Delphix Brings Powerful New Data Security Capabilities to SAP

Protection of sensitive SAP data helps enterprises stay compliant with impending GDPR data privacy regulations.

REDWOOD CITY, CA, February 12, 2018 Delphix, the company that has changed the dynamics of managing and consuming data, today announced new enhancements to the Delphix Data Platform that deliver advanced algorithms specifically tuned for SAP data with the ability to mask full volumes of SAP data with an unmatched level of speed, simplicity, and accuracy. With the upcoming GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) deadline and other regulatory demands, these enhancements accelerate the time it takes enterprises to meet compliance requirements.

The Delphix Data Platform removes the constraints on businesses and eliminates the need for expensive and lengthy service engagements to mask sensitive data.  Companies can now benefit from a modern approach and accelerate their release speed and application quality. 

The Delphix Data Platform now provides SAP customers the ability to:

  • Automatically identify sensitive data within SAP – that is subject to GDPR – in minutes;
  • Apply masking to sensitive data with high performance;
  • Enable teams to mask SAP data once, then effortlessly delivery multiple copies to on-premise or cloud SAP environments.

Just in Time for GDPR…

This new capability is highly relevant within the context of the EU GDPR which compels businesses to adopt privacy by design to safeguard the personal information of EU citizens. As the digital backbone of many modern businesses, SAP applications typically capture sensitive information, such as customer records, intellectual property and financial data. The Delphix platform gives these global businesses a comprehensive solution to define and enforce GDPR compliance policies within complex SAP environments. 

“GDPR is the most substantial privacy regulation hitting enterprises in the last 30 year,” added Holger Mueller, VP and Principal Analyst for Constellation Research. “As such, CxOs struggle to ensure that massive – and rising – amounts of data are ready to comply with GDPR. The clock is ticking and any solution that helps CxOs quickly navigate the process for GDPR compliance on SAP data is highly attractive.”

Secure More SAP Data, More Quickly 

Businesses can leverage these unique capabilities to accelerate application time-to-market and ensure compliance, across both SAP and non-SAP environments. Here’s how it works:

  1. First, the Delphix platform intelligently profiles the many database tables in SAP applications to pinpoint sensitive data.
  2. Next, it masks the fields with sensitive data in a consistent fashion by masking algorithms which can be applied to both SAP and non-SAP apps so that interfaces and referential integrity is consistent across testing landscapes whether SAP only or hybrid.
  3. Finally, with advanced data virtualization technology, Delphix instantly delivers masked data copies to non-production environments and gives SAP teams dynamic data controls.
  4. Teams using the Delphix platform have the ability to bookmark and rewind secure data to accelerate testing cycles and maintain high-quality data in SAP environments.
