Delphix brings new data security capabilities to SAP
Delphix, the US-based Data-as-a-Service platform, has announced new enhancements to the Delphix Dynamic Data Platform that deliver algorithms specifically tuned to mask large volumes of SAP data. With the upcoming GDPR deadline and other regulatory demands, these enhancements aim to accelerate how enterprises meet compliance requirements.
As the digital backbone of many businesses, SAP applications typically capture sensitive information like customer records, intellectual property and financial data. The Delphix Platform aims to provide these businesses with a solution to define and enforce GDPR compliance policies within SAP environments. The updates to the platform will now enable SAP customers to automatically identify sensitive data within SAP applications and apply masking to this data once and enable delivery of multiple copies to various SAP environments.
This new capability is highly relevant within the context of the EU’s GDPR, which compels businesses to adopt privacy by design to safeguard the personal information of EU citizens, the company said. “GDPR is the most substantial privacy regulation hitting enterprises in the last 30 years,” added Holger Mueller, VP and Principal Analyst for Constellation Research. “As such, CxOs struggle to ensure massive - and rising - amounts of data are ready to comply with GDPR. The clock is ticking and any solution that helps CxOs quickly navigate the process for GDPR compliance on SAP data is highly attractive.”
