Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall 20.4 – live and in action!

Event: Connect 2021
Stream: Architecture, Cloud Database & Technology

In this session we will perform a deep dive into Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall (AVDF) version 20.4 and experience a live real-time demonstration of Oracle AVDF as it monitors both Oracle and non-Oracle database traffic to detect and block security threats via Database Firewall. We will also view how we can very easily create audit policies, configure alerts, detect both access as well as modification of sensitive data along with generating and viewing the extensive audit and compliance reports from the content-rich AVDF web console. Benefits: Learn about the Audit Vault and Database Firewall architecture as well as the key AVDF features and options available on the AVDF web console and most importantly experience hands-on and in real-time how to create audit policies, configure alerts and block undesirable SQL traffic!
