New Fully - Automated Security Patching for Oracle’s E - Business Suite
The importance of applying security patches has never been greater, as the recent Equifax breach - the result of a missed patch – shows.

Patching E – Business Suite (EBS), to fix bugs, add new features or security updates, can be complex and time – consuming. To help address this patchVantage has today announced availability of its patching solution for EBS, which is fully – automated, very easy to use and highly cost - effective; pricing starts at around $10k, which includes back - up, cloning and patching functionality.

The new feature uses patching templates that have been extensively tested on core EBS releases; these can be easily uploaded, customised and shared, allowing complex patching to be deployed against multiple systems simultaneously.

As the number and size of databases increases so the demand for automation of core processes (backup, cloning and patching) grows. Over half (51%) of respondents in a study sponsored by Oracle said keeping databases current is a leading administrative challenge, while nearly three quarters (73%) want to automate.

patchVantage greatly simplifies the process of backing up, cloning and patching multiple databases; the software can be used on – premise or on the Cloud and is accessed using a modern HTML5 interface. The company recently added Snap (or Thin) Cloning functionality to address the needs of users of very large Databases.

The software is quick and simple to install, can be accessed from anywhere, and generates full log files, greatly reducing management overheads.

patchVantage was formally unveiled at Oracle OpenWorld 2016; the company is a member of both the UK Oracle Users Group and the Independent OUG in the US.

Built on over 20 years’ experience in Oracle systems of all sizes, in all sectors across the world, patchVantage represents a step – change in simplicity and value for money.

Founder and Technical Architect David McNish said: "We have extended patchVantage to address the needs of EBS users for a simple, fast, cost - effective solution to patching; with the sharp focus on cyber – security Oracle users face a serious challenge to stay protected, compliant and operational. patchVantage means business disruption and costs are minimised."

The product supports Oracle RDBMS releases 11g and 12c, E - Business Suite 12.1 & 12.2 and Fusion Applications – Fusion is the global platform that Oracle is rolling out following a series of acquisitions over the last few years.
