Oracle launches solution to enhance data security

NEW DELHI: IT major Oracle today launched a new set of solutions aimed at helping enterprises that are planning to embrace cloud, mobile and social technologies as part of their business practice.

The ‘Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 2’ further strengthens Oracle’s integrated enterprise security solutions spanning hardware, database, middleware, and enterprise applications, Oracle Vice President (Technology – APAC) Sundar Ram Gopalakrishnan told reporters here.

“Organisations today, while recognising the need for an end-to-end security solution, fail to look at security comprehensively until they’ve had a security breach. There are often security gaps since there is no centralised management or reporting, with independent owners for every solution,” he added.

Oracle’s end-to-end security solutions offer the lowest total cost of ownership and meet compliance needs across IT infrastructure, data, applications and identity management, Gopalakrishnan said.

In India, Oracle is focusing on sectors like telecom, banking, financial services and insurance and government as these sectors own extensive classified or confidential data and are more prone to security threats.

“These sectors are also guided by strong regulatory compliances. Oracle with its full spectrum of security solutions is in a strong position to address the needs of these demanding industries,” he said.

According to a recent survey, respondents said they felt they were are inadequately protecting sensitive data and database infrastructure.

About 60 per cent respondents said they have or are likely to have a data breach over the next 12 months and a majority said the stolen records were from database servers.

“Oracle offers complete identity management solutions that enable enterprises to secure critical applications and sensitive data, lower operational costs, and comply with regulatory requirements,” he said.

Some of the Indian customers using Oracle’s security solutions include Hindustan Petroleum Corporation Ltd (HPCL), TVS Motor Company and Aircel Ltd.
