SECUDE has signed an Interoperability and Joint Marketing Agreement with Microsoft. The agreement also authorizes SECUDE to work with Microsoft to integrate HALOCORE with Microsoft Azure Information Protection providing additional security to SAP users.
HALOCORE® extends the SAP access control shield for IP, PII and even Toxic Data and other sensitive data beyond an SAP enterprise application’s boundary. HALOCORE intercepts the data being downloaded from SAP and applies fully customizable classification labels to the document metadata.
SECUDE has come to learn a sad fact. Those responsible for the safety and security of their companies data (IP) often fail to comprehend a serious risk that stares at them straight in the face – malicious insiders. There are media articles galore on this danger, but not many seem to learn the lesson.
The Chairman and Managing Director of SECUDE, Dr. Heiner Kromer, was recently at the University of Lucerne to promote the department of International IT Management at the University of Lucerne. Here is an exclusive interview with Dr. Kromer. The interviewer is Dr. Bernhard Haemmerli – Professor, Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Gjøvik University College.
SECUDE will participate at SAPPHIRE NOW® and ASUG Annual Conference being held June 5–7 in Orlando, Florida. SECUDE’s booth will also have a key representative from Microsoft to showcase how HALOCORE controls and protects data exports from SAP applications with Microsoft AIP.

HALOCORE is a unique technology that protects intellectual property and other sensitive information extracted from SAP systems. The new version, HALOORE 5.0, displays a significant change in product architecture featuring scalability and industry-agnostic future-proof applicability.
HALOCORE finds mention in Microsoft’s application support website due to its innate capability to apply classification and protection leveraging Microsoft’s Azure Information Protection policies for SAP downloads on demand and fully automated.
Information, such as pricing, inventory management and consumption-based planning, that is included in SAP Material Management need to be protected. Often access to such complex and sensitive material data is unregulated based on the quoting procedures and exports of such information are frequent.
It now known to the entire world, and not just Facebook users, that data of over 50 million accounts have been misused in direct violation of agreed terms between the Social Media giant and ‘integrated’ third-party applications. This could have been avoided had proper ‘safeguards’ been taken.
