>SECUDE and GigaTrust Partner to Offer An Integrated Security Solution for SAP Data Partnership to ensure protection of data leaving SAP and increase efficiency of IT infrastructures
Alpharetta, GA August 13, 2013 – SECUDE, an innovative data security provider, today announced a new technology partnership with GigaTrust, the market leader in Enterprise Rights Management content protection software solutions that enhance and extend Microsoft’s Rights Management Services (RMS). Under the terms of the agreement, GigaTrust becomes an authorized reseller of Halocore for SAP NetWeaver, SECUDE’s innovative information protection technology for data leaving SAP. GigaTrust extends classification and protection capabilities of the Halocore platform by syndicating it with its own solutions, Desktop Client and Enterprise Plus administrative tools.
As the data security market moves toward more convergence between the network, cloud and application layers, both SECUDE and GigaTrust recognize the need to invest in next-generation solutions that will deliver security across all environments. SECUDE’s Halocore platform allows SAP users to easily classify and protect sensitive data leaving SAP, such as financial or sales information by utilizing Microsoft’s AD RMS, the industry leading content protection technology. Securing sensitive information as closely as possible to the moment of creation allows documents to remain protected no matter where they may travel inside or outside of the organization.
In the near term, GigaTrust will extend this partnership by tightly integrating their solutions with SECUDE’s Halocore for SAP NetWeaver. GigaTrust’s Desktop Client extends RMS support to a variety of file types and related native applications. GigaTrust’s Enterprise Plus provides an easy-to-use administrative interface for RMS while its auditing features allow CISO’s to immediately see the who, what, where, when and how the data is used throughout the organization and beyond.
With Microsoft’s Office 365 (O365) and Azure Active Directory Rights Management (AADRM) cloud offerings, GigaTrust is adapting its Desktop, iOS and Android mobility solutions with Microsoft’s newly released AD RMS SDKs and ActiveSync IRM support for protected emails, attachments, and documents. The GigaTrust Enterprise Plus product will also be made available as an Azure cloud service. This will facilitate on-line and off-line rendering, with administrative and auditing oversight, of Office, Microsoft’s protected PDF and Adobe PDF documents delivered to and from the desktop and mobile devices. Newly adapted mobile solutions will also allow SECUDE’s SAP protected content to be accessible anytime, anywhere and on any device.
“Our partnership with SECUDE represents a significant breakthrough by positioning cross-functional enterprise systems such as SAP with rights management,” said Bob Bernardi, CEO of GigaTrust. “We are very pleased with this partnership because of the benefits provided to our current on-premise and soon to be in the cloud customers.”
“We are excited to have GigaTrust as one of our key partners to expand our market reach, particularly since their core expertise in Microsoft’s content protection technologies is extensive and synergistic with
SECUDE,” said Michael Kummer, President of SECUDE Americas. “We are pleased to offer this phenomenal solution that integrates our companies’ offerings in a most efficient and seamless way possible. SAP users can now benefit from a compelling security solution based on the latest RMS technologies.”
