Rapid ROI with Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On Suite

We live in interesting economic times. The housing market has been in a slump for several years now. If you are going into invest in a property today purely for rental purposes, then most likely you will look at how quickly you can break even. I recently read somewhere that the historical price to rent ratio for most housing markets in the continental states is around 15. The price to rent ratio is the price paid for a property divided by the annual rent on the property. So in other words, it takes about 15 years on a historical average basis to break even on an investment in rental property. That’s a long time I would say, don’t you agree?

However, our Oracle Identity Management solutions are designed to offer extremely quick Return on Investment (ROI) to our customers. Let’s take the example of Oracle Enterprise Single Sign-On (ESSO) Suite Plus. Oracle ESSO overcomes the huge burden of productivity losses and helpdesk costs incurred from forgotten passwords. In addition to that, we offer one more compelling reason for our customers to invest in Oracle ESSO. That is its rapid ROI.

Let’s take the example of an organization with about 7000 users where strong password policies are enforced. In many organizations, users are required to change their application passwords frequently (about once a quarter is not uncommon). An average helpdesk call associated with a password reset can cost $40. If such an organization deploys Oracle ESSO, they can eliminate their password headaches and overcome productivity losses that forgotten passwords can inflict. In addition to all that, Oracle ESSO delivers an ROI of 140% within the first 12 months of deployment. In other words, the organization can recover their investment and save additionally with the first year. And within the first five years, Oracle ESSO can save nearly $5 million in costs. Now that’s a very compelling investment.

Layering Enterprise Security with Access Management

As a security professional, one of the surveys I look forward to every year is the Data Breach Investigations Report published by Verizon. In the 2011 edition of the report, there were several glaring statistics. Verizon reports that 76% of all breaches compromised back end servers, 92% of attacks were not highly difficult and an alarming 96% of all security breaches were preventable through simple or intermediate controls. At Oracle, we could not agree more.

Across the enterprise security landscape there are several factors which are increasing risk for organizations. Traditional security has relied on defending the perimeter. But the proliferation of sophisticated attacks internally and externally demands sophisticated defense mechanisms that factor risk into the security equation. Secondly, the modern workforce is increasingly dynamic and mobile. When employees, partners, contractors, customers, suppliers etc all need access to critical applications, access to sensitive information should be restricted to authorized users. Finally, recent IT trends like cloud computing, and mobility have resulted in a proliferation of applications that employees need access to. Applications come in many different flavors (packaged, homegrown, SaaS, mobile apps etc) and when each app has its own notion of the user, how they connect and what they are authorized to do, this increases costs and complexity of integrating security for applications.

At Oracle, our Access Management solutions offer holistic security to help organizations safeguard against security threats, reduce risk, ensure compliance and security for applications, web services and data. In our upcoming webcast on Aug 23 sponsored by IOUG, Eric Leach from Oracle will discuss the latest innovations in Oracle Access Management solutions and how they can help you address your enterprise security and compliance goals.

Register here for the Aug 23 Webcast.
