Why Read This Report

In Forrester's 147-criteria evaluation of database auditing and real-time protection vendors, we found that the market is rife with mature products. IBM, Imperva, and Sentrigo lead the pack because of their strong user activity auditing, policy management, real-time protection, and application support capabilities as well as their forward-thinking strategies. Application Security, Oracle, and Fortinet are Strong Performers; their products have reporting, real-time detection and protection, and user-activity auditing capabilities that are slightly weaker than capabilities of the Leaders' offerings. However, all of the products we evaluated are mature database auditing and real-time protection solutions. Given this, rather than basing their choice of database auditing and real-time protection product on traditional auditing functions, application development and delivery professionals should base their decision on the more cutting-edge functionality, such as real-time attack activity blocking, privileged-user monitoring, drilldown analytics, and centralization repository.
