December 11, 2017

Database maker Oracle on Monday announced an expansion of its Identity Security Operations Center portfolio, making it easier for companies to oversee user identities and confidential data.

The Oracle Identity SOC portfolio and Oracle Management Cloud are designed to help enterprises forecast, reduce, detect and resolve security threats. They also leverage artificial intelligence and machine learning to help prevent attacks, as well as pinpoint security breaches and performance outages.

The California-based company also announced the first cloud-native identity government service for hybrid cloud environments. The governance offering will be integrated in and native to Oracle’s software-as-a-service applications, the Identity SOC portfolio, and Oracle Management Cloud.

Oracle Identity Cloud Service will gain new management capabilities for built-in consent management, social profiles, preference management, and activity attributes. Together, these aim to let enterprises build more targeted marketing campaigns with better consumer insights and analytics.

“Built on our advanced artificial intelligence and automation technologies, Oracle Identity SOC portfolio now offers cloud-native identity governance combined with adaptive security designed to protect our customer’s cloud and digital services,” said Rohit Gupta, group vice president, Cloud Security, Oracle. “In addition to strengthening internal security monitoring, Oracle’s comprehensive cross-stack threat detection capabilities provide broad threat detection range, less noise from false positives and a high level of accuracy in detecting and remediating threats against the enterprise’s most important IT asset – its data.”

Finally, Oracle also announced new partner programs for security solutions. The Identity SOC Security Network in oracle Cloud Marketplace offers technology integrations with leading security vendors in areas including Enterprise Mobility Management, Net Generation Firewalls, Endpoint Security, and Threat Intelligence.

Companies embracing the Oracle Identity SOC portfolio include data security platform Vera, credential monitoring and verification provider VeriClouds, and platform virtualization service VMware.

“Identity is the single most critical element of all modern applications and systems,” Vera cofounder and CTO Prakash Linga said. “Enhancing Oracle’s portfolio with Vera’s data-centric security and encryption solution makes Oracle’s services incredibly compelling for businesses.”
