The Database Security Group is chartered to provide security infrastructure components for Oracle product groups and develop security products/solutions for Oracle customers. Oracle is the leader and pioneer in database security. Our group continues to innovate and extend the lead on our competitors. We develop core database security functionality, network security and solutions that address enterprise-wide security challenges, especially by consolidating and centralizing security relevant information and policies, thereby enabling better manageability and stricter enforcement. Homeland security, Privacy, Compliance, Application Hosting, Defense, Finance, and Healthcare are among the industries that benefit from this technology. Security is essential for businesses and consumers in the information age.

Our team within the Database Security Group is responsible for building the Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall solution. Oracle Audit Vault and Database Firewall consolidates and collates audit data, and monitors Oracle and non-Oracle database traffic, to detect and block threats, as well as improves compliance reporting by consolidating audit data from databases, operating systems, directories, and other sources. Highly accurate SQL grammar-based technology blocks unauthorized transactions, helping prevent internal and external attacks from reaching the database.
