Register Now for the Oracle ACE Product Briefing on Oracle Data Safe
Calling all ACEs! Mark your calendars for ACE Product Briefing: Oracle Data Safe November 5-6, 2020 with Russ Lowenthal, Senior Director PM, Core Database Security.

Oracle Data Safe is an exciting new security capability for identifying and reducing risk in Oracle Databases. First released during Oracle OpenWorld San Francisco in 2019, Data Safe has been continuously enhanced and is now available for all Oracle Databases, on-premises and in the Oracle Cloud. This includes Standard Edition, Enterprise Edition, Autonomous Database, and Exadata.

Join us for an exclusive look at the Data Safe cloud service – we will cover what the service does, how you can leverage for your cloud and on-premises databases. This session is being delivered by the Database Security product management team just for the ACEs! No marketing, no sales pitches.
