Oracle unveils indentity management suite
Oracle Middle East has unveiled its identity management suite since acquiring Oblix in March 2005.
Oracle Middle East has unveiled its identity management suite since acquiring Oblix in March 2005. The release delivers a complete identity solution to safeguard information, critical systems and applications against unauthorised access across heterogeneous computing environments.
Serving as the security backbone for Oracle Fusion Middleware, the new release brings together identity management capabilities from Oracle and Oblix and further extends support for heterogeneous systems. Regional organisations can use the solution to manage enterprise-wide identities for Oracle and non-Oracle technologies. The product extends support for all leading applications, directories and platforms.
“When we acquired Oblix, Oracle provided an outline for how we would rapidly integrate Oblix technology with Oracle’s existing identity offerings,” says Husam Dajani, vice president at Oracle Middle East and Africa. “This release marks the first milestone delivering on that commitment and brings together the best features and technologies that will help us to meet strong regional demand for Oracle’s identity products.”
With increasingly complex information technology ecosystems, organisations in the Middle East are seeking solutions that provide secure access across all systems. For example, an enterprise running an IBM database, SAP applications and an LDAP directory from Microsoft can now use a single identity solution. Previously, organisations were tasked with deploying multiple point solutions to manage user identities for specific systems and applications.
