Cloud Security Perspectives and Insights

New Paper Explains Oracle Public Cloud Security

Security: Top Priority 

Security is a top priority for Oracle Cloud solutions. Oracle’s vision is to create the most secure and trusted public cloud infrastructure and platform services for enterprises and government organizations. Oracle’s mission is to build secure public cloud infrastructure and platform services where there is greater trust - where Oracle customers have effective and manageable security to run their workloads with more confidence, and build scalable and trusted secure cloud solutions.

In a new whitepaper, titled Oracle Infrastructure and Platform Cloud Services Security, Oracle's cloud security philosophy is explained, which includes our shared cloud security model that we have with our customers.

The paper focuses on shared and service-specific security capabilities of the following services:

  • Oracle Compute Cloud Service
  • Oracle Storage Cloud Service
  • Oracle Network Cloud Service
  • Oracle Java Cloud Service
  • Oracle Database Cloud Service – Enterprise Edition

Cloud Security Capabilities

As we talk to customers, they desire the following security capabilities. The paper, therefore, is organized to explain how we address:


  • Control: Security mechanisms to control who can access data and under which conditions
  • Auditing: Ability to audit resources to maintain their security configuration
  • Visibility: Logs providing visibility into accounts and resources
  • Assurance: Ability to independently verify how data is being stored, accessed, and protected against unauthorized access and modification
  • Security: Services that are designed, coded, tested, deployed, and managed securely
  • Out-of-the-box integration with existing Oracle technologies: Seamless integration with existing Oracle solutions such as identity and access management 

Fully Committed to Cloud

The protection of customer data is a primary design consideration for all of Oracle’s public cloud infrastructure and services. Oracle Cloud was developed to offer secure infrastructure and platform services that are used by Oracle customers to run their mission-critical enterprise workloads and store their data. Oracle believes that it has the right security philosophy, strategy, proven expertise, and resources to protect customer data and enable customers to build secure and private cloud solutions. Oracle is fully committed to continuing to invest in security capabilities to create the most secure public cloud infrastructure and trusted cloud services. These capabilities enable Oracle customers to have effective and manageable security, to run their workloads with more confidence, and to build trusted hybrid cloud solutions.
