As SQL Server has become a cornerstone for supporting enterprise applications and as auditing needs have grown from recent legislation (SOX, HIPAA, DITSCAP, etc.) and internal needs, turn to the products in this category. These products offer solutions for data collection and reporting on auditing data from 1 database or across the entire enterprise. Much of the audited data can be configured at a SQL Server instance, database, object and login level with information related to data or code changes. Some of these products are devices that can be added to your infrastructure and other tools are purely software applications.
