Oracle has released a system designed to help organisations address database regulatory requirements and insider threat concerns.

Oracle has released a system designed to help organisations address database regulatory requirements and insider threat concerns.

Built on Oracle database infrastructure software, Oracle Audit Vault is an audit consolidation and management system for compliance reporting, detecting threats and securing audit data, said Oracle. 

Oracle said the system delivers an in-depth and comprehensive view of audit data pulled from the database, helps to ensure the integrity of this information, and can reduce the cost of compliance by making it easier for auditors and security personnel to manage and report on this data. 

The system will consolidate audit silos across an enterprise and securely house the audit data in a single location. In addition, Oracle Audit Vault’s alerting capability detects unauthorised access early, which is aimed to mitigate risk and potential financial liabilities. 

Trent Henry, a senior analyst at Burton Group, said, “Given the critical information at stake, database auditing and monitoring solutions are fundamental for today's environment because they serve a dual purpose - helping streamline audit reporting while improving an organisation's overall security.”

Oracle Audit Vault currently consolidates and manages audit data from Oracle Database 10g Release 2, Oracle Database 10g and Oracle9i Database Release 2
