D’Amo for SAP, developed by data encryption and web security solution provider, Penta Security Systems Inc. (CEO Seokwoo Lee, www.pentasecurity.com), is an encryption solution that was specifically designed to run on SAP. Loads of personal data and confidential information is stored in company SAP systems. This type of information is required by law to be encrypted in many nations throughout the world, particularly in Korea, where a new privacy act has been enforced since the beginning of 2013. Moreover, sales information residing in SAP is some of the most critical data that a company is advised to secure against breach attempts.
It is not possible to encrypt data on SAP using pre-existing encryption solutions because they do not allow users to freely modify stored business application data. This makes most enterprises hesitant about adopting encryption solutions for their SAP. To overcome this limitation, Penta Security Systems Inc. released the SAP encryption solution in 2012, aptly named “D’Amo for SAP”, which comes equipped with a patented encryption technology known as FPE (Format Preserving Encryption).
The SAP Encryption Solution
D’Amo for SAP’s encryption technology has been certified by SAP, guaranteeing the stability and performance of D’Amo for SAP systems. Along with D’Amo for SAP’s encryption technology, its appliance-type KMS (Key Management Server) offers secure key management for strong authority control.
Previously, it could be quite a complicated process to encrypt data in an ERP. D’Amo for SAP and its included KMS are easily deployed in SAP systems without those complications. In addition, real-time monitoring of the system resources and auditing features make managing a secure SAP system convenient.
Penta Security’s Focus
Penta Security has recently been focusing on small and medium-sized medical centers. As a result, in March they formed an alliance with Choongwae Information Technology, an OCS/EMR provider. This alliance makes it possible to provide D’Amo for SAP together with Choongwae Information Technolgoy’s OCS/EMR product, CI OCS/EMR. CI SFE is a mobile version of CI OCS/EMR programs and is mostly used by medical centers and pharmaceutical companies.
