Security in Oracle Database 12c Gives Reason for Customers to Upgrade

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.

Webcast: Database Activity Auditing, Alerting, and Reporting with Oracle Audit Vault

Although almost all organizations use native database auditing, few actually monitor this audit trail for threats or conduct regular database audits to quickly detect and remediate potential security problems. Join Tammy Bednar, Senior Principal Product Manager at Oracle, for this webcast and learn how to make the most of native database auditing by using Oracle Audit Vault.

Oracle Audit Vault automatically collects and consolidates Oracle and non-Oracle database audit trails into a centralized secure repository, detects and alerts on suspicious activity in real-time, monitors privileged users, simplifies compliance reporting with built-in and custom reports, and streamlines your database audit process with key capabilities like reports scheduling, attestation, and archiving. Register now for the webcast
