A lot of overseas companies, though, are also going through Sarbanes-Oxley compliance exercises, in case they want to accept investment from or merge with a US company. That's the sort of thing that can really screw up/delay an M&A event, depending on the auditors of the US company. In fact, many startups are even going through the effort of making sure they are at least well positioned to pass a Sarbanes-Oxley audit in case they are acquired by a US public company.

Sarbanes-Oxley applies to all publicly held American or quoted in America companies. Not to say that it should be ignored but it is not mandatory for everyone on this list

>>Would a dba be concerned about remote vulnerabilities for databases
that support only connections from application servers that are secured? Probably not.

I hope DBA's aren't using that argument. Sarbanes-Oxley applies to all publicly held companies. And the rules are just as concerned with internal security as external security. There very few oracle databases that you cannot connect to at all via sqlnet.
