Oracle Transforms IT Security and Management with New Machine Learning Capabilities

Posted By - DynamicCISO,

Oracle Executive Chairman and CTO Larry Ellison last week demonstrated new cyber security machine learning capabilities that transform IT security and management. The new machine learning powered security capabilities form an integral part of enhancements to Oracle Management Cloud, a complete and integrated solution for IT security and management that enables organizations to monitor and analyze their operational and security data in a single solution.

“Existing approaches to security and management are no longer sufficient, which is why the headlines are now full of security breaches and performance outages,” said Ellison. “Our vision for security and management is very simple. We need all of the data in one place. We need purpose-built machine learning that can be used by security and operations professionals, not data scientists. We need automated remediation that does not require human effort. And that’s what we’ve built with Oracle Management Cloud.”

Ellison contrasted Oracle Management Cloud with the security and management capabilities delivered by Splunk. The analysis highlighted that Splunk lacks the key data needed for operations and optimal security.

  • Oracle Management Cloud delivers a complete data architecture through a unified entity model that spans topology, associations, telemetry and threats. In contrast, Splunk has no real entity model and leaves data in many disparate vendor silos.    
  • Oracle Management Cloud provides real-time insight through out-of-the-box applied machine learning that is easy to operate and use. In contrast, Splunk provides a machine learning toolkit that requires data scientists.
  • Oracle Management Cloud delivers integrated and automated remediation that helps eliminate human error. In contrast, Splunk has no remediation capability. 

 “Companies are losing the cyber war. And it gets worse every year. Companies have to defend themselves against nation-states who are stealing their data, and very sophisticated cyber criminals who are stealing their data,” said Ellison. 

"This is not simply an analytical system, like Splunk. It is a security monitoring and management system designed to detect and remediate the problem,” he concluded.
