AUSTIN, Texas, May 30 /PRNewswire/ — Database-Brothers, Inc. (DBI) today introduced new database auditing capabilities by extending the rich features, platform, and database support of its US Patent Pending Brother-WatchDog(R) database security and auditing solution.
AUDITING ORACLE DATABASES
Release 1.4 extends Brother-WatchDog to fully support auditing of Oracle 11g, 10g, and 9.2 databases, plus optionally allows Oracle customers to store their audit data in an Oracle Repository with digital signatures, or "tamper evident seals," to harden the audit data. Adding additional flexibility, the Oracle Repository can be installed on Windows servers, Red Hat Linux 5 Servers, and most UNIX systems.
AUDITING DB2 Linux, UNIX, Windows DATABASES
In the wake of IBM's recent DB2 V8.2, V9.1, and V9.5 fixpacks that address security vulnerabilities, Brother-WatchDog has been updated and certified to work with the most current versions and patch levels of DB2 on distributed platforms. And, following suit with Oracle Repository support, the DB2 Repository can now be installed on Windows servers, Red Hat Linux 5, and most UNIX systems.
ENHANCED REPORTING CAPABILITIES
Brother-WatchDog continues its industry leadership for tracking the identities and activities of individual web application users, plus reporting on activities of privileged DBA users, administrators, and query users. An auditor or security professional can easily identify who did what from where and when, and obtain reports in CSV, HTML, and now PDF formats, plus receive alerts for targeted activities if desired.
Brother-WatchDog's list price is only $11,785 USD per database server CPU, a small fraction of the price for Oracle Audit Vault and other competing products. DBI allows customers to name their own prices and terms via http://www.dbisoftware.com/yourterms.php therefore tying the price of the software to the value derived by the organization. "With competitive pricing like this, securing data assets and meeting regulatory requirements should be affordable for most organizations," said Scott Hayes, President and CEO, DBI. "We've automated database auditing and made it easy," he added.
