Oracle enhances cloud security with integrated threat management

Oracle is expanding the built-in security services and capabilities of Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) to help customers protect their cloud applications and data against emerging threats.

The new capabilities round out OCI’s security offering, including a new built-in and cloud-native firewall service, powered by Palo Alto Networks, and enhancements to Oracle Cloud Guard and Oracle Security Zones.

These innovations will ensure that organizations can easily secure their cloud deployments and applications with simple, prescriptive, and integrated services that in most cases, do not require additional investment.

Mahesh Thiagarajan, senior vice president of security and developer services at OCI, said: “Oracle has decades of experience in guiding customers to secure their valuable data and applications in the cloud and on-premises. With OCI Network Firewall, powered by industry-leading Palo Alto Networks, we are bringing the ecosystem closer to the platform. These latest innovations, combined with our existing offerings, provide organizations with a comprehensive set of cloud security services that lower the barrier to secure customer cloud environments and help them more easily identify potential vulnerabilities.”
