Benefits of InControl integration
What are the benefits of integrating with InControl? By providing a centralized location, the InControl console helps users manage and track compliance and vulnerability issues with ease. InControl receives reports from
ora_secured and other security modules, offering an integrated view and management system for compliance and vulnerabilities not only for your Oracle databases, but also for Windows, Linux, Microsoft SQLServer, Postgres, IBM DB2 databases, and cloud environments.
Overall, InControl is an essential tool for organizations seeking to maintain regulatory compliance and ensure the security and reliability of their Oracle databases and infrastructure. Its advanced algorithms, user-friendly design, and customizable alerts and notifications make it a perfect solution for organizations of all sizes and industries.

2. Per node per year subscription
Our basic licensing model requires a subscription per node. The subscription is valid for a year. To make this work, we need you to send us the node name of the system you want to use the module on. (Not the puppetmaster, but the system where the agent is running.). Based on this information we will send you a file containing the entitlement for your node(s). You can purchase the entitlement in the shop or you can contact us. After you have ordered this module, you will receive an entitlement file. This file contains the information needed to run the software on your Puppet machine (agents).
