As part of Oracle's push towards autonomous computing, the new services incorporate a significant degree of automation for faster response.
"Organisations are facing constant security threats from sophisticated actors who want to attack their applications and access their sensitive data," said Oracle Cloud Infrastructure senior vice-president of product development, Don Johnson.
"The new solutions build on Oracle’s existing, strong security heritage and give customers always-on capabilities that make it easier than ever to achieve end-to-end security. These new security layers include highly automated detective, preventive, responsive, and predictive security controls that help mitigate data breaches, address regulatory compliance, and reduce overall risk."
The Web Application Firewall designed to protect applications against botnets, application attacks and DDoS attacks. It can respond by blocking attacks and alerting security operations teams.
DDoS protection detects and mitigates high volume, Layer 3 or 4 DDoS attacks, helping to maintain the availability of network resources during an attack.
The Cloud Access Security Broker monitors for ongoing compliance with security policies, ensuring that networks are secure and data is protected. It applies ML-based behavioural analytics to predict threats.
Key Management Service puts encryption key management in customers' hands, as required in some situations for compliance and governance purposes.
