McAfee Database Event Monitor for SIEM

McAfee Database Event Monitor for SIEM

Maximum visibility into database transactions without impacting performance

Next Steps:

Overview

The non-intrusive design of McAfee Database Event Monitor for SIEM supports your expanding compliance auditing and reporting requirements and enhances security operations. While it monitors all database transactions, Database Event Monitor for SIEM provides a complete audit trail of all database activities, including queries, results, authentication activity, and privilege escalations.

Database Event Monitor for SIEM is the only product that both consolidates database activity into a central audit repository and provides normalization, correlation, analysis, and reporting of that activity. It normalizes activity for analysis with other pertinent security information for expanded visibility into user and data interactions, user information, application contents, OS activity, vulnerabilities, and even network location.

Database Event Monitor for SIEM allows you to:

  • Track users across applications
  • Examine full session activity, from login to logoff
  • Detect sensitive data and identify policy violations
  • Detect loss of data through authorized channels
  • Correlate database activity to security events
  • Generate detailed reports for PCI DSS, HIPAA, NERC-CIP, FISMA, GLBA, SOX, and many more compliance requirements
