August 18, 2014 (Mon): Oracle Corporation, the world leading ICT solution provider, today introduces Oracle Key Vault, as the latest addition to the Oracle Database security portfolio, to provide secure, centralized management of encryption keys and credential files in the data center including Oracle wallet files, Java KeyStores, Kerberos keytab files, SSH key files and SSL certificate files.
Oracle Key Vault is the industry’s most modern solution for managing keys and metadata. The new solution offers easy archival and recovery, and streamlined sharing of files.
IDC research vice president, Application Development and Deployment. Carl Olofson highlights that encryption is no longer optional for managing enterprise data. It has become an essential element of end-to-end data protection.
Olofson adds, “As enterprises implement encryption in their middleware, database, and operating systems, key management becomes increasingly complex and difficult. Enterprises need a means of sensibly and securely managing those keys. Oracle Key Vault gives customers the advantage of a standards-based solution, optimized for the Oracle technology stack, for centralized management of their encryption keys.”
Built for x86-64 hardware, the fully integrated software appliance uses Oracle Linux and Oracle Database technology for security, availability, and scalability. Optimized for the Oracle technology stack, including Oracle Database and Oracle Fusion Middleware, Oracle Key Vault can also be deployed seamlessly in existing environments.
“As regulations worldwide increasingly call for more data to be encrypted, organizations need a centralized solution to securely manage all the encryption keys and credential files in their data centers,” said Vipin Samar, vice president of database security product development at Oracle.
“Oracle Key Vault is a modern, standards-based product that allows organizations to reduce the overhead of regulatory compliance with a solution that protects Oracle Database encryption master keys, Oracle wallet files, Java KeyStores, and other credential files.” Vipin ends.
