21 Managing Oracle Database Vault and Privilege Analysis

Oracle Database Vault provides powerful security controls to help protect database application data from unauthorized access, and comply with privacy and regulatory requirements. Using Oracle Database Vault, you can deploy controls to block privileged account access to database application data, and control sensitive operations within the database. Oracle Database Vault with Oracle Database 12c includes a feature called privilege analysis that helps you increase the security of your database applications and operations. Privilege analysis policies reduce the attack surface of database applications and increase operational security by identifying used and unused privileges.

You can manage Oracle Database Vault and privilege analysis policies using Enterprise Manager Cloud Control. For detailed information on how to do this, see Oracle Database Vault Administrator's Guide.
