Oracle has announced major updates to Oracle Identity Management, which enables organizations to securely manage access to mobile, cloud and on-premise applications through a single, easy to use interface.

As the enterprise IT landscape becomes more complex and security risks increase, organizations are under ever increasing pressure to provide seamless and secure access to a wide variety of applications from a growing number of devices.

The latest version of Oracle Identity Management 11gR2 Patchset 3 helps simplify and streamline this process by integrating Enterprise Mobility Management into the Oracle Identity Management stack.

The integration unifies mobile security, identity management and compliance into one consolidated platform.

“Digital technologies such as cloud, social and mobile are becoming the norm in the enterprise and are creating a new set of increasingly complex security challenges,” said Jim Taylor, senior director, product management, Oracle.


“To help organizations efficiently address these challenges, the latest release of Oracle Identity Management integrates our mobile security and identity management offerings into one consolidated code base, user interface, policy engine and workflow. The integration will help organizations cost effectively meet strict regulatory, compliance and security demands.”

With the integration of mobility management into Oracle Identity Management, organizations can now secure and enable their mobile workforce with capabilities such as mobile device management, mobile app management, mobile content management, and mobile identity.

Oracle’s solution excels with advanced SSO and context-aware authentication. Additionally, the updated Oracle Identity Management includes an enhanced user interface that simplifies end-users interaction with the system, improving the sign-on experience for employees and reducing helpdesk calls.

With the latest release of Oracle Identity Management 11gR2 Patchset 3 Oracle is providing organizations with the most advanced and comprehensive identity management platform. As a result, organizations can realize the full potential of cloud and mobile applications while helping to ensure that valuable company data remains secure.

To further improve the platform, Oracle has also introduced new identity governance features that allow customers to easily achieve audit compliance, such as separation of duties and full role life cycle management capabilities. By including these new functions, Oracle enables organizations to reduce the system’s management, deployment and long-term maintenance costs.
