@ManageEngine SQLDBManager Plus Adds SQL Server Audit Reports

ManageEngine, the real-time IT management company, today announced the availability of SQL Server Audit reports in SQLDBManager Plus, its availability and performance monitoring solution for Microsoft SQL Server. The move enables organizations to get out-of-the-box reports for all the server and database-related actions and helps to ensure that users adhere to compliance and security requirements.

ManageEngine is demonstrating SQLDBManager Plus and its new SQL Server Audit reports in booth K4 at PASS Summit 2014 being held through Nov. 7, 2014, at the Washington State Convention and Trade Center in Seattle.

Auditing was made an integral part of the SQL Server from version 2008 onward, enforcing strict business rules, minimizing risks and tightening security. Today, organizations are implementing SQL Server auditing to prevent data breaches, detect suspicious acts by external and internal sources, discover irregularities in database activities and meet legal requirements. As a result, the challenge for database administrators is to capture huge numbers of transactions while ensuring that compliance and security objectives are met.

“When companies are amassing data that must be accessed by multiple users in multiple locations, there is always a fear of data being mishandled,” said Aravindhan Jaganathan, product manager at ManageEngine. “Every organization has a higher responsibility of keeping their customers’ business-critical data safe. By keeping track of how data is being used, who is accessing it and when it changes, companies can better secure their data.”

Out-of-the-Box SQL Server Audit Reports

SQLDBManager Plus provides easy-to-use audit reports, ensuring business-critical databases have reliable protection against external and internal security threats. With instant historical reports, which are also customizable, database administrators can take action against unauthorized activities and maintain database security.

SQLDBManager Plus provides audit trails of users’ login-related and audit-related activities as well as their server-level and database-level actions. The out-of-the-box audit reports will list details including the event name, audit type, user login, and database and server instance.

Among their many benefits, the SQLDBManager Plus Audit reports let database administrators:

  • Maintain regulatory compliance and minimize risk.
  • Understand database activity and improve database performance and uptime.
  • Monitor database access and maintain database security.
  • Ensure the security of consumer data by having the data stored, formatted and ready for audits.
  • Get audit reports of all SQL servers in the network in a single console.

Pricing and Availability

SQLDBManager Plus prices start at $795 for up to five SQL server instances. A free, fully functional, 30-day trial version is available at Existing customers can start generating SQL Server Audit reports by upgrading to the latest build.
