Formulate a Database Security Strategy

Although most organizations are taking stronger measures to protect their data, significant gaps still exist at the very core — their databases. Many don’t have a comprehensive database security strategy to defend against sophisticated attacks, track sensitive data, or even meet emerging regulatory requirements. In addition, organizations tend to focus on detective controls rather than preventive measures when it comes to database security.

KuppingerCole "Strongly Recommends" Oracle's Database Security Offerings

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.
