What is database activity monitoring?
Database activity monitoring (DAM) refers to the auditing of database activities such as database access and modifications in real time. By correlating network logs with database logs, DAM tools analyze and report on database activity, provide evidence for breach investigations, and alert on suspicious events. With the real-time insights offered by DAM tools, you'll be better prepared to ensure the confidentiality and integrity of your database.
EventLog Analyzer provides database activity monitoring for Microsoft SQL, MySQL, Oracle and IBM DB2 applications.
