HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Oct 11, 2012) - Idera, a leading provider of application and server management solutions, today announced the latest version of SQL compliance manager™, a comprehensive SQL Server auditing solution that uses policy-based algorithms to track changes to SQL Server data changes and user activity.
SQL compliance manager 4.0 features a new easy configuration wizard that registers SQL Server instances, adds databases for audits and auto-configures audit settings for selected regulatory guidelines.
Particularly powerful are the wizard's out-of-the-box, customizable templates that take the guesswork out of how to comply with Health Insurance Portability Accountability Act (HIPAA), HITECH and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) information security regulations. Database administrators (DBAs) no longer need to interpret the meaning of regulations or research the correct auditing and alerting settings to activate. The templates have preset auditing settings aligned to over 16 regulatory citations that automatically add the compliance regulations to the audited SQL server objects. A DBA can also quickly satisfy audit requests with the new regulation guidelines report, which includes details for all of the guidelines applied to the selected SQL Server instance and/or objects.
"With this new version it takes just minutes instead of hours for DBAs to register and configure SQL Servers and provide auditors with an accurate trail of activities such as database access, update actions, schema changes and security permissions changes," said Juan Rogers, Product Manager for SQL Server Security Solutions at Idera. "It also goes beyond traditional database auditing approaches by providing real-time monitoring and alerting on changes and attempted changes to databases -- helping to ensure both regulatory compliance and the security of sensitive data."
