55 threat detection by enforcing data access control from inception and protecting sensitive data even if it falls into the wrong hands. “Secude’s MPIP extension secures customers’ vital data when they collaborate with partners across the supply chain,” says Galatovic. “If using a competitor’s solution, this businesscritical information is vulnerable when shared externally. As Secude’s automatic data protection is integrated at the application layer, it secures sensitive data from the moment it’s created, versus being saved in an insecure format and then encrypted. That short window of exposure is all attackers need to gain access.” Secude also provides in-depth monitoring of SAP data access, storing the relevant data to prove compliance, and extending encryption to SAP and CAD files wherever they travel, simplifying data compliance for regulators or potential partners. Secude’s zero-trust protection safeguards governmental (e.g. defence contracts), business (e.g. financial information during closed accounting periods) and employee (e.g. HR) data. “Our partnership with the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA) enables us to deliver comprehensive security solutions, helping organisations tackle modern cyber threats and adhere to security standards,” Galatovic explains. “What’s more, being a MISA member has provided us with direct access to Microsoft Engineering, which has enabled us to create deep hooks into the MPIP technology and to integrate MPIP seamlessly into our CAD and SAP solutions. We also have access to the Microsoft Partner Marketing Team and the Microsoft field, which has boosted our marketing reach, enabling us to work hand-in-hand with the Microsoft sales teams to bring joint MPIP and Secude solutions to customers. Put simply, our MISA collaboration enables us to help organisations protect sensitive data, prevent costly leaks, and ensure regulatory compliance.” Galatovic is extremely proud that Secude’s automatic file security has been designed not to impact the end-user experience when downloading or sharing files. “Secude enables seamless collaboration with external partners even if they don’t have the latest security,” he explains. “Our clients, which include Infosys, Swisscom, Süss Microtec and MARS, have made cybersecurity a priority in today’s constantly evolving data security landscape and have ended their reliance on incomplete perimeter security by implementing our zero-trust protection.” “ Even the smallest security gaps expose companies to huge security risks, but our embedded MPIP zero trust protection means zero gaps” Photo composite: Unsplash/thisisengineering and Secude
