This is concurrent with an increasing need for organisations to provide provide seamless and secure access to a wide variety of applications from a growing number of device as the enterprise IT landscape becomes even more complex and vulnerable.

The latest version of Oracle Identity Management will help simplify and streamline this process, by integrating EMM into the Oracle Identity Management stack. The integration unifies mobile security, identity management and compliance into one consolidated platform.

"Digital technologies such as cloud, social and mobile are becoming the norm in the enterprise, and are creating a new set of increasingly complex security challenges," said Jim Taylor, Senior Director of Product Management, Oracle. "To help organisations efficiently address these challenges, the latest release of Oracle Identity Management integrates our mobile security and identity management offerings into one consolidated code base, user interface, policy engine and workflow. The integration will help organisations cost-effectively meet strict regulatory, compliance and security demands."

With the integration of mobility management into Oracle Identity Management, businesses will now be able to secure and enable their mobile workforce with capabilities such as MDM, MAM, content management, and mobile identity.

Oracle's solution is set to excel with advanced SSO and context-aware authentication. Additionally, the updated Oracle Identity Management will include an enhanced user interface to simplify the users' interaction with the system, improving the sign-on experience for employees and reducing helpdesk calls.

With these updates, Oracle will provide organisations with the most advanced and comprehensive identity management platform. As a result, enterprises will be able to realise the full potential of cloud and mobile applications, while helping to ensure that valuable company data remains fully secure.

To further improve the platform, Oracle has also introduced new identity governance features to allow customers to easily achieve audit compliance, such as separation of duties and full role lifecycle management capabilities. By including these new governance functions within the identity management platform, Oracle will enable organisations to reduce the management, deployment and long-term maintenance costs of the system.
