General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)

Micro Focus’s Highly Differentiated GDPR Portfolio

With a broad, integrated portfolio addressing all key areas of protecting data privacy and protection, underpinned by an advanced analytics ecosystem to provide deep information insight for automated policy setting, Micro Focus is uniquely suited to help customers comply with EU General Data Protection Regulation. Alternative approaches, based on a collection of disjointed point solutions, fall short in their ability to deliver cost savings, value, and risk mitigation—which can manifest itself in the form of fines, sanctions, lawsuits, and lost customer confidence—to the organization.

Data Protection Strategy

Encryption and Pseudonymization

The GDPR provides guidelines around the use of encryption and pseudonymisation as appropriate approaches to mitigate risks associated with the processing of sensitive personal data. Voltage SecureData with Hyper Format Preserving Encryption (FPE) is a proven, standards-based approach to protect sensitive personal data that meets these criteria without breaking existing business process. Hyper FPE preserves business functionality and data value for analytics, while it serves both encryption and pseudonymisation functions, which makes it a particularly useful technology to help enable compliance to GDPR. Stateless Key Management minimizes the complexities introduced by encryption—by generating keys on demand.

Breach Prevention

Micro Focus can also support the need to deploy cyber-security technologies to identify vulnerabilities, close security gaps and prevent high value data loss through breach. Through Voltage SecureData organizations can adopt proven, standards-based encryption and key management technologies for protection of sensitive data-at-rest, data-in-motion and data-in-use throughout the enterprise.
