  • Description - SecurDPS

    A powerful Tokenization and Encryption Solution for enterprise wide Protection of your sensitive Data

    SecurDPS is an on premise enterprise wide tokenization and encryption solution which provides the technology to successfully protect sensitive data with minimal efforts and in many cases without changing existing applications. SecurDPS allows organizations to take complete control of their sensitive data, lower compliance costs and significantly reduce the impact of data breaches.

    SecurDPS has evolved from comForte's HPE NonStop focused SecurData tokenization solution (SecurData is at the heart of SecurDPS, learn more) which meanwhile has become the most widely used tokenization solution on these mission critical HPE NonStop systems.

    The basis for the SecurDPS product suite is the flexible and sophisticated integration framework which allows introducing additional data protection layers for existing and new applications, in many cases even without changing any code in the respective application.

    These protection layers supported by SecurDPS can range from auditing of which user accessed a specific database record, to fully protecting sensitive elements or files with stateless tokenization or encryption, optionally combined with key protection in Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) and split-knowledge, dual control mechanisms. In addition, SecurDPS can also be seamlessly integrated with enterprise data protection solutions such as HPE SecureData. In combination with another enterprise protection solution, SecurDPS can provide the transparent integration capabilities for the other protection solution.

    In order to provide maximum flexibility, SecurDPS is offered with various modules to allow companies to easily find the optimal solution for their specific protection needs.

  • Introduction - SecurDPS

    Why should I care?

      • Data breaches can cause severe financial and reputational damages to businesses processing sensitive data.

      • Compliance rules and regulations such as PCI DSS, GDPR, HIPAA as well as national laws require organizations to protect sensitive customer data. Failure to implement these technologies can result in serious fines.

      • Failure to implement strong security measures for your customers will result in loss of business with existing customers and failure to acquire new customers.

      Records Lost Since 2013: 5.3 Billion (5,329,418,398)

      To put this into perspective, that is approximately:

      • 17 times the population of the USA (318,9 Million)
      • 4 times the population of China or India
      • 70 percent of the population of Earth (7.5 Billion)

    • Architecture - How does it work?

      SecurDPS uses the HPE NonStop platform to run its core framework and all tokenization operations, basically acting in a similar role to a tokenization appliance. Due to its design for security and high availability, reliability and linear scalability, the HPE NonStop provides an optimal platform for the core framework and security sensitive operations like tokenization.

      As depicted in the first diagram, the SecurDPS core on the HPE NonStop platform serves both local applications (e.g. Base24, Connex, etc) as well as other enterprise hosts with tokenization services. Enterprise hosts connect into the SecurDPS core on the NonStop over a secure connection using SSH. In combination with comForte's CSL product, enterprise applications can also use tokenization services via standard webservice protocols such as SOAP or JSON/REST. For more details see the SecurDPS Integration Options.

      comForte's patented highly efficient tokenization algorithm is stateless (aka. vaultless), scales linearly and has been vetted by independent cryptologists who are well recognized experts in the industry. If you want to know more, please see here for details on the Tokenization engine of SecurDPS.

      The actual integration of tokenization and encryption into existing and new applications can be performed in two ways:

      1. Classic approach of using an API
      2. Application transparent integration

      The sophisticated application transparent integration capabilities allow you to introduce the protection layer of tokenization or encryption into existing application without any source code change or even if into 3rd party applications. This saves time, efforts and costs in implementation.

      How does that work? See the detailed explanation of the SecurDPS integration options here

    • Features - SecurDPS Framework 

      Transparent Integration - In many cases no source code changes required
      The application transparent integration capabilities allow for integration of tokenization and encryption without changing or even having access to the applications' source code.
      Transparent Integration in SecurDPS is currently supported for all use cases on HPE NonStop (including Enscribe, SQL/MP, SQL/MX, IPC) as well as for sequential file processing use cases on Windows, Linux, Unix as they typically happen for settlement operations. Transparent integration into databases on platforms other than HPE NonStop is currently not supported. The database layer is in many cases not the right layer to integrate protection in for non-NonStop systems but instead do the tokenization/detokenization operations closer to the user.
      Contact us if you want to learn more.
      Easy and seamless integration with (Enterprise) Data Protection Solution
      Can easily and seamlessly be integrated with comForte’s tokenization engine or other data protection solution, such as HPE SecureData. In this way enterprise protection solutions which just provide an API can be enhanced with application transparent integration capabilities.
      SecurDPS then provides the glue between the application and the enterprise data protection solution avoiding having to rewrite any application code. The flexible framework of SecurDPS even allows to run tokenization engines at the same time if desired, or, do translation from one tokenization engine to the other. This allows for coping with heterogeneous tokenization environments and efficiency.
      Highly secure architecture
      Strong application process Authentication, Authorization and Auditing of data protection engine access. SecurDPS provides tight control mechanisms to configure which processes can access data very granularly, e.g. based on attributes like object file, process name, user ids, creator ids, and numerous other attributes. It also provides an audit log of all authorized access.
      Online migration support
      Tools for automatic no-downtime data migration as well as support for commonly used manual migration tools (e.g. FUP LOAD on HPE NonStop).
      Identification of sensitive data elements even in complex data structure
      Configurable for sensitive data elements within complex structures, including ISO8583 messages and custom formats.
      Extensible for custom data transformation needs
      A user exit provides support for performing any custom data transformation before or after the sensitive data element is processed by SecurDPS.
      Configurable data transformation to allow protecting any data with 3rd party protection engines
      Configurable transformation between host-specific data formats and formats supported by the protection engine (e.g. EBCDIC, dates).
      Support for interleaving multiple data elements for strong protection of small domain elements
      Supports interleaving of multiple data-elements, e.g. to enables secure protection of small domain data elements, e.g. sex (m/f) with the help of using other data elements as additional input (tweak).
      API for cases where direct control is desired
      Abstract data protection API that can be easily consumed by any HPE NonStop application.
      Leverages HPE NonStop fundamentals
      SecurDPS runs on HPE NonStop systems and leverages the key HPE NonStop fundamentals of reliability, scalability, and availability.
      Interacts seamlessly with Disaster Recovery solutions
      SecurDPS is compatible with data replication tools including those which also employ intercept technology. Any disaster recovery architecture is supported, including Active/Active.
      Highly flexible configuration framework
      SecurDPS is highly configurable and flexible enough to address not only your current, but also your future needs.
