SoftTree Adds Enterprise-class Features to its Flagship DB Audit Expert.

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- DB Audit Expert(TM) v3.1 Delivers New Support for Centralized Audit Repositories, Repository Based Alerting and Reporting Services to Help Mid- to Large-Size Companies Dramatically Ease the Burden of Compliance with Internal and External Audit Standards

SoftTree Technologies, a leading provider of management and administration solutions for SQL, today announced version 3.1 of its flagship DB Audit Expert product. Version 3.1 introduces new enterprise-class support for centralized audit repositories. Designed in partnership with several enterprise customers, v3.1 enables mid- to large-size companies to streamline auditing and compliance operations by using a central repository for all SQL databases in the enterprise (Oracle, SQL Server, DB2, and Sybase). Audit data from different database systems is normalized to a unified format to enable enterprise-wide alerting and reporting from the central repository. Individual database logs are still available for departmental auditing purposes. With v3.1, DB Audit Expert provides a cost-effective solution for companies using multiple database systems to meet internal and external audit standards such as Sarbanes-Oxley, GLBA, HIPAA, BASEL II and The USA Patriot Act.

The industry's first multi-platform database auditing solution for Oracle, Sybase, DB2 and Microsoft SQL Server, the product satisfies the needs of companies large and small. DB Audit Expert enables database and system administrators, security administrators, auditors and operators to track and analyze any database activity including database security, access and usage, data creation, change or deletion. "Our ability to normalize multiple database audit trails into a common format makes DB Audit really unique said Dmitriy Evinshteyn, chief technical officer at SoftTree Technologies. " Any company using multiple database systems will benefit tremendously from DB Audit's ability to provide a summary view of all database activity in the enterprise," said Evinshteyn.

With hundreds of customers around the globe across all industries, companies such as Deloitte & Touche Tax Technologies, Holland America Cruise Lines and The Children's Hospital of Boston rely on DB Audit Expert to address their database auditing and compliance requirements. DB Audit Expert v3.1 strengthens the products already compelling auditing and compliance functions including:

--Monitoring of regular and back-door access

--Auditing and continuous compliance

--Centralized auditing control of multiple database systems

--Real-time performance monitoring and diagnostics

--Real-time email alerting

--Regulatory Compliance reporting

Key new features provided in DB Audit Expert v3.1 include:

Central Audit Repository-- Audit data from disparate systems is automatically harvested from remote databases for archival or consolidation into a central audit database. This significantly reduces the time and resources required for auditing disperse data collections and verifications and provides a trusted, immutable source of audit data.

Unified Alerting & Reporting - DB Audit Expert goes beyond traditional auditing approaches by providing centralized monitoring and alerting of all data access, updates, data structure modifications, and changes to security permissions.

"Our newest release of DB Audit Expert represents a truly enterprise-class database audit and compliance solution for SQL said Evinshteyn. "We have partnered with our largest customers, leveraging their collective knowledge and expertise, to develop a product that satisfies their SOX compliance requirements. This has enabled us to build a powerful and comprehensive auditing solution that will help companies dramatically ease the burden of compliance with internal and external audit standards."
