(AppSecInc) has announced Oracle on Linux support in AppRadar(TM) --the industry's most comprehensive database activity monitoring and security auditing solution.
The award-winning AppRadar solution remains the industry's only offering to provide world-class database security with intelligent, real-time monitoring and auditing to defend against application vulnerabilities while ensuring strict adherence to regulatory requirements Regulatory requirements are part of the process of drug discovery and drug development. Regulatory requirements describe what is necessary for a new drug to be approved for marketing in any particular country. .

By extending product support to include Oracle databases running on Linux, AppSecInc continues to respond to the security requirements of today's heterogeneous enterprise environments.
AppRadar is unique in the breadth of its real-time monitoring coverage, support for both host- and network-based deployment models, and the context it provides to optimize security and compliance efforts. While monitoring millions of events as they happen, AppRadar protects databases against internal and external attacks, alerting on abuse or misuse without degrading database performance. As a result of its context-driven approach to database activity monitoring, AppRadar provides far more than just generic logging, auditing, or reporting facilities, but rather helps organizations cut through the clutter of meaningless alerts and focus on both the critical security issues and significant audit events that portend por·tend

3. Ted Julian, vice president of marketing and strategy at AppSecInc, the decision to support Oracle on Linux within the AppRadar solution was driven by customer demand: "Oracle on Linux support is an extension of our goal to help organizations, particularly those with complex, heterogeneous environments Using hardware and system software from different vendors. Organizations often use computers, operating systems and databases from a variety of vendors. Contrast with homogeneous environment. , extend security to their database applications with industry-leading platform and deployment flexibility."
Mr. Julian continued: "Throughout the history of the AppSecInc product suite, we've offered broad support across the platforms most prevalent within large enterprises -- Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server A relational DBMS from Microsoft that is a major component of the Windows Server System. It is Microsoft's high-end client/server database and is closely integrated with Microsoft Visual Studio and the Microsoft Office System. , IBM (International Business Machines Corporation, Armonk, NY, www.ibm.com) The world's largest computer company. IBM's product lines include the S/390 mainframes (zSeries), AS/400 midrange business systems (iSeries), RS/6000 workstations and servers (pSeries), Intel-based servers (xSeries) DB2, and Sybase. And in the case of AppRadar, we've done so without requiring them to choose a single deployment model by offering both host- and network-based for maximum deployment flexibility. By extending AppRadar's award-winning, market-proven monitoring to include Oracle on Linux, organizations can now include these systems in their response to today's mounting regulatory and security requirements."
