Data is one of the most valuable assets in modern business. Data continues to grow exponentially, and organizations rely on it for critical activities such as transaction processing and analytics. 

Properly protecting data and managing cyber risk are security priorities for any organization: In 2020, data breaches resulted in a 141% year-over-year increase in the number of records exposed compared to 2019. In addition, the Identity Theft Research Center reported that as of October 2021, there were already 1,291 breaches compared to 1,108 in all of 2020.

Oracle’s goal is to empower every organization to take advantage of the cloud’s agility, flexibility, and scalability without compromising their own data—or their customers’ data. That goal has driven Oracle’s security-first design philosophy, and it’s why we bake security into all cloud solutions at the architectural level. Oracle takes a proactive approach to cybersecurity that fortifies full-stack protection and a secure-by-design platform. This commitment to data security and integrity is why so many organizations trust their data in the cloud with Oracle.

Our new ebook Why customers chose Oracle for their cloud security, showcases stories from across Oracle’s security service portfolio—including cloud infrastructure security, database security, identity and access management, and application security. 

Read below for highlights, and access the full ebook here.

Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is a modern public cloud built with layers of security that are architected to help protect organizations’ most sensitive and valuable data. By facing the cybersecurity skills shortage head-on and adopting cloud technologies that require minimal human intervention, organizations could encounter fewer errors and optimize their resource management.
