Oracle Adds To Database Security Offerings With Secerno Acquisition


Secerno’s technology helps prevent sophisticated attacks from reaching databases. Oracle said the acquisition adds “a critical defensive layer of security around databases” and “blocks unauthorized activity in real-time.” That, in turn, helps businesses better ensure data privacy and enable regulatory compliance, according to the company.

The software works with Oracle’s database, as well as database software from other vendors.

Oracle said it would use the Secerno products to augment its portfolio of database security software, including Oracle Advanced Security, Oracle Database Vault and Oracle Audit Vault.

“The Secerno acquisition is in direct response to increasing customer challenges around mitigating database security risk,” said Andrew Mendelsohn, Oracle senior vice president of database server technologies, in a statement.
