hi all,

as my personally experiences, all Oracle Security products till now is not used much in real system. Most Customers not use it, they often use the third-party solutions.

Is that true ? if yes, what is the reason ?


Could you share your opinions about his ?


Regards.

    Hi there,

    We use ASO and DV on our DB Site, I think ppl doesn't use them too much since their price is set too high, and many features used by these products require a very specific security requirement (f. ex. comply with SOX or PCI) and many customers don't have that need.

    Regards!

    yes, Oracle products are expensive !

    as we know, IBM security solutions is not cheap, but they can sell it well.

    Well, I believe that you are not at the right customers then :-)

    I do regularly work for customers who use some - if not all - of the Oracle Security products.

    Often customers are not even aware that they use Oracle products. For example at the last company I worked (very large multi-national consulting company) all security and IDM stuff was powered by Oracle. But as the look and feel was integrated into their corporate style only a few people knew it was an Oracle product that did SSO, user management and the like.
