How Adlib Cloud Infrastructure Delivers Peace of Mind

Adlib Cloud Infrastructure offers peace of mind through a virtual data center in the cloud, which provides the same level of transparency into workflows as companies have on-premises.

Adlib’s Content Intelligence platform is complemented by multiple Oracle Cloud solutions designed to maximize cloud security and compliance.

Enterprises can migrate as many mission-critical workloads to the cloud as they need while maintaining a strong security posture and reducing costs. When companies spend less time worrying about risk, control, and transparency, they have more time and resources to focus on growth and innovation.

Answers to 7 Questions About Cloud Security

Here are a few frequently asked questions that address the seven reasons to embrace a move to the cloud with Adlib backed by Oracle Cloud.

1. Does Adlib’s Cloud Infrastructure provide protections from other cloud users?

Users should be able to deploy their applications and data assets in a fully isolated environment, impervious to other cloud tenants or Adlib employees. Adlib Cloud Infrastructure is designed to protect customer workloads with a security-first approach across computer networks and storage.

2. How is data at-rest and in-transit protected from security threats?

Always-on data encryption protects customer data when it is at-rest and when in-transit allowing users to meet their security and compliance requirements both on-premises and in the cloud environment. Oracle’s Autonomous Database and Adlib Database security solutions include encryption, key management, data masking, privileged user access controls, activity monitoring, and auditing.

3. How are workloads protected from accidental user actions?

Easy-to-use built-in security controls allow users to safely deliver applications, limit access to their services, and keep operational responsibilities separate to reduce the risk associated with malicious attacks or user error.

4. How can users monitor activity on their projects and resources?

Data from logs and security analytics provide an opportunity to audit and monitor actions on resources making it easier to meet audit requirements and reduce threats to cloud security and operational risk.

5. Is it possible for employees to use their existing security assets?

A secure hybrid cloud makes it possible for customers to use their existing security assets, including third-party security solutions, when securing data and applications in the cloud and when accessing their cloud resources.

6. What happens to cloud data when disaster strikes?

Virtual data centers in the cloud enable high availability scale-out architecture and are resilient against network attacks. Companies can be confident in constant uptime in the face of disaster and security attacks.

7. How can I be sure a cloud environment is truly secure?

Look for a verifiably secure infrastructure that follows rigorous processes and uses effective security controls in every phase of cloud service development and operation. A secure infrastructure will be able to stand up to third-party audits, certifications, and attestations.
