Oracle Security Makeover Highlights CASB, Identity Automation
August 06, 2018 / Jessica Lyons Hardcastle
If you’re playing Oracle word association, database and enterprise software not security probably come to mind. But as its customers move to hybrid cloud environments, the company is capitalizing on its database security and identity management technologies. It’s also folding in a 2016 cloud access security broker (CASB) acquisition and more recent autonomous capabilities. And it’s wrapping these in a security framework it calls Trust Fabric. The Oracle security makeover started when it hired Eric Olden as its senior vice president and general manager of security and identity in November 2017. Olden previously co-founded and was CEO of cloud identity and access management vendor Symplified. Prior to that, Olden was co-founder and CTO of identity management pioneer Securant Technologies and an architect at ClearTrust.
