Oracle to participate in an industry-wide initiative to design a new open network and data security standard.
Oracle and Applied Invention are assisting to developing and promoting a novel network and data-centric security standard to tackle distributed cloud deployment challenges.
This standard will enable organizations to protect their data throughout its entire lifecycle without requiring modifications to their distributed cloud environments' underlying architecture.
Oracle, one of the world's largest database management companies, announced that it will participate in an industry-wide initiative to design a new open network and data security standards that will assist organizations in protecting their data in distributed IT environments. Oracle will collaborate with Applied Invention, a significant technology provider, and other industry leaders, including Nomura Research Institute, Ltd. (NRI), a global leader in consulting and system solutions. This new standard will enable networks to enforce shared security policies collectively, thereby augmenting the security architecture organizations already employ without requiring modifications to existing applications and networks.
Oracle plans to launch the Oracle Zero-Trust Packet Routing Platform, based on the new standard, to support this new initiative. This platform will assist organizations in preventing illegal access or use of their data without imposing additional obstacles on legitimate activities.
Executive Vice President of Security and Developer Platforms at Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, Mahesh Thiagarajan, said,
Over the last 20 years, the cybersecurity industry has produced many incremental changes, but we need a fundamentally novel approach to protect our data in the increasingly complex cloud era. Organizations require a way to describe their data security policies in one place where they can be easily understood and audited, and they need a way to make sure those policies are enforced across their entire computing infrastructure, including their clouds.

As the adoption of cloud technology rises and IT landscapes become more intricate with distributed cloud deployments, organizations face escalating challenges in safeguarding their data using conventional methods and tools. For example, many existing systems necessitate security teams to orchestrate disparate solutions across various facets, including database, application, network, and identity security.
This complexity is further compounded when applied across diverse environments. Ensuring seamless collaboration among these solutions becomes a formidable task due to the dynamic and independent changes in applications, environments, and user profiles. Additionally, current security systems demand extensive configurations to accurately distinguish between different user categories, such as full-time employees and contractors, without compromising security or restricting access.
Research Vice President of Cloud and Edge Infrastructure Services at IDC, Dave McCarthy, said,
The new standard Oracle develop has the potential to change all of that by adding a unified layer of security on top of existing solutions. Building data protection policies into the network itself will assist users get the access they require while ensuring the data remains secure behind the scenes.

Oracle and Applied Invention are assisting in designing and promoting a novel security standard, focusing on network and data-centric security, which aims to tackle these challenges. This innovative standard will empower organizations to safeguard their data across its entire lifecycle, including distributed cloud environments. To accomplish this, the standard will implement an intent-based security policy that is designed to be understandable, auditable, and interpretable by humans. This intent-driven approach will be put into practice at the network layer, ensuring that every data transmission contains authenticated attributes concerning the sender, receiver, and the nature of the data in transit.

Xage Security, the leader in zero trust cybersecurity solutions for the real world, today announced that it has been recognized as a Representative Vendor in the 2023 Gartner Market Guide for Cyber-Physical Systems Protection Platforms. This is the inaugural Gartner Market Guide to focus on Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) Protection Platforms, which are emerging as a leading cybersecurity market segment for protecting operations and mission-critical environments.
Gartner defines the Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) Protection Platforms Market as “products and services that use knowledge of industrial protocols, operational/production network packets or traffic metadata, and physical process asset behavior to discover, categorize, map and protect CPS in production or mission-critical environments outside of enterprise IT environments.” This report indicates a shift in the OT security market, which is moving beyond the use of segregated network architectures as the principal form of OT cybersecurity and into asset-centric approaches that protect at the level of individual users, applications and systems.
“With the changing threat landscape, an asset-centric approach to securing operations is an essential step to effectively protect against today’s advanced cyberattacks,” said Duncan Greatwood, CEO of Xage Security. “We believe this recognition of the market signals a new stage in critical infrastructure protection as more and more organizations are adopting CPS asset-centric security to prevent, contain and respond to cyber attacks.”
Operational Security Evolving to an Asset-Centric Security Model
Gartner states that “As the complexity and variety of old and new assets have become a reality for most organizations, so has the recognition that a new approach to security is needed.”Xage is pioneering a new approach to infrastructure cybersecurity providing operators with capabilities from asset discovery to identity-based cyber hardening in a converged solution that protects access to assets, data, and applications even if attackers gain access to the operational network.Last year, Xage was also recognized as a Representative Vendor among CPS Protection Platforms in the Gartner 2022 Innovation Insight for Cyber-Physical Systems Protection Platforms report and also named in the Gartner 2022 Market Guide for Operational Technology Security report.Xage helps operators protect their systems using an identity-based asset-centric zero trust architecture. Xage’s capabilities include identity-based access management and privilege enforcement, zero trust remote access, multi-layer multi-factor authentication (MFA), and zero trust data exchange that protects access to sensitive operational data.Gartner Market Guide for Cyber-Physical Systems Protection Platforms, Katell Thielemann and Wam Voster, 29th June 2023.
