory mandates and secure against insider threats

Redwood Shores, Calif. - January 28, 2009 News Facts To assist organizations seeking to further mitigate security risks, satisfy compliance regulations, and protect their enterprise databases, Oracle' Audit Vault has introduced support for collecting audit data from IBM DB2 for Linux, UNIX and Windows (IBM DB2) and Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (ASE) database servers.

Oracle Audit Vault offers organizations a centralized auditing and activity monitoring solution for their Oracle and third party databases. Comprehensive Database Auditing and Activity Monitoring Solution

Oracle Audit Vault now captures audit data from IBM DB2 versions 8.2 and 9.5 and Sybase ASE versions 12.5 and 15.0, in addition to Microsoft SQL Server 2000 and 2005 and Oracle Database 11g.

Oracle Audit Vault addresses the lack of IBM, Microsoft and Sybase solutions for enterprise database auditing and activity monitoring.

With Oracle Audit Vault, audit data is consolidated automatically into a secure, centralized repository built using Oracle's proven data warehousing software, and analyzed in real-time against enterprise-defined policies. Any unauthorized activities can be detected immediately using Oracle Audit Vault's alerts dashboard.

In addition, Oracle Audit Vault delivers pre-built, customizable reports to help address the need for comprehensive compliance reporting for regulations such as the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and the Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) Act. Oracle Audit Vault's reports can be saved and shared within the enterprise as well as with external auditors.

Oracle Audit Vault can be used to monitor privileged user activities as well as privileged user controls enforced by Oracle Database Vault, the industry's only native solution for real-time enforcement of preventive database controls. By using Oracle Audit Vault, Oracle Database Vault customers are further assured of the integrity of their preventive controls.

Oracle leads the industry in native database auditing with fine-grained auditing at the user, statement and object levels that provide organizations the capabilities to effectively monitor all database activities.

Supporting Quotes "Customers can further improve the security of their enterprise databases with Oracle Audit Vault," said Vipin Samar, vice president of Database Security, Oracle. "Oracle Audit Vault's database activity monitoring and reporting capabilities turn real-time audit data generated natively by heterogeneous databases into a key security resource for detecting unauthorized activity as well as automating time-consuming regulatory compliance reporting functions."

"Automating the collection of audit data needed to generate compliance reports can save organizations significant costs," said PricewaterhouseCoopers' Oracle Technology practice leader, Sohail Siddiqi. "Products such as Oracle Audit Vault that collect audit data from diverse databases can help organizations increase enterprise security and meet regulatory mandates more efficiently."

"Clients often look for monitoring tools that support more than a single platform," said Trent Henry, Senior Analyst, Burton Group. "When a database vendor provides a tool that offers heterogeneous support, it fundamentally changes the game and removes a serious obstacle to adoption."
