The acquisition of Thor Technologies is a union of the industry's leading enterprisewide user provisioning solution with Oracle's suite of best-in-class identity and access management offerings.
Thor Technologies' user provisioning solution automates the process of creating, monitoring, and managing user accounts and the associated security privileges. It can help companies lower the cost of user and password administration, protect against security vulnerabilities, and make it easier to audit and track compliance with regulatory and organizationwide security policies.
This acquisition will also enhance Oracle's product capabilities and enable broader and more-seamless application integration, leading to lower costs of deployment and improvements in user experience. In addition, Thor's products will be supported on a global basis by a full range of development, technical support, and professional services from Oracle.
Together, Oracle and Thor Technologies will further enhance Oracle's market-leading security infrastructure and bring to market the industry's most robust, heterogeneous, and complete identity and SOA management offerings.
