SAP Data Security

Software from SAP represents a core operational foundation for many of the world’s largest enterprises, powering such core applications as enterprise resource planning, data warehousing, materials management, and more. Instituting SAP data security represents a critical requirement and a high-stakes effort.

The Vormetric Data Security Platform enables you to encrypt and secure sensitive assets in your SAP applications and databases.

SAP has qualified Vormetric Transparent Encryption v6.0.3 with HANA v2.0 to deliver data encryption, key management, privileged user access control, and granular file access audit logs.


  • Securing Sensitive Data in SAP Applications

    SAP applications epitomize the term “business critical” and store a wide range of sensitive and regulated data, including personally identifiable information, payment data, health records, intellectual property and more.

  • Protecting Databases in SAP Environments

    SAP supports many databases, including IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle and Sybase, among others. It is essential, therefore, for SAP users to protect those databases and the sensitive data they include with SAP data encryption.


  • Vormetric Transparent Encryption

    With Vormetric Transparent Encryption, you can secure sensitive assets in the databases running in your SAP environment, such as a mix of IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL, Oracle and Sybase.

  • Vormetric Application Encryption

    For organizations that need to apply more granular SAP data encryption, including at the column or field level within databases, Thales eSecurity offers Vormetric Application Encryption. Vormetric Application Encryption simplifies the integration of encryption into your SAP applications for SAP data protection. The product features standards-based APIs, which are used to perform cryptographic and key management operations.


  • Seamless Implementation

    With the Vormetric transparent approach, your organization can implement SAP data encryption without having to make changes to your applications, infrastructure or business practices.

  • Granular Access Controls

    Vormetric Transparent Encryption provides fine-grained, policy-based access controls that restrict access to encrypted data. Privileged users—whether cloud, virtualization, or database administrators—can manage systems, without gaining access to encrypted data, unless they have expressly been granted permissions to do so.

  • Proven, Compliant Approach

    With Vormetric encryption solutions, your organization can leverage an approach that has been proven to meet rigorous data governance and compliance requirements in SAP environments. This enables organizations to satisfy compliance requirements by encrypting covered data and produce audit logs and reports.
