Find out what your peers are saying about IDERA SQL Compliance Manager vs. Oracle Audit Vault and other solutions. Updated: November 2019.
378,124 professionals have used our research since 2012.
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
The tool can track logins and login failures. I made my own alert so that if there is a certain number of login failures for a server, it emails me. That is really useful. If I want logins to automatically lock out after a certain number of failed attempts, I can know when that happens.
The ability to track activity including the SQL statements is definitely valuable. I really like how the database is laid out. It's straightforward. I can query the back-end tables. I've made a few of my own email alerts based on the data and the tables. It's accessible.
It has provided us with a unique opportunity to automate risk discovery.
Our clients can see all of their past actions or the wrong activity done on the network. We can load the diagnostics for the business.
A powerful, flexible solution for database traffic monitoring.
The solution is very stable and reliable.
This solution acts as a complete data warehouse for our audit data.
Our client was scheduled to take a year and a half to set up compliance, but by deploying this product they were able to do the compliance reports within three months.
It has reduced the stress of collecting database event logs in silos from each database.
Out-of-the-box policies ensure our compliance with standards like SOX, ISO 27001, and so on.
I submitted a ticket (last year) about archiving/grooming of old records because the GUI functionality was not working. Per their recommendation, I ended up using a command line to do it.
The set up is kind of clunky, in my opinion. It's not really intuitive. If they had either a smoother install or better instructions, that would be nice.
There is an agent that collects the data on SQL Server. Sometimes it will stop collecting. I'm not exactly sure what's happening but I have to go in and manually restart the agent. It would be nice if the central collection server could send a request to the agent to restart.
What would really a good thing is if you could refer to an external list or table for filtering on, say, certain applications, IP addresses, or host names; or perhaps even combinations of host name and application name.
We would like to see the ability to administer and manage the solution through Enterprise Manager 13c, and development of the dashboards that are generally missing.
Some of our customers were asking about latency when the application wants to get to the database.
The product monitors only the database and not the operating systems.
One feature that is missing is the ability to have a secret server that is always encrypted.
Customized reporting is something that we are struggling with, and it is quite tough for us.
This solution doesn't audit the network.
An easy, friendly user interface would be nice to have, since this would enable administrators to identify important events with a prompt response.
Pricing and Cost Advice
The product is cheaper than other products I checked but it is still a good idea to check again and compare.
I feel the product's pricing is a good value.
The pricing is pretty good.
It's a good price value... The other tools weren't cheaper.
For the bank, the license was $48,000 last time. That was the licensing for the bank on just one license.
Oracle can be an expensive solution depending on the options and user needs.
This solution is definitely not expensive, and it is a small fraction of the overall database licensing costs.
The licensing cost is about $360,000, annually.
