Company Continues to Drive Security Through Entire IT Product Line From Enterprise Business Applications to Databases
Accepted by more than 20 governments worldwide, the National Information Assurance Partnership's Common Criteria evaluation assesses the security of a product against a published Security Target. The certification of Oracle products is critical to security-conscious customers, specifically those who must comply with government mandated procurement policies that permit them to purchase only products that have successfully completed a Common Criteria evaluation. Such policies include the National Security Telecommunications Information Systems Security Policy #11 and the Department of Defense Directive 8500.1.
The evaluation marks another milestone in Oracle's longstanding commitment to provide data security, data encryption and data authentication for mission-critical, enterprise business applications. For this evaluation, a third-party laboratory evaluated Oracle's Siebel eBusiness Application Development Platform version 7.8.2, which includes Siebel Case Management, Siebel Service, Siebel Sales and Siebel Marketing to ensure the product met specific security criteria. Features evaluated include support for auditing -- read, write, delete, modify events; cryptography -- password and data encryption; communications -- Web server to application server; data protection -- access control, user identification and authentication; and security management.
"Oracle's customers represent some of the most security-conscious organizations in the world," said Mary Ann Davidson, chief security officer, Oracle. "The successful completion of another independent security evaluation underscores Oracle's commitment to building security into all of our products at each stage of the development lifecycle."
