It checks many boxes when it comes to security. It allows you to see all the DB activity that goes on, report on it, and send it to SIEM. The analytics part extends this product even more. The investigation dashboard makes it easier to find outliers or specifics without running queries or reports.

  • Although it is a relatively simple software to use, it requires a bit of knowledge, which a new user cannot do without consolidating some previous knowledge.
  • The technical support team is not ideal; although, on many occasions we have not needed their help, the times we have interacted it has left us wanting more.

This software is not the easiest to use in all work environments, each department has some difficulties accessing and managing some functions, it can be considered a complex softy, but I consider it necessary to have it in the company due to its security qualities of warm cans, it offers exactly what it promises but with a little difficulty in its configuration.
