Idera Announces SQL compliance manager 35

Low-Impact Database Auditing, Compliance Solution Now Provides Even Deeper Insight Into Potentially Suspicious Activity

HOUSTON – November 16, 2011 - Idera, a leading provider of Microsoft SQL Server management and administration solutions, today announced the latest version of SQL compliance manager™, a comprehensive auditing solution that audits all activity performed on an organization's most sensitive Microsoft SQL Server data. SQL compliance manager goes beyond traditional database auditing approaches by providing real-time auditing of all data access. SQL compliance manager also helps ensure compliance with regulatory and data security requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley, HIPAA, PCI, Basel II and the COBIT framework. New features in SQL compliance manager 3.5 include:
  • Sensitive Column Auditing -- Track who has accessed information in particularly sensitive columns in audited tables, and proactively identify malicious intent.
  • Transaction Status Auditing -- Audit the status of any transaction that executes DML statements on an audited database. This enhancement includes rollbacks and save-points, allowing DBAs to recognize and address suspicious activity.
"Inside threats are a major concern for our organization. SQL compliance manager gives us the ability to track what our database administrators and all users are doing," said a database administrator at a State and Local Government Agency. "If they are selecting information such as social security numbers, names, addresses or date of birth, SQL compliance manager traps that activity and helps us to comply with internal and external regulations."

Data security and regulatory compliance requirements are becoming increasingly stringent and DBAs are often tasked with the monumental task of providing an accurate audit trail of activities such as database access, update actions, schema changes and security permissions changes.

"Auditing and reporting on the required information can often require weeks or months of custom development, or in some cases the employment of a full-time staff to provide scheduled or on-demand reports to auditors," said Heather Sullivan, Director of SQL Server Products at Idera. "SQL compliance manager eliminates this overhead by providing real-time auditing, to provide quick, easy, accurate and trusted answers."

Pricing and availability
SQL compliance manager 3.5 is available today and is priced at $2,995 per instance.
