Identity and Configuration services boost Cloud Security of Oracle


Oracle Cloud customers will feel elated when they learn that their technology giant has added machine learning capabilities into its platform to help automate and improve its cloud security features.

Announcing the same on December 11, Oracle declared that it will provide enhanced identity and configuration services to help protect its customers against cyber threats.

The new service capability includes an extension of the Oracle Identity Security Operations Center (SOC) that was 1st announced at the Gartner Identity and Access Management conference in 2016.

“Oracle Identity SOC has been built from the group up for identity governance but consumes application risks information from the Oracle CASB Cloud service”, said Mr. Iyer, Senior Director of Product Management at Oracle.

Iyer added that the platform with newly integrated services will have artificial intelligence capabilities to improve governance workflows, such as predicting applications that a user might access based on the intelligence of peer learning.

Cybersecurity Insiders has learned that the new automated identity service capability is built on technology that Oracle gained via the acquisition of CASB Vendor Palerra in September last year.

Additionally, Oracle has also introduced new capabilities into its Configuration and Compliance Cloud Service that automatically discovers configuration settings. The service helps organizations help detect misconfigurations that could lead to security privacy violations and cyber risk.

The automated misconfiguration detection service was developed with the use of machine learning technology that was developed by Oracle in 2015.

Oracle might be in a plan to make it tough for its competitors in the cloud business. For this reason, it is bringing in new capabilities into its cloud platform as per the needs and demands of its customers from time to time.
