On Thursday June 30th, we announced Oracle’s new cloud platform, including a new line of servers for cloud and scale-out applications: Oracle’s SPARC S7-2 and S7-2L servers. These servers are based on the breakthrough SPARC S7 processor and extend the outstanding features and capabilities of the SPARC T7 and M7 systems into scale-out form factors. With the combination of Oracle’s breakthrough Software in Silicon features and the efficiency of the SPARC S7 processor we can offer the most secure and economical enterprise clouds with the fastest infrastructure for data analytics.
Here at Oracle we recognize our customers’ needs for increasing the security of their data, therefore we have taken security as one of the core values on the SPARC Servers. The new SPARC S7 processor leverages the revolutionary Security in Silicon features introduced on the SPARC T7 and M7 systems. Silicon Secured Memory is a unique hardware implementation that prevents unauthorized access to application data in
Security has become top of mind for CIOs, and CEOs. Encryption at rest is a piece of the solution, but not a big piece. Encryption over the network is another piece, but only a small piece. These and other pieces do not fit together well; they need to unencrypt and reencrypt the data when they move through the layers, leaving clear versions that create complex operational issues to monitor and detect intrusion.
Larger-scale high-value applications requiring high security often use Oracle middleware, including Java and Oracle database. Traditional security models give the data to the processors to encrypt and unencrypt, often many times. The overhead is large, and as a result encryption is used sparingly on only a few applications. The risk to enterprises is that they may have created an illusion of security, which in reality is ripe for exploitation.
The modern best-practice security model is an end-to-end encryption architecture. The application deploys application-led encryption s
For the past several years IBM has been divesting its hardware business. At the same time, Oracle has continued to invest in IT infrastructure and cloud innovation. Oracle SPARC servers offer you greater performance and efficiency compared to IBM Power systems, with additional security and lower costs, along with the flexibility to run your applications on-premises or in the Oracle Cloud.

Things are not as they used to be in the enterprise. Today’s employees are mobile, they’re storing and accessing data in cloud apps, and are in disparate networks. While the present-day digital world has changed, the objective of data protection has not: you must still ensure the security of your critical data and intellectual property without impacting an employee’s ability to do their job.
The key is to gain visibility into user interactions with data and applications. Once this is achieved, you can apply a level of control based on the specific user’s risk and the sensitivity or value of the data. An organization’s data protection program must consider the human point — the intersection of users, data and networks. Enterprises must remain vigilant of data as it moves across hybrid environments and highlight the users who create, touch and move data who may pose the greatest risk to an organization.
The increasing reliance on big data platforms for all functions of the organization has been transformative. As these environments mature and data volumes increase, organizations face infrastructure and management scalability challenges.

A survey commissioned by Intel Security and conducted by Evalueserve, in conjunction with the report, suggests that a majority of companies lack confidence in their ability to detect targeted attacks in a timely manner. Even companies best prepared to handle targeted attacks are taking the time to investigate high volumes of events. Key findings include 78% of those able to detect attacks in minutes had a proactive, real-time SIEM solution.
To ensure fast, efficient, and comprehensive remediation of breaches, IT security decision makers have acknowledged the need to reduce the complexity of their endpoint security environments. Today’s enterprises value integrated endpoint security solutions that can effectively handle the whole process of endpoint security, including attack prevention, detection, and remediation. Single-vendor suite solutions and cloud technologies are on the rise due to their perceived benefits, including simplicity, lower costs, and better integrated coverage across platforms.
Time has become a critical capability in being able to extract the business value enterprises want from their data and computing infrastructure, as well as to protect the business value that has already been created. In multiple areas of cyber security, time is currently working in favor of the attackers — and time is the strategic advantage that the defenders need to regain. In this report, Aberdeen Group provides four illustrative examples of how recapturing an advantage of time can help defenders to reduce their risk, in the fundamental categories of data protection, threat detection and incident response, data center / cloud security, and endpoint security.
Security Innovation Alliance Partners have integrated, tested, and certified their security solutions to work with McAfee Enterprise Security Manager.

This provides a truly connected security ecosystem that optimizes the value of your existing investments, improves efficiency, maximizes protection, and reduces operational costs.
Protecting a business – including its information and intellectual property, physical infrastructure, employees, and reputation – has become increasingly difficult. Online threats come from all sides: internal leaks and external adversaries; domestic hacktivists and overseas cybercrime syndicates; targeted threats and mass attacks. And these threats run the gamut from targeted to indiscriminate to entirely accidental.
Like many security trends and frameworks, the early stages of adoption often involve inconsistent definitions, challenges with justification and management communication and an unknown path to implementation. In this white paper, we:
• Review the current threatscape and why it requires this new approach
• Offer a clarifying definition of what cyber threat Intelligence is
• Describe how to communicate its value to the business and
• Lay out some concrete initial steps toward implementing Intelligence-Led Security
