No Compromise Performance and Security with Oracle’s Intel-based Systems
With attacks on IT systems becoming more frequent, more complex, and harder to detect, business managers are increasingly concerned about the safety and integrity of enterprise computer systems. Most corporate IT infrastructures are widely distributed networks linked to the internet with virtually unlimited points of access. The nature of these networks make businesses vulnerable to a variety of security threats — from unintentional acts that compromise security to targeted attacks that expose sensitive information and corrupt data. Since January 2005, over 521 million records containing sensitive personal information have been involved in security breaches in the United States according to the Privacy Rights Clearinghouse.
In addition to protecting systems from traditional internet-based hackers, IT managers worry about disgruntled insiders bent on vandalizing or stealing proprietary information. Furthermore, IT managers must comply with multiple governmental regulations requiring data, applications, and communications be properly secured. To meet these demands, appropriate data encryption, network safeguards, authentication and authorization processes, audit controls, and other procedures must be instituted to protect identities and data. Until recently, effective security technology has been difficult and expensive to execute and has imposed a significant drain on system performance.
Today, organizations can take advantage of the security, performance, and economic benefits of Oracle servers with Intel® Xeon® processor 5600 series and Intel® Xeon® processor E7 family, along with the advanced security features provided by Oracle® operating systems, database software, middleware, and applications.
