Mythics Data Armor Database Hardening with ASO

Protecting, Hardening & Securing Your Oracle Database


Unauthorized disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) and other sensitive information collected by an agency’s system/application can be damaging to the person that is represented, the agency, and potentially, national security. As such, data repositories should be encrypted to protect this sensitive information, in accordance with NIST guidance (such as Special Publication (SP) 800-53). Encryption is an effective means for mitigating the risk of compromise if implemented in conjunction with strong access controls.

To help agencies address this threat, Mythics presents this fixed price solution offering that will secure Oracle databases by applying vendor supported and industry proven encryption techniques to them. These techniques are based on the use of FIPS 140-2 compliant cryptographic algorithms and NIST recommended key management practices, while minimizing service disruption and downtime. The outlined approach does not require any changes to underlying applications.
