Data is the most valuable currency in modern business and, as the 7.9 billion records exposed through data breaches in 2019 suggest, cybercrime’s greatest prize. It’s unsurprising, then, that some organizations still have reservations about passing data responsibilities to a public-cloud provider. But that’s not to say there aren’t inherent risks to an organization operating their own on-premises data center. Privilege abuse, configuration mistakes, and ignorance of policy are common IT challenges—all of which can be mitigated through the use of a public-cloud provider that puts security first. In fact, we’re seeing a rapid shift in attitudes, with the “Oracle and KPMG Cloud Threat Report 2020” showing that 75% of organizations now see public clouds as more secure than on-premises systems—an increase over the previous year. At Oracle, we want every organization to take advantage of the cloud’s agility, flexibility, and scalability without compromising their own data, or their customers’ data. That’s why we bake security into all our cloud solutions at the architectural level, ensuring full-stack protection and a platform that’s secure by design.
We recognize there’s no silver bullet against cybercrime, which is why Oracle Security protects against major points of vulnerability, including:
Oracle takes a layered approach to provide powerful data protection against a wide array of risks and threats. At the center lies your data, which is secure by design through our zero-trust architecture. This helps you decide how infrastructure, users, devices, and applications interact with that data.
With a continuous assessment of risk and trust, Oracle provides comprehensive security. And because our security solutions cover your infrastructure with full-stack protection, you can grow your business with confidence that whatever happens next, your Oracle security solutions will detect threats, remediate errors and anomalies, and always protect your data from attacks.
To help every organization move forward with confidence, we underpin each of our core solution areas with three strategic security pillars:
