SECUDE and DETECH to strengthen data security for SAP customers

Data Security and SAP specialist SECUDE expands presence through partnership with DETECH as Exclusive Distributor for Turkey

Walldorf/Istanbul, November 29, 2016 – SECUDE, a SAP and Microsoft partner and a leading data security provider specializing in security for SAP software, has appointed DETECH as Exclusive Distributor for Turkey to expand its sales channel and provide SAP customers with a solution protecting data exported from the SAP system.

With IT becoming more and more complex and interconnected, data security cannot be handled in the traditional way anymore. As information cannot be simply contained inside specific systems or enterprise borders, a future-oriented approach is to protect the data itself rather than the storage location or communication channel.

“Due to new technology trends such as Enterprise Mobility and BYOD, securing your endpoint, your perimeter or focusing on infrastructure-related security solutions is not sufficient any longer”, said Cem Uctum, Director of DETECH. “Enterprises need to understand who is trying to access corporate assets and applications and what they are trying to achieve. It is essential to relate this access to the risk involved, as not all access requests are equally risky. SECUDE’s context-sensitive and data-centric data protection solution HALOCORE solves this problem and is exactly the solution we’ve been searching for to provide companies using SAP with a way to secure their data even after it has been exported from the ERP system.”

SECUDE’s solution suite HALOCORE helps enterprises running SAP to strengthen the security of data extracted from SAP applications, thereby protecting intellectual property and other sensitive information while preventing potential data loss or malicious theft, ensuring adherence to compliance regulations. With HALOCORE, SAP users can not only monitor and analyze all data download and extraction activity from SAP applications to detect possible threats, but can also classify and protect that data with fine-grained permission policies, extending roles and authorizations configured in SAP. This approach bridges the gap between enterprise-wide and SAP security solutions, ensuring the same level of protection and control. HALOCORE is natively integrated with SAP applications and does not require an additional desktop application. This deep integration enables full contextual awareness, including detailed information about the user, the data itself and the technical environment. HALOCORE is extremely efficient in automatically classifying, blocking, or protecting sensitive data extracted from SAP applications, without blocking today’s necessary collaborations within and beyond company borders as not all data exports are equally risky.

“DETECH shares our vision of data-centric security and helps enterprises to find solutions for their business needs as well as for today’s security and compliance demands”, said SECUDE’s Managing Director Volker Kyra. “We are therefore very pleased about the partnership with DETECH as exclusive Distributor in Turkey. Turkey is a growing market for us as more and more companies using SAP are looking for ways to secure sensitive information beyond the borders of the ERP system and their company perimeters.”
