Application Auditor

Protect and Empower

Application Auditor continuously identifies high-risk and non-compliant transactions in Oracle E-Business Suite. That protects your enterprise. It also reduces audit costs and complexity. AA empowers auditors, so they work fast, without help from IT.

Detect, Prevent, Notify, and Review

AA enables you to Detect, Prevent, Notify, and Review unauthorized transactions within your Oracle database to ensure key governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) controls are being followed.  AA screens both front end application-based transactions and back end SQL statements that violate defined audit criteria.

Using Continuous Controls Monitoring (CCM), AA detects table level record-based transactions (DML) as well as database dictionary-based operations (DDL). In combination, you can safeguard business transactions, master data, and EBS configurations, and ensure software integrity.

When AA audits a transaction or statement that violates the criteria, you can investigate and remediate it immediately.

Track IT Support Activities

Use AA when you must allow application support staff to access production environments, and you need a compensating control to prove they only performed authorized activities.  AA can create audit trails of support staff transactions.

Extend Productivity

In conjunction with Certify Application Auditor, you can approve authorized transactions systematically and attach appropriate documentation. External auditors will rely more on your organization’s controls, which may reduce audit costs.

See ProView for Application Auditor for additional productivity capabilities.
