It is imperative that companies, competing in today’s business environment, can demonstrate a strong and reliable internal control infrastructure.

It is absolutely crucial for management to be able to determine Who, What, Where, When and How its Data was changed. You can select from our range of managed Database auditing services a solution that will allow you to significantly improve your internal control infrastructure within your organization as well as report to you exactly what has happened to your data.
Compliance requirements are a fact of life for PLC corporations, with regulations such as SOX, BASEL II, HIPAA, PCI, etc. having widespread impact on global organizations. Organizations meet these regulations by implementing internal controls to specifically comply with the regulations defined for the type of corporation. Companies need to be able to prove to auditors (internal and external) that they have implemented internal IT controls to address compliance requirements as well as be able to demonstrate that these controls are effective. As part of the compliance checks data changes and manipulation is a key component of proving compliance. Database auditing is a major requirement when examining compliance initiatives. For compliance purposes this audit information needs to be comprehensive, easy to understand, aggregated, managed, and secured across systems that can be readily reported on. We use Oracle’s Audit Vault, a ‘best of breed’ product, as our platform to provide our clients meaningful and specific information for covering all Database changes across the enterprise. We have a range of managed Database auditing services that you can select from to suit your specific compliance requirements and budget.
While many enterprises take measures to protect themselves against external threats (e.g. hackers, etc.) they are more likely to be attacked from the within the organization. Studies from major research firms report that more than 70-80% of all security breaches come from resources inside the organization. Most of these attacks happen using valid user credentials. Unfortunately for many organizations, these breaches are not discovered until it's too late. Our managed Database auditing services will quickly identify if and when a breach has occurred allowing you to react and correct the breach before any significant damage occurs.
Corporations increasingly need to be able to prove that they are protecting sensitive and confidential data. Compliance regulations, for example, HIPAA requires healthcare providers to determine who has access to personal healthcare information (PHI) and how it was used. Companies subjected to PCI regulations from the credit card industry are faced with similar requirements and must take active measures to protect Personally Identifiable Information (PII). Non-regulated companies will also have extremely sensitive information; customer details, payroll, competitive analysis, etc. will all be stored within its Database. Auditing helps you satisfy privacy regulations (compliance or non-compliance) by determining who did what, where, when, and how and demonstrating whether preventative controls aimed at protecting private information are working effectively. We have a range of services that offer a fully managed Database auditing service to suit your requirements and budget.
Whether it is IT systems management, meeting compliance regulations, enhancing your control infrastructure - all constitute a significant expense that organizations want to minimize as much as possible. Centralizing the creation, implementation, and management of audit policies across the enterprise instead of individually managing specific systems, increases efficiencies and saves time and precious resources. Using a managed Database auditing service allows you to free up valuable DBA resources; redeploy internal control resources to more productive areas; save on IT infrastructure costs and take advantage of having your audit data and information stored in a secure off-site location which cannot be tampered with.
