Dataskope Database Activity Monitoring

Independently monitors and audit all database activity, including administrator activity and SQL query transactions (DML, DDL, DCL and TCL.)

At a Glance

DATASKOPE monitors database activity without audit subsystem of the respective database server being turned on. It classifies and correlates the audit logs and store them outside the database.  It ensures that a service account only accesses a database from a defined sources, and only runs a narrow group of authorized queries. This can alert you to compromises of a service account either from the system that normally uses it, or if the account credentials show up in a connection from an unexpected system.

Dataskope Agents can record all SQL transactions: DML, DDL, DCL, and TCL. It can do this without relying on local database logs, thus reducing performance degradation.

Dataskope Database Activity Monitoring lets you:

  • Monitor Logins – Monitor successful and failed logons and ensure they are from predefined and valid sources
  • Monitor Changes – Audit SELECT, UPDATE, DELETE, EXEC, and other SQL statements.
  • Monitor Access to Sensitive Information – Monitor who is accessing sensitive information. When the unexpected happens generate alerts.
  • Monitor Privileged Users – Audit DBA/Developer activity and configuration changes to the database system.
  • Generate Reports –  Pre-defined policies and reports for PCI, SOX, and other generic compliance requirements.
  • Reporting – ISO27001, COBIT, PCI, SOX reports are just clicks away.
