Micro Focus launches SecureData Sentry for privacy compliance

Micro Focus has launched SecureData Sentry to help companies comply with privacy regulations such as GDPR, PCI DSS, and HIPA.

The company has announced SecureData Sentry, an expansion of its Voltage SecureData portfolio, to accelerate time to value for Hybrid IT data security and to protect data in applications across the enterprise. It claims that privacy compliance ‘can now be seamlessly enabled end-to-end’ for commercial or proprietary applications that are mission-critical to the business, including the migration to cloud workloads.

Sentry simplifies data protection for a wide range of applications without modification or integration required. In addition, Format-Preserving Hash, which is the newest addition to Voltage data protection methods, provides non-reversible de-identification, supporting use cases which call for data anonymisation.

“The rapid adoption of cloud applications creates new risks, as data is constantly flowing to and from on-premises systems and cloud services,” said John Delk, general manager of the Security Products Group at Micro Focus. “Strict privacy regulations such as GDPR, PCI DSS, and HIPAA, along with limited trust in hosted environments, could expose valuable data, anywhere it may exist. SecureData Sentry simplifies and accelerates Voltage data-centric security deployment in cloud, commercial, and in-house applications, without critical application changes or integration required – helping reduce the risk of deploying hybrid IT solutions.”

Voltage SecureData Sentry claims to promote a ‘non-disruptive, transparent’ approach to privacy compliance and the secure use of data. Is does this by maintaining centralised enterprise control over encryption keys and data in cloud services.

It also brokers data privacy to enable new value creation and policy compliance on protected data by transparently protecting data fields and files flowing to or from the cloud, and in and out of applications and databases. The solution also enables interoperability of encrypted data between multiple SaaS applications and maintains consistent data protection with on-premises applications.

Micro Focus, a global enterprise software company, delivers customer-centered innovation across DevOps, Hybrid IT Management, Security & Data Management, and Predictive Analytics. It claims to reduce help users reduce organisational risk and monitor privileged accounts, deliver  frictionless authentication and authorisation controls, detect known and unknown threats in the enterprise, and centrally manage identities to improve security, secure data, and protect corporate devices and data.
