What data can I get?
It is easy to get overwhelmed if you have to read through all Oracle audit entries when trying to validate access controls in your organization. Netwrix Auditor’s easy-to-read reports simplify monitoring of successful and failed attempts to log on to Oracle Database, as well as data access attempts, so you can quickly spot an attacker trying to break into your system or someone attempting to access sensitive data without authorization.
How can I use this data?
Even though you can configure basic alerts within your Oracle infrastructure, you are likely to miss a sequence of suspicious database activity that’s been going for a while. Netwrix Auditor provides a single view of all anomalous activity alerts triggered by an individual across all audited systems, along with the cumulative risk score, to improve detection of threat actors and help you make more informed remediation decisions.
If you spot malicious activity, such as a system account calling EXECUTE PROCEDURE statements to the main database or modifying its data dictionary, you can’t afford to waste time examining endless native audit logs to figure out how it happened. Interactive Search enables you to quickly sort through your audit data and find the answers you need in a few clicks. You can even use your query to easily create custom reports tailored to your specific needs and stay updated on similar incidents in the future.
Even if you audit all sessions across databases and maintain an Oracle Database audit trail, you might still face challenges when trying to prove your compliance to auditors. With Netwrix Auditor, you can easily demonstrate your compliance using out-of-the-box compliance reports mapped to specific controls of PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, SOX, GLBA, FISMA/NIST and other regulatory standards, so you can pass compliance audits faster and with less effort.
