I am looking for opinions on ASO.
We have Oracle (9.2.0.6-9.2.0.8, 10.2.0.2)
There are hundreds of users accessing the database from Windows boxes.
There are five app servers accessing the database from UNIX boxes.

There is a firewall around the entire site, but "non-trusted"
staff/temps/etc. have access to core machines.

The databases may contain sensitive data related to SSN/Credit Card,
FURPA and HIPPA laws.

How important is ASO for our environment?
What are the risks?
Can you (I) make a case to install it on all machines?
