Organizations are increasingly becoming aware of the need focus on data security. SECUDE, after the sale of its immensely popular Single Sign-On module to SAP, is now gaining the attention of global companies and media for its unique data security products – HALOCORE and HALOCAD. The Enterprise World magazine recently caught up with SECUDE to feature the company in its magazine.
With the current HALOCORE Release 5.1, SECUDE uses the MIP SDK to automatically provide authorized SAP downloads with the appropriate MIP protection template. This extends the SAP authorization concept for data beyond the SAP system boundaries.
A startling research report highlighted by a recent Reuters article on SAP data security reveals that attacks by hackers targeting large ERP software, such as SAP, are at an alarming raise and that many large corporates are falling victim. The reason for this is due to an obviously overlooked issue: Lack of importance to data security.
The latest incident of data loss by the National Health Service in the UK reconfirms that data leaks needn’t always be man-made. With increasing reliance on automation and system-to-system communication, it is imperative that organizations constantly monitor data flows.
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.
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.
Philipp Meier is the Vice President of Research & Development. He has been at the core of developing HALOCORE and is thus privy to HALOCORE-Microsoft relations since the beginning. This is his perspective on HALOCORE – the decisive DLP solution that SAP users need.
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.
