Tizor Expands Mantra Capabilities

Tizor Systems announced Mantra V5.4 with Enterprise Local Audit Architecture

MAYNARD, Mass. -- Tizor Systems, the leading provider of enterprise data auditing and protection solutions for the data center, today announced Mantra V5.4 with Enterprise Local Audit Architecture, the most complete solution for monitoring all local and privileged user access to databases. Mantra's Enterprise Local Audit Architecture combines the new technology Enterprise-TAP (E-TAP) agent with Mantra's current agent-less local audit capabilities enabling customers to choose the approach that best fits their needs for monitoring local database activity, including privileged user activity. Combined with new customized reporting and workflow features, Mantra V5.4 further extends Mantra's lead in providing a high performance-network data monitoring solution with complete visibility into all critical data activity.

Until now, enterprises that needed to monitor local user activity were forced to choose between a local agent-based solution and an agent-less solution. Mantra V5.4, with Enterprise Local Audit Architecture, enables both approaches, providing customers with the flexibility to address complex heterogeneous environments. This capability makes Mantra the most comprehensive and flexible approach for monitoring privileged users with local access to databases. It also gives customers the flexibility to mix and match approaches for different environments.

Local Audit Highlights:

  • Mantra agent-less local audit does not require the installation of agents on servers. The agent-less approach provides complete visibility into encrypted connections to the databases.
  • Mantra E-TAP local agent monitors all local activity regardless of how the users connect to the database. E-TAP monitors local loopback connections as well as other connections, such as shared memory and named pipes, without requiring changes to database systems.

Both the agent-less and E-TAP approaches have no material impact on database performance. They both work in concert with Mantra's network-level monitoring by using a common policy system and Mantra presents audit information gathered by any of the methods in fully integrated reports and alerts.
