Vormetric Data Security Use Cases

Safeguard Sensitive Data Across Your SAP Environments

Software from SAP represents a core operational foundation for many of the world’s largest enterprises, powering such core applications as enterprise resource planning, data warehousing, materials management, and more.

SAP applications store a wide range of sensitive and regulated assets, including personally identifiable information, payment data, health records, intellectual property, and more. These applications epitomize the term “business critical.” Consequently, if these systems should be breached, the results could be catastrophic and bring a business to a grinding halt. Instituting security in SAP environments represents a critical requirement and a high-stakes effort.

With the Vormetric Data Security Platform, your organization can implement the robust encryption and key management capabilities required to establish strong safeguards for sensitive data in SAP environments.

Vormetric Solutions for SAP Environments

With Vormetric, your organization can leverage an approach that has been proven to meet rigorous data governance and compliance requirements in SAP environments. The Vormetric Data Security Platform enables you to encrypt and secure sensitive assets in your SAP applications and databases. Vormetric offers these solutions and capabilities:

Vormetric Transparent Encryption

Vormetric Transparent Encryption offers the capabilities you need to employ strong encryption, with minimal effort and low performance overhead. With Vormetric Transparent Encryption, you can secure sensitive assets in the databases running in your SAP environment, such as a mix of IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, NoSQL, Oracle, and Sybase. Vormetric Transparent Encryption offers these key features:

  • Seamless implementation. By leveraging this solution’s transparent approach, your organization can implement encryption, without having to make changes to your applications, infrastructure, or business practices.
  • Granular access controls. Vormetric Transparent Encryption provides fine-grained, policy-based access controls that restrict access to encrypted data. Privileged users—whether cloud, virtualization, or database administrators—can manage systems, without gaining access to encrypted data, unless they have expressly been granted permissions to do so.
  • Detailed security intelligence. Vormetric audit logs capture all attempts to access protected data. When used in conjunction with security information and event management (SIEM) tools, these security intelligence logs can help you detect anomalies in data access and reduce the risks associated with advanced persistent threats (APTs). Further, these logs provide the vital intelligence needed to track and demonstrate compliance.

Vormetric Application Encryption

For organizations that need to apply more granular encryption, including at the column or field level within databases, Vormetric offers Vormetric Application Encryption. Vormetric Application Encryption simplifies the integration of encryption into your SAP applications. The product features standards-based APIs, which are used to perform cryptographic and key management operations. Vormetric Application Encryption equips you with these capabilities:

  • Protect sensitive data. Vormetric Application Encryption enables you to stop unauthorized individuals—whether they’re malicious administrators, hackers, or authorities with subpoenas—from accessing valuable data in databases.
  • Minimize performance overhead. Vormetric offers high-performance encryption and key management capabilities that have been proven to deliver the availability and performance needed in the most transaction-intensive environments.

Centralize Key Management

With the Vormetric Data Security Platform, you can eliminate encryption silos. You can use the Vormetric Data Security Manager to create, store, and secure encryption keys for Vormetric Transparent Encryption, Vormetric Application Encryption, and many third-party encryption products. As a result, you can minimize operational costs while meeting all relevant regulatory requirements.
