Oracle Introduces Oracle Mobile Security Suite to Enable Organizations to Securely Deploy Applications and Access Data on Mobile Devices

New Suite Extends Leading Identity Management Platform With Unified Security to Support Mobility

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 02/26/14 -- Oracle (NYSE: ORCL)

News Summary
As the workforce becomes increasingly mobile, the need for organizations to control access and protect company data on mobile devices has become more critical than ever. When it comes to mobile security, organizations need a solution that offers advanced security controls for corporate devices and personal devices (also known as Bring Your Own Device/BYOD or Corporate Owned Personally Enabled/COPE), while providing a simplified user experience. With the Oracle Mobile Security Suite, organizations have the flexibility to permit enterprise access from users' devices with more granular control by isolating corporate and personal data, enabling secure enterprise application access.

News Facts

  • Oracle today introduced Oracle Mobile Security Suite, enabling organizations to safely provide access to sensitive enterprise applications and data on users' preferred mobile devices.
  • The new suite along with Oracle's existing Identity and Access solutions deliver an integrated platform from which organizations can manage access to all applications from all devices -- including laptops, desktops and mobile devices.
  • Unlike the device-centric approaches taken by today's mobile device management solutions that can create a separate security silo requiring expensive integration with identity solutions, Oracle Mobile Security Suite takes an application and user-centric approach which allows IT to more efficiently and securely administer and manage access.
  • Oracle Mobile Security Suite provides a secure workspace that allows companies to separate and protect enterprise apps and data and enforce policy while preserving privacy of users' personal applications and content on the same device.
  • In addition to separation of personal and corporate information, the workspace provides a complete mobile application solution including single sign-on, per application network tunneling, encryption for stored data, native integration with Microsoft Active Directory for shared-drive access, a corporate application catalog and a wrapping tool to include bespoke or COTS applications into the workspace.
  • As part of the Oracle Mobile Platform, Oracle Mobile Security Suite is integrated out of the box with Oracle's Mobile Suite for application development, integration and deployment, in addition to being available standalone.

High Performance, Cost Effective Security for Today's Mobile Enterprise
Oracle Identity Management is a complete and integrated, next-generation identity management platform that provides breakthrough scalability; enables organizations to achieve rapid compliance with regulatory mandates; secures sensitive applications and data regardless of whether they are hosted on-premise or in a cloud; and helps reduce operational costs. Key features of the Oracle Mobile Security Suite include:

  • Mobile Security Controls: New controls enable organizations to improve security and management of corporate data and applications on smartphones and tablets including geo-fencing, to limit access or restrict functionality based on location; application policy control, such as limiting copy/paste/print to prevent data loss; per application secure networking for data confidentiality, without battery draining device level VPNs; and efficient local data encryption with support for remote wiping of enterprise data and apps when a user is terminated.
  • Simple and Powerful User Experience: Oracle Mobile Security Suite includes an email client, secure browser, file manager, white pages app, document editor, and a mobile app catalog that can serve as an app store. With embedded single sign-on (SSO) and pluggable authentication with support for PKI and Kerberos, users sign-on once with their enterprise credential for access to all their bespoke and COTS apps, websites or file shares in the secure workspace.
  • Advanced Identity Controls: With the new suite, organizations can leverage the comprehensive feature set of Oracle Identity & Access Management with Fraud Detection, Governance & Compliance and user life-cycle management on mobile devices, for a forward-looking approach to the growing Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) phenomenon.

Supporting Quote

  • "Oracle Mobile Security Suite brings the strength of Oracle's Identity Management platform to mobile devices, and as a result helps organizations address the BYOD challenge with a logical approach," said Amit Jasuja, senior vice president of Java and Identity Management, Oracle. "By extending security and access capabilities to mobile devices, organizations can protect corporate resources on employee devices without compromising the user experience."

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
