The new availability of Thales’s CipherTrust Tokenization in the SAP Data Custodian builds on a successful, long-term relationship between the two companies for encryption, tokenization and key management solutions. The tokenization solution in the SAP Data Custodian was developed by both organisations through SAP’s Co-innovation Lab, ensuring the security of sensitive data at the most fundamental levels of the application. SAP customers can now secure their private data at rest in a database, in use, and even during development.
“The release of the SAP Data Custodian Tokenization solution powered by Thales’s CipherTrust Tokenization service further advances our commitment to secure our customers’ private data as they migrate to the public cloud,” said Dr Wasif Gilani at SAP. “This new solution builds on the strengths of both partners to create a comprehensive, trustworthy solution for our customers as they operate their applications using sensitive data.”
Maintaining compliance with demanding security regulations
Today’s enterprises must ensure the privacy and security of sensitive data, including personally identifiable information (PII) and payment card information (PCI). In particular, the Schrems II decision mandates that all European companies conduct individual assessments of each data transfer to a non-EU country to ensure compliance. The new partnership between Thales and SAP allows customers to define security on a per-field basis in the application according to templates in the Data Custodian user interface. Field-level security protects private data before it is written to databases, simplifying database access controls and ensuring compliance with PII and PCI regulations.
“Modern enterprises recognize the importance of a comprehensive cybersecurity solution, protecting sensitive data throughout its entire lifecycle, including the earliest moments of data creation,” said Todd Moore, vice president of encryption products at Thales. “This new CipherTrust Tokenization solution, co-developed with our partners at SAP, will give users the confidence that their data is secure at all times even at the most granular, field level. We will continue to partner with companies like SAP to develop highly integrated solutions that ensure data security for all cloud users.”
Thales’s CipherTrust Tokenization solution is generally available today to secure all SAP applications supported by the SAP Data Custodian .
