SQL Server Auditing

SQL Server Auditor

To store massive amount of data or information, large organizations often choose to implement MS SQL server. The information from the SQL server can be retrieved from any and every workstation within the entire network. But since troublesome elements exist everywhere, attempts can be made by them to make unauthorized and undesirable changes in the SQL server. It becomes next to impossible to track and trace the critical changes immediately on their occurrence when the organization is quite large with numerous computers connected within the network.

SQL Server Audit software is a crackerjack solution to deal with such problematic situation since it not only monitors the occurrence of such critical activities but also notifies the concerned person as soon as they occur. This is not all, SQL Server change auditing tool makes available the entire details as what changes were made, at what time, from which workstation and where they were made i.e. Who, where, what and when made the changes. Its web console enables the administrator to give access to Audit reports. With the help of it, reports can be accessed by AD users through a web browser.

The software is embedded with helpful filter options that can unwrap or drill down the data to extract required details. Additionally, it also enables the user to alter the settings so as to automate the delivery of real-time alerts or reports to the concerned recipients as soon as the suspicious activity takes place. By archiving all the logs centrally, this software allows to uphold compliance standards such as SOX, HIPAA, PCI and GLBA. 360 Degree view tab in RADAR provides a quick glance of all changes made into SQL Server along with resource consumption.

Microsoft SQL Server auditor is available as a part of LepideAuditor Suite. Other components of software are Active Directory auditor, GPO auditor, Exchange Server auditor, File Server auditor, and SharePoint auditor.
