I saw in a press release today that Oracle has announced its intention to buy Bharosa. This is a company that specialises in fraud prevention and strong authentication security solutions. This will add the following capabilities to the IAM stack:
- Proactive real time risk-analysis
- Strong authentication
- Fraud prevention
Working within Oracle’s Identity Management team, I see this as a really positive move for Oracle that will provide a real differentiator as well as a strong compliment for the existing products within the IAM suite.
I’m look forward to finding out more about Bharosa’s products in the coming weeks and months.
