Oracle boosts database security with Secerno buy

First line of defence.

Oracle has announced the acquisition of database firewall provider Secerno in a move designed to expand its growing portfolio of database security products.

The Secerno technology, which has won many plaudits and independent awards in the industry, is based on its SynoptiQ Engine which is able to analyse database activity, suggest policies and, crucially, prevent unauthorised access.

Oracle said that Secerno's products would extend its existing database security solutions, including Advanced Security, Database Vault and Audit Vault, to ensure data privacy, protect against threats and enable regulatory compliance.

Andrew Mendelsohn, senior vice president of Oracle database server technologies, explained that the acquisition had been driven by increasing customer concerns around database security.

"Secerno's database firewall acts as a first line of defence against external threats and unauthorised internal access with a protective perimeter around Oracle and non-Oracle databases," he said.

"Together, Oracle's complete set of database security solutions and Secerno's technology will provide customers with the ability to safeguard their critical business information."

Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
