Oracle Announces Availability of Cloud Marketplace to US Government Customers
Oracle has announced that its cloud marketplace can now be accessed by U.S. government customers.
The Oracle Cloud Marketplace, hosted within the Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Government Cloud, contains enterprise applications designed to help customers connect and extend their data center network and protect workloads beyond Oracle Cloud-native security options.
It has obtained authorization from the Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program, ensuring that available products comply with the highest standards of security and compliance, Oracle said.
According to Scott Twaddle, vice president of regulated markets at Oracle Cloud Infrastructure, the availability of the Oracle Cloud Marketplace allows for the automation of the provisioning of Oracle applications and databases, as well as third-party software.
“This simplifies migrations from on-premises environments to the cloud, dramatically reducing deployment times to hours, instead of days or weeks,” Twaddle said.
Oracle PartnerNetwork members lauded the availability of the cloud marketplace to government customers. Companies within the Oracle partner ecosystem offer solutions to maintain business operations, ensure cybersecurity and solve complex challenges.
Jim Richberg, public sector field chief information security officer at Fortinet, said the marketplace expansion gives government customers the option to fully automate the deployment of multilayer security for their cloud-based applications.
Curtis Dukes, executive vice president and general manager of security best practices at CIS, welcomed the opportunity to offer CIS Hardened Images in Oracle Government Cloud Marketplace regions. CIS Hardened Images, according to Dukes, provide pre-configured security to help government entities meet industry standards and establish a valuable baseline for compliance.
