Proven record of preventing unauthorized access and modifications to our customer's data

What is our primary use case?

This solution is for database security and protecting the core of the data. It allows us to put in controls to make sure that only the right persons access the proper records in the database. It prevents unauthorized access. For example, a customer may want to restrict the database so that it is accessible only from within a specific application. This means that the database administrator will not be able to access the data from outside of the application, as is normally allowed by their administrative rights. It can prevent the administrator from seeing or modifying any data for which they… more »

Pros and Cons

  • "It allows us to put in controls to make sure that only the right persons access the proper records in the database."
  • "The biggest complaint that I hear from customers and users is that using this solution requires database skills, yet it is a security and monitoring tool."

Pros and Cons

  • "A powerful, flexible solution for database traffic monitoring."
  • "The product monitors only the database and not the operating systems."

What other advice do I have?

I would rate Oracle Audit Vault an eight out of ten. The features are there, but the users don't know how to take full advantage of them. I would strongly recommend that, when evaluating products, they need to understand the key features to leverage them. But again, at the end of the day, it's the mandate of the sales guy to get the customers to understand the product as they go to buy. If a sales guy is not selling well then there's a challenge. I'll pick out the key important features that will provide the most value. I always try to educate clients and tell them to spread out and do a…
