Oracle has announced the certification of Oracle Database Vault for use with Oracle's Siebel CRM, providing out-of-the-box policies that prevent unauthorised access to critical application data by privileged users.
Oracle Database Vault prevents ad hoc access by Siebel business users to Siebel CRM application data, protecting against application bypass and enforcing access through the Siebel application account.
The Oracle Database Vault separation of duty also enables the Siebel CRM application database administrator to add new business users, without having the ability to view application data.
Oracle said the offering provides an advanced database access control system to help customers address their security and regulatory challenges, such as Sarbanes-Oxley, European Union data privacy directives, and payment card industry demands.
Oracle Database Vault releases 10.2.0.4 or 22.214.171.124 are recommended for use with Siebel CRM.
Oracle Database Vault is now certified with Siebel CRM, Oracle's PeopleSoft Enterprise platform, and the Oracle E-Business Suite.
