Capturing the detailed actions of privileged users is even more critical in today’s business environment. Security and compliance issues also exist with third-parties including Cloud Providers, Service Providers and ISVs. And every major compliance regulation requires organizations to document what users actually do with the privileges and rights granted to them and how their actions impact the IT environment.
This research paper covers how to solve the security, compliance, and third party access challenges organizations face when auditing and monitoring UNIX, Linux and Windows systems; and why traditional approaches like log rollup tools alone will fail to meet requirements of today’s demanding IT environment.

Cloud computing has ushered in a golden era for software companies. The cloud’s low barrier to entry allows
creativity to flourish, especially for software developers who are creating applications directly on cloud-based
infrastructure. Cloud-based infrastructure enables developers to do what they love: solve business problems and
bring innovative new ideas to life, using their choice of tools. In a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, applications
can easily be deployed to a cloud service, and delivered to clients who appreciate the ease of access and low cost.
The cloud model relieves the developer and the enterprise IT professional from the burden of managing or
maintaining capital-intense infrastructure.
But the cloud’s low barrier to entry also allows competing software providers to enter the market every day,

SaaS represents an opportunity for ISVs to fundamentally transform their
business to deliver greater value to customers, sell software to a broader
range of customers, and streamline their internal operations. The market for
software is quickly changing to demand this mode of delivery, as software
buyers start considering total ownership costs, ease of use, and flexibility
in their purchase decisions. ISVs need to prepare for such a transition. This
paper will discuss the benefits that stem from changes to an ISV’s business
model (how it competes in the marketplace) and operating model (how
the ISV executes on its business model) as well as suggestions on how
to prepare for a SaaS transition, based on the experience of 20 ISVs who
successfully transitioned from a traditional software licensing and delivery
model to SaaS.
