Increasing Security for SAP Installations with Immutable Zones [50774]
By Parnian Taidi

Parnian blogs, "In recent blogs we have talked about various aspects of end-to-end application security with Oracle Solaris 11, SPARC M7 and the ISV Ecosystem.

The Echo Chamber Talks Security [49853]
Customers in the Know

Jeb Dasteel writes, "Oracle is very focused on listening to our customers, building community, and taking full advantage of the collective insights of our global user base. To this end, we recently kicked off an Echo Chamber initiative, designed to assess and respond to the perspectives of user group members from around the world on critical business and technology issues and developments.

As the conversation develops, we see opportunities to take action and deliver something meaningful back to the community..."
