Compliance Manager includes a number of new features including access certification, which captures and consolidates identity and access data and provides an audit trail. Users also can set Compliance Manager to validate access controls based on an event, such as a job transfer entered into a human-resources system. Other features include the Entitlement Glossary, which uses plain English to describe access privileges; a segregation of duty features; and remediation tracking.
Sun Compliance Manager costs $75,000 plus a charge per user based on volume.
Oracle released Adaptive Access Manager 10g Release 3, which is designed to protect against fraud, identity theft, phishing, and keylogging. Earlier this year, the vendor updated its compliance and auditing tools.
Highlighting Release 3 are four new features: auto learning, which detects a user's normal working patterns, then watches for anomalies that might indicate fraudulent use; investigation management, which provides advanced service-log reviews and analysis; transaction administration for examining and analyzing the technologies used in transactions; and support for 20 languages. Oracle also has embedded a copy of Oracle Business Intelligence Publisher in the software.
