Oracle buys two security software companies

Oracle Continues on Its Shopping Spree by By Michael Liedtke:

"SAN FRANCISCO - Oracle Corp. has snapped up security-software specialists Thor Technologies Inc. and OctetString, continuing an aggressive shopping spree aimed at filling holes in its product lineup."

Oracle have bolstered their line up even further with a purchase of two security software companies. Thor Technologies of New York and OctetString of Schaumburg, Ill. Both companies focus on Identity Management.

It seems to me that Oracle are going to concentrate on Identity Management and ensuring that only the users who should see data are going to see it. This is a very positive attitude to security from Oracle.
