Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) is a next-generation infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offering architected on security-first design principles. These principles include isolated network virtualization and pristine physical host deployment, which were previously difficult to achieve with earlier public cloud designs. With these design principles, OCI helps to reduce risk from advanced persistent threats.
OCI benefits from tiered defenses and highly secure operations that span from the physical hardware in our data centers to the web layer, in addition to the protections and controls available in our cloud. Many of these protections also work with third-party clouds and on-premises solutions to help secure modern enterprise workloads and data where they reside.
This document describes how OCI addresses the security requirements of customers who run critical and sensitive workloads. It details how security is fundamental to the architecture, data-center design, personnel selection, and processes for provisioning, using, certifying, and maintaining OCI.
