Oracle Cloud Delivers end-to-end security for customers.
To help ensure customers’ data is secure from the core of infrastructure to the edge of the cloud, Oracle today announced new cloud security technologies. In addition to the self-securing and self-patching capabilities of Oracle Autonomous Database and with the integration of machine learning and intelligent automation to remediate threats, these new cloud services allow customers to improve the security of applications deployed on the next generation of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. The new cloud services include a Web Application Firewall (WAF) to protect against attacks on web traffic, Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) protection to stop outside parties from disrupting running applications, an integrated Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) which monitors and enforces secure configurations, and a Key Management Service (KMS) that allows customers to control the encryption of their data.
Emerging technologies like cloud, artificial intelligence and IoT, enable organizations to drive new innovations and reduce costs. However, with opportunities come increased risk including expanded attack surfaces. Security teams rely on manual processes and disparate tools that introduce human error and take an excessive amount of time to accurately detect and respond to threats and outages. Oracle has built integrated layers of defense that are designed to secure users, apps, data and infrastructure.
“Organizations are facing constant security threats from sophisticated actors who want to attack their applications and access their sensitive data,” said Don Johnson, senior vice president, product development, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. “The new solutions build on Oracle’s existing, strong security heritage and give customers always-on capabilities that make it easier than ever to achieve end-to-end security. These new security layers include highly automated detective, preventive, responsive, and predictive security controls that help mitigate data breaches, address regulatory compliance, and reduce overall risk.”
To help customers combat today’s sophisticated threats and protect their data, Oracle has introduced the following automated security solutions:
Web Application Firewall (WAF). The native WAF is designed to protect next generation Oracle Cloud Infrastructure applications against botnets, application attacks and DDoS attacks. The platform can then automatically respond to threats by blocking them and alerting security operations teams for further investigation.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) Protection. As part of the next generation of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, all Oracle data centers get automated DDoS attack detection and mitigation of high volume, Layer 3/4 DDoS attacks. This helps ensure the availability of Oracle network resources even when under sustained attack.
Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB). Keeping a cloud environment secure requires constant monitoring and enforcement to ensure that no one has set up an insecure network or left data unprotected. Oracle Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) constantly checks OCI environments to help make sure that corporate security practices are being followed. It comes with preconfigured policies and controls so that customers can deploy applications faster while reducing security and operational risk. CASB also leverages machine learning-based behavioral analytics to predict threats.
Key Management Service. Oracle Key Management enables enterprises to encrypt data using keys that they control and offers centralized key management and key lifecycle monitoring capabilities. The solution delivers partitions in highly available and certified Hardware Security Modules that are isolated per customer. It is ideal for organizations that need to verify for regulatory compliance and security governance purposes that their data is encrypted where it is stored.
Oracle Cloud Infrastructure is the enterprise Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) platform. Companies of all sizes rely on Oracle Cloud to run enterprise and cloud native applications with mission-critical performance and core-to-edge security. By running both traditional and new workloads on a comprehensive cloud that includes compute, storage, networking, database, and containers, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure dramatically increases operational efficiency and lowers total cost of ownership.
