Announcing the General Availability of SQL Compliance Manager 5.7

by Feb 5, 2020

We’re excited to announce the release of SQL Compliance Manager 5.7.

SQL Compliance Manager is a comprehensive database auditing solution that monitors and tracks changes to SQL Server objects and data, and sends alerts on suspicious activity. SQL Compliance Manager also generates audit reports to demonstrate compliance with regulatory and data security requirements such as SOX, PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, CIS, NERC, DISA/STIG and FERPA.

SQL Compliance Manager 5.7

This release focused heavily on improving the reporting capabilities in SQL Compliance Manager. We added new report features, new filters and columns and new reports. One of the most powerful features of SQL Compliance Manager is the ability to produce a variety of audit reports. This new release will make it easier for customers to access and customize the audit information that has been collected.

Highlights of SQL Compliance Manager 5.7

Product Updates

  • SQL Server 2019 and Windows 2019 Support – SQL Compliance Manager 5.7 is the first release to support SQL Server 2019 and Windows 2019
  • Report Tree Updates – The Report tree has been updated to show Alerts/History separate from the Configuration Reports so you can get to the kind of report you need more quickly
