New core-to-edge cloud services help secure customer data and combat sophisticated cyber threats with layers of defense
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 risks 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.”
