Another day, another data breach. From the recent cyber attack on the Internal Revenue Service to news of a security bug called VENOM, it seems as if frequent cybersecurity incidents represent the new normal. What new methods can your security group deploy to augment traditional perimeter defenses? The key is to focus on your most valuable asset—data—and build a security strategy that protects data at its source.
Read about the new business-friendly user interface that simplifies the tasks associated with provisioning and managing today’s robust, identity-driven environments. Also learn about the expansion of mobile device management capabilities and a consolidated policy management framework that enables simplified provisioning of devices, applications, and access.
Putting defense in depth database protection in place is the first step to a security inside out data strategy. Even if an organization’s perimeter is breached, organizations can reduce risks by placing security controls around sensitive data, detecting and preventing SQL injection attacks, monitoring database activity, encrypting data at rest and in transit, redacting sensitive application data, and masking nonproduction databases. Read insights from Oracle Vice President of Security and Identity Solutions, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa, Alan Hartwell.
