Oracle beefs up its Cloud Security amid data breach concerns


As large enterprises such as Amazon Cloud are witnessing data breaches on a regular note, Oracle has decided to beef up its cloud security features on par with its customer expectations.

Truly speaking, Oracle’s database security has been a strong selling point for years. Although many criticized the firm for making a purchase of Sun Microsystems in 2008 that included Java and J2EE framework, the platform has still made headway in the field of security information and event management (SIEM).

Larry Ellison, the head of Oracle also praised his company’s cloud security features at the recently held Oracle’s OpenWorld 2017. He said that customers preferring well-curated, unified data store for massive amounts of log and other activity data are turning up to Oracle Cloud to conduct their activity with ease.

Ellison added that the addition of machine learning algorithms along with running book style automation will help Oracle Cloud customers in fixing more and more security flaws without human intervention.

The new features addition will not only help Oracle stand out among its competitors but will also help its customers to go worry-free for almost all security concerns.

Early this month, Oracle announced that it is going to use Blockchain technology to deliver enhanced cloud security features to its users. The plan is to help companies build their own blockchain network with Oracle managing the infrastructure behind it. Thus, companies can extend their software as a service and on-premises apps onto a blockchain network, to reduce both risk and cost.

So, customers who demand cloud platforms which have resiliency, scalability, and security can easily bank on Oracle Cloud for all of their cloud computing needs.
