Data-centric audit and protection (DCAP) for databases is now a mature governance technology. Why is one DCAP product better than another?

IRI Chakra Max provides fast, robust control, monitoring, protection, and auditing functionality in high traffic environments, but has no impact on database performance. It does not need an appliance, and can run with (or without) the total data management platform, IRI Voracity.

Use Chakra Max in multiple, state-of-the-art connection modes to balance the speed and strength of your database firewalls across the enterprise.
