54 INTERVIEW Peace of mind with zero trust Secude’s Mario Galatovic explains why protecting sensitive data against leaks and growing cyberattacks should be a priority for enterprise businesses With hybrid working the norm (adopted by 39 per cent of workers, according to Gartner), enterprise businesses risk costly data leaks and reputational damage, not to mention noncompliance with regulators, if they have not implemented automatic file security for their entire workforce. Secude has two enterprise digital rights management (EDRM) solutions that extend Microsoft Purview Information Protection (MPIP) to SAP data exports and computer-aided design (CAD) applications. With HaloCORE and HaloCAD, Secude embeds zero-trust protection and data governance into files from the point of creation. By integrating the protection at the application layer, Secude protects business-critical SAP and CAD data, even if it is shared externally, leaked or stolen. “Even the smallest security gaps expose companies to huge security risks, be it from accidental leaks or targeted attacks,” says Mario Galatovic, CEO of Secude. “Our embedded MPIP zero-trust protection means zero gaps, taking away all the stress and giving companies peace of mind when downloading data or sharing files with external partners.” HaloCORE automatically monitors and secures all data exported from SAP, preventing data leaks and simplifying compliance. HaloCAD is the only MPIP solution that plugs directly into CAD applications to automatically secure CAD files, protect IP data and safeguard an organisation’s intellectual property. It applies MPIP authorisation tags to SAP data exports and CAD files at the point of origin, ensuring sensitive data is encrypted outside of an organisation’s IT perimeter and only accessible by authorised users.
