WEST CHESTER, PA and MORGAN HILL, CA (PRWEB) September 20, 2012
Dolphin, a solution provider for organizations using SAP® solutions, has introduced two new, unique applications designed to keep SAP solution data secure, regardless of whether it is active or archived.
The Data Management Cockpit and Archive Management Cockpit allow companies to mask sensitive data in SAP solutions as well as provide the capability to work with data outside of the standard archiving/purge programs when the process does not remove all the data. Dolphin’s Archive Management Cockpit can encrypt data that has been archived in SAP applications.
Dolphin’s Data Management Cockpit enables specific fields in live SAP solutions to be masked and yet still have the SAP records accessible, which provides transparent, uninterrupted access to information with an increased level of protection. Dolphin’s Archive Management Cockpit automates the encryption of data that was previously archived without encrypted protection or has lost encryption due to archiving. This allows companies to quickly protect data and comply with retroactive regulatory requirements such as the Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standards or the Personally Identifiable Information (PII) Act. Dolphin is one of the few SAP software solution and technology partners offering post-archived data encryption.
The new products are the latest solutions from Dolphin to address the information lifecycle management needs of companies running SAP solutions. Dolphin improves business performance by helping companies more effectively manage information to contain costs and gain actionable intelligence. The company’s information lifecycle management solution suite includes data archiving in support of SAP solutions, data and document retention, nearline storage and analytics, legacy decommissioning, and the implementation of comprehensive data management strategies and database health checks.
“The products have been designed to be highly configurable, allowing the encryption of company data in SAP solutions and archive files, as well as the flexibility to apply varied encryption technologies or other custom rule-based data cleansing, built on an organization’s corporate standards for data governance,” states Dolphin’s ILM Product Manager, Thomas Langner.
New federal, state and international regulatory and statutory requirements mandate the protection of personally identifiable information and encryption of payment card industry data, and there are similar security requirements for existing human resources documents and medical and financial information under the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX). Industry analysts expect many corporations will need to rapidly meet the new data encryption obligations or face significant fines for non-compliance. Dolphin’s new solutions are specifically designed to address these needs.
“The simplicity and speed of our new Data and Archive Management Cockpit solutions make it easier than ever for companies that run SAP solutions to further protect private data, even after it has been archived,” said Dolphin Chief Technology Officer Vishal Awasthi, who oversees the company’s new product development process. “Ensuring corporate compliance with new data protection laws is critical to minimizing legal liability as well as positioning the enterprise for greater flexibility in the future.”
These new Data and Archive Management Cockpit solutions also have a wide range of applications beyond personally identifiable information and payment card data. These solutions have value for governance, risk management and compliance, including the protection of important corporate intellectual property during divestitures when a company sells a business unit or splits it off as a standalone company and must ensure the protection of data for both parties.
