SECUDE Announces New HALOCAD Plug-in for Bentley’s MicroStation

LUCERNE, JULY 2021: SECUDE, a leading data security provider specializing in security for SAP® software, are excited to announce a new HALOCAD Plug-in for Bentley’MicroStationa CAD software platform for two and threedimensional design and drafting and is used in the architectural and engineering industries.

HALOCAD leverages Microsoft Information Protection (MIP) to encrypt CAD files. It is tightly integrated with MIP and fully supports all implementation scenarios of Azure Information Protection (AIP) and Rights Management Service (RMS). This new HALOCAD Plug-in for MicroStation can read protected files, enforce corresponding privileges, and change Microsoft Information Protection labels. Protected files can only be opened and modified by authorized users, thus protection continues to remain even when the file is accessed by multiple users across companies.

“We are very pleased to launch a brand new HALOCAD Plug-in for MicroStation”, says Holger Huegel, VP Technology, SECUDE. “Manufacturing and high-tech design industries manage their most critical intellectual property (IP), like 2D and 3D design assemblies and elements, including building infrastructure modeling features and technical drawings based on CAD files. These files are accessed and used by multiple users across departments and users outside the company’s IT boundaries. This brings in certain risks in terms of safety and integrity. The new HALOCAD Plug-in is the data-centric solution that applies Microsoft Information Protection and enables you to mitigate this risk”.
