I used the product two years ago, version 11 something as I remember.
It was not a good experience, lots of bugs, not a polished interface.
And when I tried to integrate it with solaris audit logs it simply won´t work.
I give it a 4/10, maybe the last version solved most of the bugs but I haven´t
tried it yet.

So I guess no one out there has any experience with this?

Does anybody have or have used Oracle's Audit Vault and Database Firewall? It
sounds intriguing in that in can protect our audit logs as well as offload
them. Supposedly there are built in reports to let you know of things happening
(haven't seen directly yet). We are a small private company with all
applications custom built.
My sales guy is trying to sell us on it and I have thought about it before. We
have a very small CPU footprint so I think the cost would be around $6k. Which
may be nothing to a lot of you but I still have to justify it.
Some of my questions.
Does it work as advertised?
Is it easy to setup an configure or is it a management nightmare?
Are there other factors to consider if using it.
Do you love it or is it worthless.
