Why SAP Needs Security
Penta Security also offers Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE) technology for our SAP solution, D’Amo for SAP.
FPE has taken a renewed interest because of the recent release of standards published by NIST. FPE allows data to maintain it’s schema without making changing to the database or applications. For example, when FPE is applied to a credit card number with 16 digits, it will produce a different 16 digit number. This will still protect a user’s Personal Identifiable Information (PII) in case of a breach. Companies can meet compliance for regulations such as PCI-DSS without taking on huge expenses to apply changes to internal systems such as SAP.
D’Amo for SAP utilizes technology created by Penta Security’s Security Technology Lab, which has researched encryption for over 20 years and possesses encryption know-how accumulated through over 2,000 references.
The most important thing for encryption is key management. In addition, as well as the repository, encryption of communication sections where data are transferred is very important.
D’Amo for SAP includes the exclusive key management server and SAP-certified encryption of communication sections.
By using FPE technology, safe key management through the hardware type exclusive key management server, and the certified communication encryption technology are possible.
