Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Platform
Modern organizations rely increasingly on public clouds such as Oracle’s for virtually all their new workload deployments. But public clouds create unique security challenges, with most risks originating from components managed by you.
Protect your enterprise’s Oracle Cloud Infrastructure platform with optimized Symantec solutions so you can securely:
- Migrate legacy on-premises applications to the Oracle cloud
- Deploy new cloud-native applications and services
- Utilize elastic capacity to meet spikes in demand
Public cloud security requires special expertise
Public cloud security and compliance is a special case.
Why? For example …
- Public cloud applications are componentized, preconfigured, and template based; they’re also dynamic, mobile, orchestrated, and automated.
- The public cloud model can’t support extensive configuration efforts and long tuning cycles, two hallmarks of traditional on-premises security.
- Public cloud architecture makes it a poor choice for retrofitted on-premises security systems.
Our deep understanding of what makes public clouds unique is a key to our ability to fully protect the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure platform.
Safe Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (briefly) explained
The Oracle platform comprises a full, integrated set of subscription-based services enabling businesses to run any workload in the cloud—one that’s managed, hosted, and supported by Oracle. It includes core infrastructure capabilities such as elastic compute and storage.
Additionally, the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure platform offers high-performance, high-availability, and cost-effective infrastructure services by combining the elasticity and utility of the public cloud with the granular control, security, and predictability of on-premises infrastructure.
Symantec, Oracle—and you
We recognize Oracle is a leading public cloud provider and we’ve partnered with them to deliver Symantec security optimized for the Oracle Cloud. Specifically, Symantec protects applications and instances—the subscriber-controlled components in the Oracle Cloud.
This security complements Oracle’s global cloud infrastructure and platform services security. Put another way: Oracle Cloud customers are responsible for security IN the cloud; that’s where Symantec comes in. Oracle is responsible for security OF the cloud.
