Oracle Firewall?

+1 vote

What does Oracle recommend for an enterprise type firewall?
I can understand they have a their own firewall for the database but what about all other security solutions do they recommend say Barracuda or SonicWall etc etc. Anyone know what Oracle uses for a firewall themselves?

Network firewalls play an important role today in protecting data centers from unauthorized, external access. Data center attacks, however, have grown increasingly sophisticated, by-passing perimeter security, taking advantage of trusted middle tiers, and even masquerading as privileged insiders. As a result, enforcing security controls around the database has become critical. Oracle Database Firewall creates a defensive inner-perimeter that monitors and enforces normal application behavior, helping prevent SQL injection, application bypass, and other malicious activity from reaching the database. enter image description here

I have a hosted VM with a provider, which I've set up mainly as a private mail server. It needs to be protected by some sort of firewall, but there are several to choose from, apart from just writing rules for iptables by hand. I don't think I'll be needing an extreme amount of rules.

Writing rules for iptables is not something I've done in many years, so I was wondering about using either ufw, shorewall or ferm. Has anyone got any experience with either of these? I'm looking for something that is easy to set up and maintain. A pointer to a good guide on any of these would also be much appreciated, especially one that centers on protecting a machine that doesn't serve as a firewall for an entire network, it only has the one interface.

Any suggestions?
