* comparison capabilities throughout the UI to highlight differences between databases and system snapshots
* ability to define security standards and report compliance with regards to those
* enhancements to the zSecure Admin Access Monitor component, allowing for example easy conversion of universal access to access list entries and simulating access through system-wide operations
