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.

In a recently released report, leading European-based analyst firm KuppingerCole "strongly recommends" that organizations with Oracle Databases in production should consider Oracle's database security offerings. "From the KuppingerCole perspective, Oracle currently has the broadest portfolio in the market and delivers leading-edge products in all areas of database security," writes the report's author, Martin Kuppinger, founder and principal analyst, KuppingerCole.
Well-known for their thought leadership in information security and governance, risk management, and compliance, KuppingerCole decided to focus their attention on database security. Kuppinger writes that "the need for database security solutions is obvious," and explains that a significant number of data breaches and data theft occur at the databases level.
In the report, Kuppinger evaluated solutions such as Oracle Advanced Security, Oracle Database Vault, and Oracle Label Security, which run within the Oracle Database, as well as solutions such as the new Oracle Database Firewall and Oracle Audit Vault, which run outside the database and support both Oracle and non-Oracle databases.
