State Library of Victoria entrusts Oracle software support and security to Rimini Street

Daniel Benad , Group Vice President and Regional General Manager , Oceania , Rimini Street

The State Library of Victoria , Australia ’ s oldest library , has entrusted the support and maintenance of its Oracle E-Business software to Rimini Street .

Rimini Street is also providing the library with its Advanced Database Security ( ADS ) and Advanced Application Middleware Security ( AAMS ) solutions , enabling an approach to security that can block vulnerabilities in hours – unlike traditional and old vendor software patch models that can take months to implement .
Bradley Vice , Chief Financial Officer at the State Library of Victoria , said : “ Rimini Street worked with our team to identify and provide solutions for the risks we face . The team enjoy the service we ’ re providing and are pleased with Rimini Street ’ s responsiveness and the security capability they provide .”
Daniel Benad , Group Vice President and Regional General Manager , Oceania , Rimini Street , said :
“ Patches and upgrades require costly and time-consuming regression testing and downtime , and this level of disruption to fix a discovered security vulnerability simply leaves ERP customers exposed to attack .
“ Large institutions such as the library require fast solutions to vulnerabilities , and a more proactive approach is required to protect the database and application middleware than simply waiting for a code patch to be developed , tested and installed . Protecting with a virtual shield from the outside has proven to be a more effective security solution .”

Steve Singer , Regional Vice President , Australia at Zscaler
