Data Management Cockpit

Secure Sensitive Data to Mitigate Risk and Comply with Regulations Unsecured data can harm a business' reputation if it falls in the wrong hands. Personally identifiable information and credit card data, for example, is vulnerable to misuse by employees or by hackers and other hostile external actors. Corporations need to ensure that sensitive data is secured at all times to mitigate risk to the company, comply with regulations, and avoid potentially hefty fines or loss of business due to security breaches. The Dolphin Data Management Cockpit (DMC) enables organizations to mask, encrypt or purge selected data in SAP systems according to best practices to protect the privacy and security of the data. With DMC, organizations do not have to restrict access to entire transactions or views in SAP applications. Instead, organizations can specify selected fields, records, or tables that must be secured. DMC then applies the security settings to the data across all SAP modules. The same security settings that apply to transactional data, therefore, are also applied to downstream applications such as BW or BI. Organizations choose to use DMC to:

  • Mask sensitive data in online systems to retain data but prevent access by users
  • Encrypt data in online systems to enable limited access to users with an authorized security key
  • Purge sensitive data that is no longer needed
The advantage of DMC is that allows organizations to secure or purge data in SAP systems without affecting the integrity of the system. Business processes or reports that rely on that data will continue to work as designed, but sensitive data will be protected. It also ensures that if data is being purged from the system that the purge is done correctly and completely, according to SAP best practices. DMC ensures that organizations are not at risk of being out of compliance due to data remnants that can be left in the system from simply deleting the data. Download_PDF
