Want to Centraly Manage Oracle DB ?

Tired as a DBA to have to manage separate users in multiple Oracle DBs over and over?

Tired as a user to have multiple login names and password to remember?

Tired to have no self-service solution to reset password?

Tired to face complex auditing questions to find out which user has which privilege?

Concerned that if you want to remove access to a user you might miss removing for some database?

Concerned that you passwords would not meet the policy that you have globally defined?

Look into Oracle Enterprise User Security & Oracle Unified Directory for:

  • Users defined in one place
  • Assign user's privileges in one place
  • Delegating database user management to the help desk
  • Controlling user's passwords through a common identity store such as your Corporate Directory

User Authentication Stores can be any of:

  • Oracle Unified Directory
  • Oracle Internet Directory
  • Oracle Directory Server Enterprise Edition
  • Microsoft Active Directory
  • Novell eDirectory

You have choice for authentication to use:

  • User/Password
  • Kerberos

For more check out our White Paper here.
