Oracle Database Vault

Oracle Database Vault reduces the risk of insider and outsider threats and addresses common compliance requirements by:

Preventing privileged users (DBA) from accessing sensitive application data
Preventing compromised privileged users accounts from being used to steal sensitive data or make unauthorized changes to databases and applications
Providing strong controls inside the database over who can do what and controls over when and how applications, data and databases can be accessed
Providing privilege analysis for all users and applications inside the database to help achieve least privilege model and make the databases and applications more secure

Payment Card Industry (PCI), Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX), EU Privacy Directive and the Healthcare Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) all require strong internal controls on access, disclosure or modification of sensitive information that could lead to fraud, identity theft, financial irregularities and financial penalties. Oracle Database Vault helps customers comply with these regulations by providing strong controls inside the database over who can do what and controls over when and how applications, data and databases can be accessed.

Oracle Database Vault has been certified with numerous Oracle and partner enterprise applications including Oracle E-Business Suite, Oracle PeopleSoft, Oracle Siebel, and SAP. The certification includes out-of-the-box security policies specific for each application taking into consideration their install, run-time, and maintenance requirements. The security policies can either be downloaded or requested via support.
