McAfee Database User Identifier

McAfee Database User Identifier

Trace end-user transactions from applications to the database for accountability and compliance

Next Steps:


McAfee Database User Identifier accurately identifies end-user activity when using pooled connections from the application to the database, making it possible to hold users accountable for their transactions and helping to bring organizations into compliance with regulations. With Database User Identifier, you can gain visibility into risks to sensitive data and gather actionable information to address these risks.

Dependable end-to-end user tracking — Database User Identifier is installed on JavaEE and .NET application servers as a separate container, where it injects the end-user information into the pooled database connection and associates every database session, SQL statement, and command with individual users.

Software-only solution, non-intrusive, and easy to deploy and maintain — As a software component, Database User Identifier is installed on the application servers and does not require any change to the underlying applications or database management system.

Actionable alerting on specific end-user activity — Information from Database User Identifier can be used by McAfee Database Activity Monitoring to create granular rules to specifically alert or block users based on application activity.
