Security more and more is getting the level of attention it deserves within companies. For long security has been seen as something mystique and most people within a company lived under the assumption that security was arranged. Silently hoping it was not part of their responsibility and trying to live with a line of thinking that someone else would take care of security.

Luckily this mindset is changing; it is not uncommon that a specific C level role for security is created and is part of the IT board of an enterprise. Security is more and more becoming the foundation of enterprise architecture frameworks used within enterprises and security becomes more engrained in the mindset of architects, developers and administrators.

As part of the growing Oracle portfolio and as part of the Oracle commitment to providing secure solutions to its customers you see new and improved security products being offered by Oracle. Partially this is as additional security to existing Oracle products to strengthen security; partially these are products that take a wider angle and provide security to both Oracle and non-Oracle products.

When working with an Oracle centric IT footprint it is good for developers, architects and administrators as well as IT management to take a look into the Oracle security portfolio. Some of the prime take away areas are listed below:
