Sarbanes-Oxley, or SOX, is a complex and vague piece of legislation designed to protect against financial fraud. One of the more important provisions is around data access. Restricting that access doesn’t mean your development processes have to slow down or that data must be locked away. Instead, processes and controls can be put in place which allow for data acceleration, while also providing auditable trails on who has access.
Sarbanes-Oxley requires sensitive data to be encrypted, compressed or saved to a different file format. Access to financial information should also be limited to authorized users, who are unlikely to be members of your team.
SQL Provision provides repeatable and reliable ways of delivering compliant environments to dev and test, so that developers can benefit from using realistic data without running the risk of exposing personal details.
Data protection and audit trails are a core concept of SOX.
Database DevOps introduces managed processes that simplify SOX compliance by enabling software to be delivered in a consistent, reliable, and repeatable way, and by providing an audit trail of changes made.
