securing data

Security is an interesting issue these days. I've taken many classes on

securing a computer, securing a network, and securing web applications.

It never occurred to me that you might want to secure data inside a

database. Oracle introduced a new product a few months ago that makes

sense. If you store your HR information, military secrets, or financial

data in a database and oursource your DBA responsibilities, you have

given away the keys to the kingdom. Many companies are starting to

outsource specific functions like database administration because

having a full time, fully qualified DBA on staff is expensive and hard

to keep busy. The Database Vault product from Oracle addresses this

issue. I personally like the viewlets that can be seen at Database

page. They helped me understand how to use the product

as well as its value.
