Symantec to unleash 'Big Brother' on the world

Hmm.. I am not sure how this system is helpful without the identity flowing with the request. Most of the applications that connect to database using proxy users and auditing/monitoring based on it is not very useful since it can not be tied back the the users that is running the query. So, we need the next generation monitoring and auditing applications to be able to track the actual user identity. I would be expecting the Application server providers and database providers to develop such technologies to audit and monitor the user id end-to-end. I am not sure how well the network security by them selves or Host security by themselves will be able to crack this market.
Let's see
