Are you doing less with less?
By Roxana Bradescu on Aug 31, 2009
Unfortunately it seems like many organizations are when it comes to security. Although data security is still top priority for all the IT groups I talk to, their budgets are flat, and quite frankly they are failing to keep up. A lot of what they do is still manual and reactive.
Secure database configuration is a great example. Many organizations still run point solution tools or home grown scripts on an ad-hoc basis. When they run them they have to manually compare results to the last time they ran them to see changes, and often times the scripts and tools don't flag security vulnerabilities like unchanged default passwords or open ports. Much less create tickets so that the problems can be fixed. This whole process can be easily automated with Oracle Configuration Management Pack.
But this was just one example. Where I was going with this is that in these challenging economic times, IT groups need to make the most of their resources and approach database security holistically and with budget in mind. To actually do more with less, your organization needs to formulate a comprehensive database security strategy, an effective plan, and tools that will save you time and money. Sounds good, right?
