Cloud Security assessment & management
Is your system architecture designed to prevent unauthorised access? Is your cloud
data and application secured from cyber threats? Have you conducted
adequate security analysis prior to adopting cloud technology? If any of
these concerns are troubling you too, let Vast Edge assist in getting out
of it. Vast Edge provides top-notch reliability, implements security
guidelines to ensure authenticated access control of cloud data, and

Security Analytics Services by Vast Edge
ArcSight Analytics is a big data behaviour based anomaly
detection solution giving enterprises customizable dashboard for visualizing
their users, network and applications integrated with SIEM, to prioritize events
according to compliance and offer DNS malware analytics.
RSA Security Analytics Decoder is a configurable real-time network
appliance for analysis of network packet and log data from endpoints to cloud. The

integrated approach that combines real-time correlation across structured and
unstructured data for continuous custom insights and forensic capabilities. IBM
solution helps find hidden malicious activity with deep evaluation and operation
on an organization's data.
Cisco Cognitive Threat Analytics automatically investigates
suspicious web traffic to establish a presence with response to the attacks
without additional hardware or software. It uses Structured Threat Information
Expression (STIX) and Trusted Automated Exchange of Indicator Information (TAXII)
for integrating with SIEM platforms.
Cloud Vendor Lock-In
In case of cloud migration, enterprises require an assessment to provision for a
better lift and shift of data and IT workload policy to orchestrate cost-cutting.
Vast Edge offers a state-of-the-art solution to deal with vendor lock-in scenarios to
aid in the optimization of the overall cost and performance of the infrastructure and
Lack of Insight and Control over Supply Chain
While adopting cloud migration, enterprises, in general, faces a lack of insight
and control over supply chain practices for hardware and technical aspects of their
services. Vast Edge provisions testing on the CSP's hardware to check for compliance
and reduce counterfeiting concerns like tampering, malware, and, spyware.
Patch and Version Management Complication
Vast Edge helps enterprises ensure security by monitoring, reviewing and installing
updates and patches in order to uphold system stability and performance.
Row/Column Level Security On OAC
Column Level Security
Vast Edge configured Column level security in OAC specifies sensitive columns
names, restricts users from accessing sensitive columns data and prevents malicious users from
discovering a column. Direct encryption of data methodology used by Vast Edge granularly encrypts
specific columns or parts of the column. Column level security leverages binary columns to store
encrypted data and different encryption keys for different columns.
Vast Edge deployed Column level security in OAC enables enterprises to encrypt the data in
the database and limit user access to data.
Our security experts limit access to data preventing stealth of files, wallet and DB.
Column level security simplifies the design and coding of security in your application
restricting user access to columns containing sensitive data.
These restriction enhances security while ensuring a reliable and robust security system.
It eliminates the need for introducing views to filter out columns for imposing access
restrictions on the users.
Dynamic Data Masking feature in column-level security uses masking policies to selectively
mask plain-text data in table and view columns in real-time.
External Tokenization mechanism enables accounts to tokenize data before loading it into
the database and detokenize the data at query runtime.
Row Level Security
Vast Edge offers row-level security in OAC to enable
enterprises to use group membership or execution context to control access to rows in a database
table and helps implement restrictions on data row access. It also allows developers to control
user access rights to information on a row, leveraging a high-level set of permissions. Oracle
enforces RLS to prevent data information within dashboards, tiles, reports and from unassigned
Row-Level security defines the security policy to
restrict access to objects based on specific entitlements and filters out the user access
using a predicate clause.
Oracle encryption security leverages table access
control without implementing custom stored procedures for insert, update, and delete SQL
The cumbersome process configured by Vast Edge,
greatly simplifies the design and coding of security leveraging codes and design changes.
By enforcing RLS, Vast Edge enables different users
to work with different subsets of data assigning a parameter that pulls data from datasets.
Vast Edge's deployed RLS enables enterprises to
provide access to other applications and users only to a certain portion of a table.
The access restriction logic is located on the
database tier that leverages access restrictions every time data access is attempted from
Oracle OAC deploys a security predicate that invokes
and enforce security policy and restricts access to row data in a table.
Methods of specifying Row Level Security
Vast Edge leverage OAC protocols to provide
different methods that specify row-level security for enterprises. This include:
to specify row-level security using the Set ID and dimension key fields.
to specify row-level security by associating a constraint with a dimension table.
to specify row-level security using existing tree hierarchies that are defined for a
Oracle Cloud Security Checkpoints

- Global load balancing together with Cloud Armour to protect your public apps.
- IAP manages user access for web-facing apps.
Google provides an encryption request for securing
enterprise critical secrets and downloads keys using KMS.
Google checklists enable DLP API that classifies your
data and implements AIM roles to restrict access to your datasets. It also provides audit
data access, data lineage and locations.
Auditing and Alerting
GCP checklists leverages Stack Driver to configure audit logging and to set up alerts.
