Actually, it is the same product as McAfee purchased Sentrigo.

Actually now I look at the description "Database Vulnerability Scanner" that looks like Sentrigo functionality that we do use and I described below. On Feb 18, 2014 7:19 AM, "Niall Litchfield" <<>> wrote:

We use DAM here and I'm pretty happy with it. You will likely find, much as anyone who has ever turned on auditing finds, a large number of alerts to start with until you get your rules sorted - each *use* of a privilege or potentially insecure feature gets flagged - so you probably want to limit access to the console to start with. If you search for Sentrigo Hedgehog you'll no doubt find more user reviews and opinion. We don't yet use it against SQL and we don't use the other product you mention so I'll not comment on them On Feb 17, 2014 8:01 PM, "Scott Canaan" <<>> wrote: Our security office is looking at having the McAfee Database Activity Monitor and McAfee Database Vulnerability Scanner installed on all of our Oracle and SQL Server databases and servers. This is not the standalone configuration, but the configuration with the ePo server that would collect all of the information from each server and database and consolidate the information into a standard console that many people would have access to.

Has anyone had any experience with either or both of these products? If so, do you have any concerns about the level of access the user has on the server and in the database?

Thank you,
