Oracle now requires multifactor authentication on all instances within its cloud environment, Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
Every new tenancy is created with MFA enabled by default for cloud administrators, Oracle said. The company also “seeded” all preexisting systems to have a default Oracle Cloud Console policy to enforce the use of MFA.
Oracle provides a number of tools to give cloud administrators the ability to manage configuration and access control policies to create security policies, share data, and grant administrative rights. For example, all instances on OCI are created as private by default, which reduces the likelihood of a data breach where sensitive data was accidentally stored in a public storage bucket.
