On April 10, Amit Jasuja and his Product Management team will be hosting a webcast to explain all of the newest features in the PS2 release. (Register Here for the Webcast)
The PS2 release has 3 major themes: Cloud, Mobile & Simplification.
Oracle continues to expand our management capability for cloud applications, and one of the new features in the PS2 release is the Cloud Access Portal. The Cloud Access Portal provides a single console for managing access to cloud applications. Single sign-on, form-fill technology and federation capabilities, that runs on a full size browser, tablet or smart phone, make this new portal a must-have for organizations using cloud apps (who isn't?)
For Mobile application security, the PS2 release brings the introduction of the Mobile Security Suite. See our new web page devoted to specifically to mobile security.
Based on technology from the Bitzer Mobile acquisition, the Oracle Mobile Security suite allow organizations to separate and manage apps and data on mobile devices. Here's a link to the new data sheet
The final major theme is simplification. Oracle IDM is a secure, feature rich, highly scalable platform for protecting applications of all architectures. To make this platform easier to install, patch and upgrade, PS2 introduces an installation automation wizard. This wizard can capture details of an existing install, and save those parameters which can be used to clone an entire environment. Installation times are dramatically reduced, as are patching and upgrade tasks.
In addition to these three major themes PS2 also contains: improved OAuth support, strong authentication features, new Privileged Account management features, as well as customizations and UI improvements throughout.
