Cloud compliance certifications further validate Oracle Cloud in highly regulated sectors

REDWOOD SHORES, Calif., March 29, 2017 — / — Oracle today announced it has achieved a series of compliance certifications and attestations for its Public Cloud offering, including certifications and attestations for ISO 27001, HIPAA, SOC1 and SOC2 for a number of core services. Administered by Schellman & Co., these certifications in industries such as healthcare help provide validation of Oracle’s offerings in areas including security, availability, processing integrity and privacy.

Oracle’s portfolio of Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) solutions received Service Organization Control (SOC) attestations for the following key services: Database Public Cloud Service, Java Public Cloud Service, Database Backup Cloud Service, Exadata Cloud Service, Big Data Cloud Service, Big Data Preparation Service, Big Data Discovery, Application Builder Cloud Service, Storage Cloud Service, Dedicated Compute Cloud Service, and Public Compute Cloud Service. These SOC certifications confirm Oracle’s compliance with international service organization reporting standards. SOC reports are standards that help organizations establish trust and confidence in their service delivery processes by assessing whether service organizations are performing their duties appropriately in a controlled, stable and secured environment.

Oracle recently received a Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) attestation for its Oracle Fusion Suite of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications—including Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Human Capital Management (HCM), and Customer Relationship Manager (CRM) Cloud Service—demonstrating that its SaaS solutions meet the requirements established by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services for organizations working in the healthcare industry. HIPAA attestations affirm the proper saving, accessing and sharing of individual medical and personal information, as well as compliance with national security standards to protect health data created, received, maintained or transmitted electronically.

Oracle recently received an International Standards Organization (ISO) 27001 certification demonstrating the proper management and security of assets such as financial information, intellectual property, employee details or information entrusted to an organization by third parties, for its Public Cloud SaaS suite of services in the core areas of Fusion ERP, HCM, CRM, Taleo Social, Taleo Business Edition, Service Cloud, Eloqua Marketing Cloud, BigMachines CPQ, and Field Service Cloud.

“Oracle is continuously investing time and resources to meet our customers’ strict requirements across highly regulated industries,” said Erika Voss, Global Senior Director, Public Cloud Compliance, Risk and Privacy, Oracle. “These new certifications not only validate the reliability and security features of the Oracle Cloud; they effectively make Oracle’s solutions available to thousands of new customers in the Healthcare and Public Sector industries.”
