You can use Event Alerts to identify any type of SQL Server event data you are currently auditing. Event Alerts allow you to track suspicious events collected in your audit data stream. You can use these alerts to warn about potentially malicious activity or record routine activity on an audited instance or database.
For example, when a suspicious event is discovered, you can be notified by email so you can immediately diagnose and resolve the issue. You can also configure IDERA SQL Compliance Manager to write a custom message to the application event log so you have an ongoing record.
