6.2 New Features

Quality Enhancements

Enhanced User Experience with Email and Summary Notifications

SQL Compliance Manager 6.2 improved to determine if an Alert Rule has been configured as 'Email Notification' or 'Email Summary Notification', users no longer are required to edit the alert rule. The rule description has been enhanced to make it convenient to distinguish between the two without the need for alert rule modifications.

Command Line Interface (CLI) Enhancement

SQL Compliance Manager 6.2 upgraded to provide a CLI command line for registering a server, grooming, archiving, and verifying audit data integrity - version 6.2 is now augmented with CLI for enabling and disabling auditing servers.


SQL Compliance Manager 6.2 improved and added the number of rows at the end of the reports to ease access to the information contained in each report.

Security Enhancements


SQL Compliance Manager 6.2 enhanced security by deploying a strong Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm to meet the latest high standards of our large enterprise customers. The Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is an algorithm that uses the same key to encrypt and decrypt protected data. Instead of a single round of encryption, data is put through several rounds of substitution, transposition, and mixing to make it harder to compromise.
