One of the most requested features in the compliance management area has been a compliance standard for Oracle Database 12c. As most of you would know, Oracle Database 12c has been out for quite some time, and indeed Larry Ellison has just announced at OOW2016 availability of Oracle Database 12cR2 in Oracle’s public cloud offering. However, as I discussed in another post earlier this year, creating a new STIG compliance standard is not a simple matter. In fact, we are still working on integrating the DISA Oracle Database 12c compliance standard into Enterprise Manager Cloud Control 13c.
So if we’re still integrating it, why am I announcing it’s available now? You might think it’s because Oracle always announces products before they’re shipped.
