Oracle buys Secerno for database firewall technology

May 20, 2010
Database giant Oracle announced Thursday it plans to acquire U.K.-based Secerno, maker of database firewall solutions. The deal, expected to close in June, will enhance Oracle's portfolio of security solutions, which includes Advanced Security, Database Vault and Audit Vault, to further protect against threats and ensure compliance. "Secerno's database firewall product acts as a first line of defense against external threats and unauthorized internal access with a protective perimeter around Oracle and non-Oracle databases," said Andrew Mendelsohn, senior VP of Oracle Database Server Technologies. Terms of the buy were not disclosed. In November, IBM acquired database security vendor Guardium. — DK
