SECUDE, an established global data-centric security service provider, today announced it has been awarded the highest possible scores in security, deployment, and usability in the KuppingerCole 2022 Market Compass Report: Secure Collaborationfor its outstanding ability in extending Microsoft Purview Information Protection (MPIP).

SECUDE products extend Microsoft Purview Information Protection (MPIP) for SAP (product HALOCORE) and CAD (product HALOCAD).

The SECUDE solutions protect data and files in SAP and CAD environments, for example when files are downloaded, exported, checked out for editing, or shared with suppliers. In both products, the security profile of the hosting application or data repository is transferred to that protected data and/or file leveraging MPIP.

SECUDE is mapping the process metadata from SAP and/or Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) systems to MPIP labels for all exports, downloads, and during file check-out. These systems are integrated into the SECUDE platform with an extensive portfolio of add-ons and plugins.

Holger Huegel, VP of Technology, Secude said, “We believe that SECUDE’s inclusion in the KuppingerCole report is a strong reflection of organizations moving away from rigid traditional perimeter security and towards those that prioritize Zero Trust, seamless data security, and automation. As a long-term collaborator with SAP and Microsoft, SECUDE has deep knowledge of how to incorporate MPIP for SAP and CAD, which is not covered by MPIP’s classification, labeling, and encrypting capabilities.

Our solutions provide data usage enforcement in key enterprise applications like SAP and CAD based on the most used Enterprise Digital Rights Management Platform (EDRM), MPIP, while preserving existing user workflows and process efficiency. Our services and ability to solve critical data security issues appeal to large enterprises that need to stay competitive and secure”.
