SECUDE Strengthens Collaboration with Microsoft; Achieves Microsoft Co-Sell Ready Status

Microsoft Co-Sell Ready Status is a top-tier Microsoft Program that enables SECUDE to offer critical value for its clients in data-centric security.

LUCERNE, NOVEMBER 2020: SECUDE, a Microsoft partner and leading data security provider specializing in security for enterprise applications like SAP® and CAD, today announced its validation as a Microsoft Co-Sell Ready Partner. 

Dr. Heiner Kromer, CEO, and Founder, SECUDE International AG., said, “SECUDE is proud to be a partner of the Microsoft Co-Sell Ready program. We have been partnering with Microsoft for eight years now across the Microsoft security portfolio and Azure infrastructure, but this advanced level in the partnership shows the confidence that Microsoft has in our joint value to the customers”. He added, “Together we will enable our clients to take full advantage of all the benefits of a cyber-defense solution that is designed to protect Microsoft customers”.

SECUDE HALOCORE® is a unique extension to Microsoft Information Protection for protecting intellectual property and other sensitive information extracted from SAP systems. By integrating directly with SAP, it protects data with automated classification, unauthorized download blocking, and mapping of SAP access policies to Microsoft Information Protection labels. This innovative approach allows enterprises to maintain a unified labeling over sensitive documents extracted from SAP throughout their lifetime.

SECUDE HALOCAD® is the only solution to integrate Microsoft Information Protection into CAD environments. Using the solution’s classification engine, HALOCAD automatically protects native CAD files during the checkout procedure of various PLM repositories. Applying Microsoft Information Protection labels to the data file, it allows an easy and secure exchange of the files between employees, partners, or suppliers. Subsequently, HALOCAD also enables CAD applications from different vendors to consume protected files and preserves the existing user experience.

The addition of SECUDE’s offering to Microsoft’s range of packaged solutions is another step towards providing the highest level of data security for businesses that follow the “Zero Trust” strategy with security solutions from Microsoft.

Through the co-selling program, Microsoft and SECUDE will work together to promote robust data-centric solutions for its clients. It also enables SECUDE to collaborate with Microsoft’s sales organization, and other Microsoft partners, to rapidly grow sales and usage of SECUDE and Microsoft’s M365 E5 Compliance.
