Oracle (ORCL) unveiled new features for its Identity Management 11g Release 2 platform to help its customers securely deploy and manage cloud, enterprise and mobile environments. According to a statement, the platform’s new features enable organizations to extend consistent access policies and controls beyond enterprise applications and systems to cloud-based systems and mobile devices.

“Cloud and mobile applications are becoming more pervasive in the enterprise, but the security of these applications and the data accessed by them continues to be a concern,” Amit Jasuja, Oracle’s Senior Vice President of Java and Identity Management, said in a prepared statement. “With the latest release of Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 2, 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.”

Some of Oracle Identity Management 11g R2’s new features include:

  • Oracle Mobile Security Suite that secures corporate applications and data on personal devices used for work

  • Single sign-on access to Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications from a personalized launch pad that’s available on any device, tablet or workstation

  • Oracle Mobile Authenticator that provides a mobile application to replace corporate-issued hardware tokens

  • New session management and recording capabilities for authorized users

  • A new installation and patching wizard that helps automate the installation and configuration of Oracle Identity Management

Jim Cole, Senior Vice President and CIO at First National Bank of Omaha, commented on Oracle Identity Management 11g R2’s new features and the platform’s impact on his organization in a prepared statement:

“As First National Bank of Omaha continues to invest in our mobile strategy, security will be one of the most important considerations for us, and our customers, going forward. Our decision to leverage our current investment in [the] Oracle Identity Management suite came after we considered their vision and strategy for mobile. Working closely with the senior leadership within Oracle has also been key to our decision. Oracle’s openness to listen to our desire to balance ease of use with advanced technology has been very refreshing. We are excited by the collaboration and what it can bring to our customers.”

Oracle announced Identity Management 11g R2 in July 2012. At the time, Jasuja noted in a press release that Oracle wanted to launch a platform that would help organizations improve their infrastructures and extend their reach.

“We designed Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 2 to meet the new challenges our customers face from today’s digital experience to help them better secure their existing infrastructure and continue to expand their reach,” Jasuja said. “With Oracle Identity Management 11g Release 2, organizations can strengthen and simplify identity lifecycle management across the entire enterprise, while still meeting complex compliance and regulatory requirements.”
