SECUDE Announces Latest Version of Halocore, an SAP Data Protection Solution

Halocore Helps SAP Users Ensure Data Security and Prevention of Data Loss

ALPHARETTA, GA--(Marketwired - May 24, 2016) - SECUDE, an innovative data security provider specializing in security for SAP software, announced today the availability of the latest version of its flagship data-centric security solution, Halocore. The upgraded version includes additional features that enhance the effectiveness of the solution's core functionality. Halocore prevents sensitive data loss and adds protection against the theft of intellectual property when data is extracted from SAP environments.

"SAP provides strict security measures for data within its boundaries. Data is regularly moved outside those secure borders for reporting, analytics, and collaboration, leaving sensitive business-critical data unprotected and susceptible to theft or loss," said Michael Kummer, President Americas at SECUDE. "Companies are increasingly becoming aware of the risk of data loss, yet have no idea what information is leaving their systems. SAP users can take advantage of Halocore's ability to track, monitor, and analyze all data that moves outside the secure boundaries of SAP to discover possible threats and extend the existing roles and authorizations configured in SAP to classify and protect data, closing the gap that exists between enterprise and SAP security."

Latest Halocore features include:

1. KPro: Halocore now has the ability to protect KPro content that is stored in the SAP system database
2. BO/BI and BEx: With Halocore sensitive data exports from BO/BI and BEx can now be classified and protected
3. Logging attributes: In addition to logging SAP data exports, Halocore's log attributes are now able to indicate and record a user's decision and the system's response on a downloaded file.

Halocore directly integrates with SAP applications allowing full contextual awareness about user details, the data itself, and the surrounding technical environment. By installing Halocore, organizations can leverage their existing investments in classification, blocking, or protecting by making it an instant process that extends their security infrastructure into sensitive SAP data.
