Educational Testing Service (ETS) creates and administers the GRE General Test, the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), Test of English for International Communication (TOEIC), the College Board's SAT, and is one of the world's largest private testing and research organizations. The not-for-profit group develops and administers more than 50 million achievement, admissions, academic, and professional tests yearly, at nearly 10,000 locations in more than 180 countries.
ETS had to adapt to changes in the regulatory landscape that specify the use of encryption to protect sensitive information collected from its millions of yearly test takers.
The company reduced risk by deploying Oracle Advanced Security into its Oracle Database environment to secure personally identifiable information, including social security and credit card numbers. By using Oracle Advanced Security with Transparent Data Encryption, ETS was able to save significant time and money by addressing two key requirements: no application changes and negligible performance overhead. It now successfully encrypts data-at-rest and on backups to a storage area network.
