News Flashes

Application Security, Inc. (AppSecInc), a provider of database security solutions, is introducing a new enterprise data security capability, DbProtect Active Response. "Active Response allows us to react in real time to policy violations with a tailored approach that is governed, based on specific events and policy violations we see and the environment that we are operating in," Josh Shaul, CTO of AppSecInc, tells 5 Minute Briefing. "Different customers in different systems will define that kind of thing in their own way, but what is most typical is administrative users accessing and modifying data in the systems they manage." That type of activity is usually out of bounds and is the kind of thing that organizations will typically define as a policy violation - whether it is intentional or accidental - and want to respond, he notes.

Noetix Corp., a provider of business intelligence software and services for enterprise applications, has introduced NoetixViews for Oracle E-Business Suite version 6.1 which includes new views and key performance, security, and administration enhancements for improved operational reporting. For Noetix customers who have created parent-child hierarchies for use in Oracle Financial Statement Generator (FSG) reports, the latest release of NoetixViews now extends these hierarchies to the customer's BI tool of choice via Noetix Generator.
