SECUDE’s HALOCORE 4.3 Achieves SAP-Certified Integration for SAP S/4HANA®
Lucerne, 11 July 2017: SECUDE, SAP partner and leading data security provider specializing in security for SAP® software, today announced that the latest version of its software solution, HALOCORE 4.3, has achieved SAP certification as integrated with SAP S/4HANA®. HALOCORE is a unique solution for the protection of sensitive data, such as intellectual property and personal data, that are exported from SAP software. The upgraded version of the data-centric security solution includes additional features that enable SAP users to monitor the data exchange between applications.
HALOCORE 4.3 enables SAP users to monitor machine-to-machine communication
HALOCORE directly integrates with SAP applications, allowing for contextual awareness about user details, the data itself and the surrounding environment. In this way, users of SAP software can take advantage of HALOCORE’s ability to track, monitor and analyze data that moves outside the secure boundaries of the SAP software environment. This helps them discover possible threats and extend the existing roles and authorizations configured in SAP software to classify and protect exported data, closing the security gap that exists between the enterprise and SAP software environments.
“Most large enterprises typically use SAP ERP to manage business operations across departments and for customer relations,” says Dr. Heiner Kromer, Chairman SECUDE AG. “This is true across industries. As a result, a large expanse of data continues to be generated and held in systems running SAP ERP. However, owing to an ever-growing need to enhance collaboration, organizations increasingly break silos and share data, across departments, across geographies, across roles and across enterprise platforms. This is where the challenge is.”
The new version of HALOCORE 4.3 extends the capability of controlling data exports by covering the background data-transfer processes as well. With Data Stream Intelligence (DSI) machine-to-machine communication between SAP ERP and its surrounding systems can be monitored, supporting the most common SAP data exchange methods such as RFC, ALE (IDocs) and web services. In addition, export files, which are generated and downloaded in the background, are automatically protected and labeled with the corresponding sensitivity classification.
HALOCORE 4.3 achieves SAP-certified integration for SAP S/4HANA
The SAP Integration and Certification Center (SAP ICC) has certified that HALOCORE 4.3 integrates with SAP S/4HANA using standard integration technologies. SAP S/4HANA is the next-generation business suite, built for the SAP HANA® platform, with on-premise and cloud deployment options. It is designed to act as the digital core, helping customers drive digital transformation across their entire organizations, taking advantage of the award-winning, role-based user experience of SAP Fiori®.
“SECUDE’s close collaboration with SAP is key to the effectiveness of HALOCORE data security solution”, says Dr. Heiner Kromer. “The renewed certification by SAP and expansion to cover support for SAP S/4HANA is a confirmation of the tight integration and effective functionality of HALOCORE within the SAP software environment. SECUDE is looking forward to continuing its successful cooperation to support SAP software users and their data security.”
