SECUDE Announces a New Release of Its SAP Data Protection Solution Halocore

Halocore Facilitates the Tracking and Analyzing of All Download Activity From SAP Applications, Helping SAP Customers Identify Sensitive Data Exports and Prevent Potential Data Loss

ALPHARETTA, GA--(Marketwired - Apr 4, 2016) - SECUDE, an innovative data security provider specializing in security for SAP software, announced today the newest release of its flagship data-centric security solution, Halocore, with added features to enhance the solution's core functionality. Halocore ensures the protection of intellectual property and other sensitive information extracted from SAP applications while adhering to compliance guidelines and preventing data loss or theft. This newest version of Halocore is immediately available.

"In today's technology-driven world, the risk of data loss and data theft has grown exponentially, and continues to grow with every new technical development. Enterprises that run their businesses on SAP possess many different security measures to protect and secure their sensitive data. However, when data is extracted beyond the secure boundaries of SAP, it is no longer protected by those security measures," said Michael Kummer, President Americas at SECUDE. "Not many companies are aware of what sensitive information is leaving their systems. Often, that sensitive information is sent to unsecure locations such as unprotected mobile devices, and public cloud environments. SAP users can protect against sensitive data leakage with Halocore by monitoring and analyzing all data download and extraction activity from SAP applications. Halocore detects potential threats while classifying and protecting data by extending the existing roles and authorizations configured in SAP, closing the gap between enterprise and SAP security."

Halocore's direct integration with SAP applications allows full contextual awareness about user details, the data itself, and the surrounding technical environment. With Halocore, organizations can extend their security infrastructure into sensitive SAP data, increasing data security and leveraging existing investments by automatically classifying, blocking, or protecting sensitive data as it is extracted from SAP applications.

Latest Halocore features include:

1. Log Pseudonymization: Halocore can now scramble personally identifiable information in its audit log to comply with European labor laws and regulations.

2. Data Analysis Dashboard: Halocore can now visualize key metrics related to download activity such as: Data volume by type, users with most download volume, etc.

3. SIEM integration: Halocore has enhanced customization of its logging functionality and can now forward audit logs to Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions, such as Splunk.
