Security for SAP® Archived Data

DataVolumeManagement

Companies today are finding themselves not only struggling to manage big data from multiple sources, but also manage security issues around the data. Much of this is coming from stepped up concern around breaches in security of electronic information. eCommerce, with a multitude of payment options, transmits and stores massive volumes of business sensitive, personal information. Retail establishments, government agencies at all levels, the medical industry and other entities are rife with terabytes of personal and business data. In addition to security breaks, companies regularly divest, split up, acquire and merge business units. In these circumstances, data is ‘divided’ up among business entities causing concern for privacy for what is removed, deleted or retained. This situation is one that if not done carefully, affects not only personal information but can adversely impact the very nature of one or more of the businesses involved. Many new government regulations at the federal and state levels as well as internationally have been established in the last decade to protect privacy; some have gone as far as to require companies to store sensitive information such as credit card, social security numbers and other personally identifiable information in an encrypted format.
