Quest Software to Provide Subscription Model of Toad for Oracle

Quest Software, a global systems management, data protection, and security software provider, is offering Toad for Oracle 14.0, a tool for developers and database administrators that reduces cost and risks.

The newest release of Toad for Oracle, a solution within the newly unified Information Systems Management (ISM) business portfolio, allows individual users and small organizations to take advantage of a new Base Edition Subscription offering which provides a desktop subscription that features pushed auto-update, auto-renew, and license management alerts.

New security software development lifecycle (SSDLC) processes available within Toad for Oracle help subscribers heighten compliance requirements to support today’s software security standards, according to the vendor.  

Addressing the need to easily secure data in a flexible manner, Toad for Oracle 14.0 allows developers and DBAs to push new updates automatically so the latest releases with patches to security vulnerabilities are always in place.

Delivering a new subscription model for Base Edition with SSDLC processes, users can minimize the risk of data breaches without compromise.

“As demand for more flexibility increases, this new subscription model aligns with today’s users’ purchasing needs as well as their desire for simplified upgrading processes, which we view are mission critical with the constant onslaught of breaches occurring,” said Chris DeBiase, chief operating officer at Quest Software. “For those individual users and smaller companies with limited budgets that have been getting by with Toad Freeware, they will now be able to enjoy all the capabilities of commercial Toad for Oracle with a 12 month subscription at an affordable price.”
