Agiliance Adds Oracle 11g Support to GRC Platform

Oracle Support Addresses Need for Support of Large Data Sets and High Assurance Levels by Government Agencies and Enterprises

Oracle Support Addresses Need for Support of Large Data Sets and High Assurance Levels by Government Agencies and Enterprises

Governance, Risk and Compliance solutions provider Agiliance, today announced that its RiskVision product now integrates with Oracle Database 11g. The integration of Oracle 11g as a backend database allows for monitoring of assets and policies for users each in excess of hundreds of thousands. Additionally, RiskVision is able to utilize Oracle’s built-in security features to address higher assurance levels of government agencies, banking and financial services organizations, and Fortune 500 companies.

“As Oracle Database 11g is Common Criteria certified, it offers especially high-profile government agencies as well as banking and financial services organizations the opportunity to leverage the built-in security features for high assurance levels,” said Andy Mendelsohn, senior vice president of server technology at Oracle.

Agiliance customers are able to select from two database choices for its GRC platform – MySQL or Oracle. By leveraging Oracle Database 11g as an alternative to MySQL, organizations can achieve even greater scalability and higher enterprise assurance level, the company says.

“The introduction of RiskVision for Oracle is a major milestone in addressing the needs for high scalability and security of high-profile government agencies and large enterprises,” said Arti Raman, vice president of product and alliances at Agiliance. “In particular, our government customers and partners have asked for Oracle Database support and today’s announcement underscores Agiliance’s OpenGRC commitment to meet the U.S. Office of Management and Budget requirements for continuous monitoring and cloud computing.”

Whether implementing private, public or hybrid clouds, the shift to compute-as-a-service has presented new challenges across the spectrum of GRC requirements. The company recently announced its RiskVision Cloud Risk Management Services supports content and controls from the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA) GRC Stack. The Cloud Security Alliance GRC Stack, announced on November 17th, provides a toolkit for enterprises, cloud providers, security solution providers, IT auditors and other key stakeholders to instrument and assess both private and public clouds against industry established best practices, standards and critical compliance requirements.
