New Release Helps Protect Sensitive Data, Brings Centralized Management of Enterprise Wide Database Security Measures

On Monday at Oracle Open World, Oracle’s giant customer conference taking place this week in San Francisco, Oracle unveiled new and improved database security features in Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c.

Aimed at helping customers more efficiently manage database security across the enterprise, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c introduces capabilities that help increase administrator productivity and reduce the on-going costs of IT compliance through automation.

Oracle LogoOracle Enterprise Manager 12c brings a new database security dashboard that allows organizations to monitor and configure database access, data encryption, privileged user controls and other security policies.

Additional features enable users to discover sensitive and regulated data within databases with newly added application data modeling capabilities that accelerate the deployment of security measures such as data masking.

Complete protection of the database lifecycle through automated provisioning, patching, secure configuration and change management allows increased administrator productivity.

This new dashboard also offers an easy-to-use centralized interface for managing Oracle’s comprehensive portfolio of database security solutions.

To further help administrators protect databases, Oracle Enterprise Manager 12c introduces new capabilities for discovering and modeling sensitive and regulated application data. The tool can be used to discover sensitive data such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and date of birth that needs to be masked, encrypted or audited. The latest release of the Oracle Data Masking Pack offers new features including:

• Integration with Oracle Real Application Testing to allow production database workloads to be captured and masked for safe use in non-production environments;

• Integration with Oracle Test Data Management to mask only a subset of a production database;

• Masking of data stored in non-Oracle databases through the use of Oracle Database Gateways;

• Reversible format-preserving masking; and,

• Additional built-in masking rules and templates.

“Discovering which databases contain sensitive and regulated data can be very costly and time consuming, leaving critical databases in many organizations exposed. Customers must also look at the security of the entire database production environment as well as protecting data in non-production environments,” said Vipin Samar, vice president, Database Security Product Development at Oracle.
