Rapidly recover your critical data and perform non-trigger audits – without disrupting business operations
Data is your organization’s most valuable asset. But mistakes can happen; data could easily be modified – or even deleted – from your database in error. While SQL Server 2008 maintains transaction logs that record any changes made to your databases, you won’t be able to read these logs to salvage your missing data without specialized third-party software.

In addition, regulatory requirements, such as Sarbanes-Oxley, and data protection laws require that you audit your databases. However, this type of audit could be invasive. As a result, you need to be able to perform transactional audits and analysis without disrupting your normal business operations.
ApexSQL Log 2008 delivers effective data recovery and data forensics capabilities as well as non-trigger, non-tracing audit functionality. Its ability to read SQL Server 2008 transaction logs means you’ll be able to find out exactly when, and by whom, erroneous database changes were made – and promptly reverse the damage.
ApexSQL Log 2008 not only reads online and detached transaction logs, and even transaction log backups, but also takes advantage of SQL Server 2008’s latest features, including its innovative date and time data types. It also enables you to export audit trails in a variety of formats, including CSV and XML. What’s more, with its in-built command line interface you can schedule jobs for out-of-hours, eliminating the likely impact on daily business operations.
