Security in Oracle Database 12c Gives Reason for Customers to Upgrade
By Troy Kitch-Oracle on Oct 02, 2013
The latest edition of Oracle Magazine, headlined with Plug into the Cloud, gives many reasons for customers to upgrade to the latest release of Oracle Database 12c .
In the article Time to Upgrade, Michelle Malcher, President of the Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG) and Oracle ACE Director, says "Oracle Database 12c is packed with several new and enhanced security features. A great new security feature is privilege analysis, which allows DBAs to get to the bottom of what permissions are really needed and used. How much time is that going to save in audit reports and managing the security for least privilege?"
To prepare for the latest edition of Oracle Database, Malcher had
an opportunity sit down and beta test the latest features with others. During this time, we captured some of her comments,
along with other beta testers, about another new feature: data
redaction (see below video).
She goes on to say "Redaction is another security features that is easy to implement and probably will save a lot of time previously spent having to mask data in different environments or code solutions to hide private data and information. Setting up a comprehensive redaction policy for users, applications, and environments can further protect sensitive data.
