Oracle Database Vault is certified with PeopleSoft

I just saw a news item tonight on Yahoo titled "Oracle(R) Database Vault Delivers Unrivaled Secure Data Access Control for PeopleSoft Applications" -

"REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., Feb. 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- In response to customer demand, Oracle (Nasdaq: ORCL - News) today announced that Oracle® Database Vault, the industry's most advanced security product designed to protect and limit access to sensitive data and applications, is now certified with Oracle's PeopleSoft Enterprise applications"

That Oracles Database Vault is now certified with PeopleSoft 8.4 and later. Database vault looks like a really good addition to the Oracle database as it finally solves the issue of preventing DBA and any other maintenance staff accessing the data they are looking after in an Oracle database. The product enforces segregation of duties and helps with compliance. I saw a presentation last year in March at the PSOUG event in Seattle by Steve Enevold about Database Vault and Audit Vault and was immediately impressed.
