Illumio Secures The World's Most Critical Data On Oracle Database

Bryan Pelham,

Illumio CCO Alan Cohen first introduced us to the Willie Sutton theory of cybersecurity:

“Why do you rob banks?” —Reporter
“Because that’s where the money is.” —Willie 'The Actor' Sutton 
 
The same applies in the cyber world – hacking into computers is just a means to an end.

What hackers are really after is the data contained within those computers: personal identities, financial records, trade secrets, confidential information. This data can then be leveraged for financial and/or competitive gain. So, just like Willie Sutton robbed banks because “...that’s where the money is”, the bad actors of cybersecurity focus on databases because “...that’s where the data is.”

And the world's most critical data is hosted on Oracle Database, the number one database in the world, which makes it the most likely target of said bad actors. 

Illumio recently attained Oracle Exastack Ready status, and the Illumio Adaptive Security Platform (ASP)™ now secures the world's most critical data running on Oracle Linux and Oracle Database. Illumio ASP provides live visibility, adaptive micro-segmentation, and instant encryption for servers running Oracle operating system and database software.

Illumio has also joined the Oracle PartnerNetwork and is a Gold-level member. This partnership and the Oracle Exastack Ready status assures customers that the Oracle and Illumio solutions work well together. 
Our joint customers now benefit from:

  • Secure network access to Oracle RAC servers, without impacting the platform’s high availability, scalability, and agility capabilities
  • Validated support on all hosts running Oracle Linux
  • The ability to re-platform Oracle apps to Exadata with security intact, which enables them to move to Oracle XaaS offerings with more confidence

The combined solution provides a scalable and simple way to secure your critical data across on-premise and cloud-based environments. Achieving Oracle Exastack Ready status ensures faster, predictable, and supportable deployments to keep your data secure.
