HPE releases new data protections, encryption tools 

 Released yesterday were HPE SecureData with Hyper Format-Preserving Encryption (FPE), and Hyper Secure Stateless Tokenization (SST).

 According to the company Hyper FPE technology delivers a National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)-standardized method of protecting data in use, at rest, and in motion. The release includes Unicode format- and character set-preserving encryption for data in languages such as German, French, Spanish, Turkish, and more.

 “With the dissolving network perimeter, organizations are now challenged with protecting what attackers are actually after – the data,” said Albert Biketi, vice president and general manager, HPE Security – Data Security at Hewlett-Packard Enterprise. “HPE’s new data-centric Hyper FPE and Hyper SST solutions offer next generation encryption and tokenization to strengthen the data security posture for customers while ensuring they maintain regulatory compliance.”

 He said the new products are well-suited for government agencies, international businesses, as well as, European organizations that comply with the General Data Protection Regulation.

 Total GDPR related security software spending in Europe will reach $811 million in 2016, $1,335 million in 2017 and $1,713 million in 2018, according to estimates by analyst firm IDC.

 NIST is a non-regulatory federal agency within the United States Commerce Department’s Technology Administration.  The agency develops standard, guidelines, test and metrics for protecting non-national security federal information and communications infrastructure.

Why would NIST-standardization be important for non-U.S. organizations?

While NIST’s mandate is to protect U.S. federal assets, the agency’s standards have been adopted by many governments around the world.

“In the corporate world, cryptographic products that do not comply with NIST standards have traditionally been shunned, partially due to being perceived as non-standard implementations, and partially due to the absence of other credible standards,” according to cyber security analysts and ITinCanada contributor, according to Eric Jacksh.

Hyper FPE protects sensitive personal and structured data required by existing and emerging privacy frameworks – such as payment card information (PCI), national identification, and social security numbers – while preserving the original data formats. It is also optimized for protecting sensitive data in connected car IoT Systems and Connected Home use cases that require de-identification of location information, mobile device personal identities, and manufacturer identifier codes needed to meet data security and privacy requirements, according to HPE.

HPE Secure Data provides accelerated encryption up to 170 per cent in conservative scenarios building on the high-speed FPE technology positioned to handle high-volume demands associated with big data, cloud infrastructures, and IoT.

“The result is a strong encryption scheme that allows for minimal modifications to the way that existing applications and databases work – significantly reducing complexity for customers,” according to HPE.

SecureData with Hyper SST  offers an enhanced, patented approach to tokenization that maximizes speed, scalability, security, and manageability of the tokenization process, effectively doubling the existing HPE SST tokenization performance.

Strong encryption and tokenization are two of the most effective ways that organizations can make sure their company data is protected even if attackers are able to breach their system.

 

With this in mind, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise (HPE) has released new products designed to boost the encryption and tokenization capabilities of businesses.
