The Solution for Auditing Read Access of Sensitive Data Files on the IBM i

DVM (Database View Monitor) gives you complete control over sensitive information by telling you who has viewed sensitive records in a file, and when and how those records were accessed.  This unique capability makes DVM a powerful member of the Cilasoft Security Suite for IBM i. 

This innovative solution expands the audit process beyond mere database change auditing to include real-time database read-access events, helping you to more easily meet the stringent data confidentiality requirements for PCI-DSS, HIPAA and other compliance regulations.   


Without needing to change your existing applications, DVM offers total read access control for sensitive data at both the record and field level.

With DVM you can:
  • Block and/or alert upon confidential data access outside of normal application processes
  • Block and/or alert upon specific data access of a specific file (managerial salaries, medical data, data for public figures, etc.)
  • Produce pertinent reports of viewed records showing how data was accessed (IP address, current user, call stack, etc.)
  • Specify only the fields you need to see on the report, not the entire record, which keeps your confidential data truly confidential

DVM logs and sends alerts about unauthorized read accesses according to precisely defined selection criteria — all in real time and with limited impact on machine performance.



  • Simulation mode – test selection criteria in advance to ensure day-to-day operations are not compromised
  • User-definable selection criteria allows you to fine-tune read-access detection and alerts
  • Optimized retrieval of contextual information
  • Performance impact minimized via intelligent mechanisms (i.e.: automatic job hold in case of excess execution time, etc.)
  • Blocking mode in some circumstances can prevent users from seeing specific information
  • Large vocabulary for rule definition
  • Multiple report types available (PDF, XLS, CSV) 

  • Meet the most stringent regulatory requirements for confidential data
  • Reduce the risk of accidental data disclosure
  • Deter fraudulent activity
