Here is an embedded copy of the slides. In addition, there were a few audience questions during todays webcast and I have captured the answers below.
Q: Thinking of fraud and Identity Management - how can Identity help address this ?
A: In addition to our adaptive access offering which Gail spoke of, there are other things organizations should look at. Organizations should look at Oracle Identity Analytics to provide review of access rights to prevent and detect access that is inappropriate. In addition, organizations should look at automated provisioning to help automatically remediate access violations that are detected.
Q: What cloud based applications does Oracle support today.
A: Today we have connectors that support the big brands: Google, Salesforce, Facebook etc. and we provide the ability to extend our connectors to support OAUTH enabled and standards based access via cloud providers. Oracle On-demand today deploys the Oracle connectors in house and has the expertise to setup and manage these connectors as well.
Q: How is Oracle's cloud services different or more secure compared toother providers ?
A: Oracle is at the forefront of security services. We have been in the business for a number of years. Oracle as a company is security focused. We look at controls across all of the technologies and employ a consistent operational discipline aligned with the ISO framework. We have been PCI compliant for a long time and we process for the federal government. This provides the highest level of security assurance.
