Protecting Oracle E-Business Suite: Reducing the Attack Surface

This is the fourth consecutive blog post in our series on how to make Oracle E-Business Suite more secure. In this post, we will focus on reducing the attack surface - something that is a critical component for any successful information security strategy. The more you can reduce the components that are exposed to attackers (and to vulnerabilities), the more you can focus on keeping your exposed systems secure. In Oracle E-Business Suite, this feature is called Allowed JSPs and Allowed resources.

Protecting Oracle E-Business Suite: Password Policy

For a third week, we’re providing you with best practices for securing your Oracle E-Business Suite implementation. Today, we are going to talk about a common topic: password security. When it comes to password policy, the first thing that probably comes to mind is having a secure password. That is why in addition to all network security layers, it is very important to have a proper password policy, along with a users list and groups so to follow a guideline of how passwords are formed.

Another Record Breaking Oracle CPU - April 2017

Yesterday, Oracle released its quarterly security patches and what a record breaking CPU it was! With close to 300 published patches, this marks the highest number of patches released to date for any CPU. This further validates the trend we have seen in previous CPU’s which is  to correct more vulnerabilities in Oracle products due to increased research submissions targeting different Oracle products.

Oracle CPU for January 2017 Breaks New Record

In this month's post we will analyze the January 2017 Oracle Critical Patch Update (CPU) and how it relates to Oracle Business Critical Applications. This CPU is special because the number of vulnerabilities fixed sets a new record for the amount of vulnerabilities fixed in a single CPU for Business Critical Applications. At Onapsis, we believe there are two main factors that contribute to this record breaking number of vulnerabilities in a single CPU. These two factors are the Researchers and of course, Oracle itself.

Announcing the Onapsis SAP HANA Security Resource Center

SAP HANA evolved a lot in 2016, as did security focused on this critical platform. The year ended with the release of the “new generation” version, SAP HANA 2. Starting in early December, customers have been able to upgrade to this new version that SAP explains as big enough not to call it SAP HANA SP13. This new release is another testament to the success of SAP HANA adoption and will continue to increase the amount of customers that are moving to the world of the SAP in-memory database.
