The Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX) of 2002 set new requirements for the integrity of the source data related to financial transactions and reporting. In particular, auditors are looking at regulated data residing in databases connected to enterprise applications such as SAP, Oracle E-Business Suite, PeopleSoft, and other Web Applications.
To prove the integrity of data, companies must extend audit processes to the financial information stored within corporate databases. To verify regulatory compliance, auditors look at multiple aspects of a database environment including: user management, authentication, separation of duties, access control, and audit trail.
This brief describes how SecureSphere provides audit, monitoring and reporting capabilities for Sarbanes-Oxley compliance.
