Baked-in Security for the Holidays

Food with friends and family during the holidays is a very common tradition. It’s how we can connect with one another and enjoy traditional baked goods over conversation. In fact, I look forward to my wife’s wonderful figgy pudding that brings new meaning to the famous line in “We wish you a Merry Christmas.”

Like baking, security is an art and science. Both require planning from the beginning, adding the right ingredients that work well together, and integrating those ingredients for a final product. However, unlike baking, security is a continuous improvement process where you augment and add ingredients over time. Ovum’s new report, Oracle bakes security into its DNA does a great job outlining how Oracle does just that: bakes security in from the beginning, across people, process and technology, and improves on it over time.

Ovum joined us at our inaugural Oracle Security Summit in Santa Clara recently and has put together a solid overview of how Oracle addresses security:

“…analysts heard from two individuals with various responsibilities for security at Oracle…This is where we saw evidence of security being baked into the DNA of the organization, with a security-positive culture at the core. Yes, Oracle products are used extensively, but the technology is supplemented by strong processes and a swathe of people who are well-versed in security best practice. Security governance drives the overall ethos, and risk and compliance come into play extensively.”

Citing a still nascent market with much potential, Ovum goes on to describe Oracle’s ethos for security “of” the cloud and security “in” the cloud:

  • Security of the cloud – baking security into Oracle products and services. This includes how Oracle develops securely, integrates products to securely work together, and then deploys and maintains these products securely.  See more on this at Oracle Software Security Assurance
  • Security in the cloud – Oracle Security solutions that customers can use to detect and prevent security threats in hybrid cloud environments
