This session provides an in-depth introduction to the new auditing feature introduced in SQL Server 2008. Audit is a much anticipated feature for security-sensitive customers, especially those who need to meet regulatory compliance needs. New auditing capabilities provide a number of advantages over previous auditing solutions. The key advantages include performance benefits, multiple log targets, and granular auditing, all of which are explored in detail. In addition to a discussion on the SQL Server Audit feature, this session provides demonstrations of end-to-end real world scenarios.
