Preventive controls on Db Admin activity

Last Modified: 2013-12-19
To enable auditing on database admin activities is considered a detective control not independent of database Admins own realm.

Is there a way we can audit Db admin activities independently and can push in preventive controls rather than just detective?

I am aware that there is a DB vault available from Oracle but that works from 10G ent. edition upwards. We are using 9i standard edition.

For 9i, DB vaults support is listed only for Sun Solaris Edition and not windows :(
