PFCLScan Updated and Powerful features

We have just updated PFCLScan our companies database security scanner for Oracle databases to version 1.2 and added some new features and some new contents and more. We are working to release another service update also in the next couple of weeks that will add some updates to the reporting tool and language and also a new feature to allow the customer through point and click and change data values that are not known until they come to use them BUT we have already tests and checks in our standard audit policies that use these values. This will allow customers to enable additonal checks based on their own values and data. An example is that a customer may have a custom DBA role that they have designed for their own use. We don't know what that is in advance so cannot add a check to test its exists and is used only by the DBA team. The new PFCL.config screens and functionallity allows a user to add the values in a configuration screen and have custom checks work for them and so allows us to answer questions that we could not answer before.

I have also just written a blog post titled "Powerful features of PFCLScan" and published it on our PFCLScan product website. Please have a look.
