HALOCORE's value proposition is evidenced by global enterprise rollout with users such as Mars and Microsoft. The step to offer HALOCORE through SAP App Center highlights risks associated with downloading data from SAP and thus the need for a robust data-lifecycle-long security solution. Through HALOCORE, the global SAP customer base can capitalize on seamless integration of Microsoft AIP with SAP allowing standardized encryption and data sharing strategy across business applications.

This protection technology extends further into CAD applications, providing management of engineering and manufacturing companies the means of holistic data-centric security strategy with all the benefits of efficiency and cost reductions.

A data-centric security approach
HALOCORE is a unique technology that protects intellectual property and other sensitive information extracted from SAP systems. By integrating directly with SAP, HALOCORE protects data with automated classification, blocks unauthorized reports, and helps implement fine-grained access policies. This innovative approach allows enterprises to maintain a high level of control and security over sensitive documents extracted from SAP throughout their lifetime, even if these have been shared via email, downloaded to a recipient's PC, or printed as PDF.

HALOCORE is part of the digital transformation strategy through automating security without user interference.

Speaking to SAP clients through the App Center
SECUDE leverages multiple channels, such as Partners, Consultants and Digital channels in addition to its direct Sales team, when discussing with prospects and customers across the world. With operations across Europe, the United States, Asia and the Middle East, a direct channel hosted by SAP not only adds value to SECUDE's proposition, but also positions HALOCORE as an authorized SAP add-on.

"Having HALOCORE in the SAP App Center is the next credible step in presenting our data security product to SAP users worldwide. SAP has stringently reviewed the product and its functionalities. We consider its inclusion as authentication of the product by SAP," says Holger Huegel, VP - Technology.

"The evaluation process and the modalities to get added in the App Center was a rigorous process that clearly showcased SAP's seriousness in adding only those third-party products that truly complement its value."

"SECUDE shares Microsoft's vision of protecting customers' sensitive data so we see HALOCORE as a natural bridge that connects Microsoft Azure Information Protection with SAP applications' security control mechanism and as such a mutually beneficial proposition," says Gagan Gulati, Head of Product for Azure Information Protection at Microsoft Corp.
