SECUDE at SAP® TechEd® && d-code®: Showcasing Data Protection Technology for Sensitive SAP Data

Company to Present SECUDE's Halocore for SAP NetWeaver®, a Data Protection Solution That Offers a Powerful Data-Centric Approach of Securing Sensitive Data Downloaded From SAP Applications

ALPHARETTA, GA--(Marketwired - Oct 15, 2014) - SECUDE, an SAP partner and a leading data security provider, will showcase its expertise and flagship data protection technology in booth 174 at the SAP® TechEd® && d-code® conference, taking place in Las Vegas on October 20-24, 2014. The company will demonstrate SECUDE's Halocore for SAP NetWeaver®, a technology that helps users of SAP software persistently protect their organization's critical information from unauthorized access and minimize the risk of data loss, leak or theft on-premise, in the cloud and across mobile platforms.

"SAP TechEd && d-code is a great venue to showcase the Halocore technology to the SAP community," said Michael Kummer, president of Americas, SECUDE. "SECUDE has been creating transformational solutions that enhance the security of SAP software environments for almost two decades. After we sold our Secure Login solution (currently known as SAP Single Sign-On) to SAP AG in 2011, we had immediately started looking for the next big thing. Many businesses see information as their most powerful and valuable asset. In the age when digitizing information is a norm, data security is taking the center stage. Our new solution, Halocore, is designed to give SAP customers persistent protection of their most sensitive data, while enabling compliance and boosting productivity and secure collaboration."

SECUDE's Halocore for SAP NetWeaver represents the next generation of data security solutions and protects an often-overlooked "blind spot" that may leave some of the most critical information vulnerable. Most users of SAP software have long recognized the unprecedented value of sensitive information and have deployed various security mechanisms to protect it. However, information that resides inside SAP applications is regularly downloaded for reporting, data crunching and analysis in a form of spreadsheets, reports and other documents. These documents are then moved to employees' laptops, mobile devices, the cloud or emails, without any previously applied protection.

By utilizing Microsoft Rights Management (RMS), the industry-leading document security technology, SECUDE's Halocore for SAP NetWeaver ensures that only authorized users can access sensitive information. Halocore is tightly integrated with SAP applications and uses strong encryption, while extending roles and authorizations configured in SAP systems to sensitive data leaving the secure boundaries of the SAP software environment. Halocore conveniently applies the company's information security policy to any file downloaded from applications based on the SAP NetWeaver technology platform, so the file can travel securely to any location inside and outside of the company's networks. In addition, the software offers rich auditing and reporting capabilities and enables compliance with various laws and regulations.
