Built upon 30 years of security experience, the Oracle Database provides defense-in-depth security controls that enable organizations to transparently protect data. By leveraging these Oracle Database features and optional products, organizations can safeguard data, ensure regulatory compliance, and achieve business goals such as consolidation, globalization, right sourcing, and cloud computing while still maintaining scalability, performance, and availability.
ORACLE ADVANCED SECURITY
Oracle Advanced Security provides an easy-to-deploy and comprehensive solution for protecting communication to and from the Oracle Database using both standards-based network encryption and robust native encryption/integrity algorithms. Data is automatically encrypted when it is written to disk and automatically decrypted when accessed by the application. Key management is built-in, eliminating the complex task of creating, managing and securing encryption keys.
Oracle Database Vault is a security option for the Oracle Database that provides flexible and highly adaptable security controls— including realms, command rules, factors, separation of duty, and reporting—that can be transparently applied to existing application environments. Together, these controls transparently increase security around existing applications without requiring changes to the application code.
