Overview of Oracle Solaris Security

Oracle Solaris is a robust, premier enterprise operating system that offers proven security features. With a sophisticated network-wide security system that controls the way users access files, protect system databases, and use system resources, Oracle Solaris 11 addresses security requirements at every layer. While traditional operating systems can contain inherent security weaknesses, the flexibility of Oracle Solaris 11 enables it to satisfy a variety of security objectives from enterprise servers to desktop clients. Oracle Solaris is fully tested and supported on a variety of SPARC and x86-based systems from Oracle and on other hardware platforms from third-party vendors.
